    Well Carl said the fourth time.....is this the fifth time?...I read that she is there this time for repaint. I am not sure how true that is but untill i find out more well that is it. On the B+V site there is a nice shot of her inside the building shed.....here................>http://www.blohmvoss.com/

    click on Yachten or Yacht then when the page loads she is te sencond pic on the right hand side. I think every one knows what she looks like.
    On the main page B+V has the flash presentation showing her backing into the the building hall.:)

    Well, as most people should know by now, the Lady Moura came out of the shed at B+V freshly repainted and with a few additions such as sunshades on the Aftdecks. However, it is the repaint that looks most dazzling. For a yacht that was built by Blohm and Voss in the very early 90's she looks totally revitalized!

    Very sharp looking! It looks like they even took a step back on the mirror tint on all her glass as well... nicely done.

    Good observations, but this is air deflectors for the helicopter. They are made of heavy fabrics and it is just on the lower deck it is new. The one above has been there before and they are to prevent things on the decks from flying away when the big twin engine Sikorsky or other helis come in to land from the aft.

    Kevin: Yes it does look like they also re-tinted the glass as well.. for some reason, it has a nice sparkle and reflection to it.

    AMG: Yes i know about the shade on the upper aft deck. It is indeed the lower one that has been added. However, i did not realize that they are being used as wind deflectors. I assume their purpose is two fold then. As sunshades and the deflectors of the helo rotor wash. It makes sense though. Seriously though they look just to be sunshades. I guess this is good though. Like this, they wouldn't stand out (It is well incorporated)
