    I wonder how they haul it out of the water for service , Drydock ?

    In Palma de Mallorca there was a huge cat, new, that was seriuosly damaged when it slid off a marine railway. The boat was very hevily damaged and had an enormous tent built around it for repairs. I seem to recognize the carbon mast and fabric rigging. ... Is this the same boat ?

    Sure...I grew up in Annapolis. I remember when the big sailing yacht broke thru the deck of the Trumpy Syncrolift.

    More often when cruising around the world I see small dry docks.

    Possible that a pair of cranes could lift a big cat...would need a sophisticated shipyard.

    The 30m Cat in Mallorca , that was damaged, is called Orion I believe. Somekinda railway accident.

    All I can say after the first glance is - impressive!

    I wonder if it can turn around in St Tropez harbour. Can it even enter Porto Cervo . Bonifacio ?

    Hmmmm

    To me this is so ridiculously large and exaggerated that it might as well be from a Disney or Spielberg movie.

    I cannot actually consider it real, in any practical sense.

    I don't have enough friends and relatives to have a good party on the boat.
