    Hi,

    That is a good find.

    I actually know someone who has looked at it for a client since I was there, he said it was not bad for a commercial hull. Dunno what went on after his report went to the client, if that photo is recent I would guess not much.

    The Fjord where it was built will soon be solid with ice and look quite different to how that photo shows it.

    The 9th September is pretty recent.

    That looks really good though, the design. It is one thing to see it in rendering but another to see a real photo of the real yacht. it's sad how it's ended up!

    She has been listed with ***** as being for sale. I found out some more details (I'm not sure about the credibility of the source so take it with a grain of salt) regarding the completion of the vessel. She is asking €95 million to finish with €15 of that being appropriated to the interior. In addition, there is another €1-1.85 million charge on top of that for the completion of the helicopter hanger, submarine garage, elevators, etc. There was another option listed for €85 million under which the buyer will take the completed hull and have it taken to another location for the interior and paint work.

    PJ "World" was towed to Vigo/Spain where she has been moored since October 2. There is speculation that she will finally be finished there by one of the local shipyards (Armon? Freire?)

    Just prior to Mike Kelsey's passing he sent me an email inquiring on the status of the World project. At the time, PJ was shut down, Mike was battling cancer and he was far removed from the World (pun intended). I suggested he post to the forums. This was his response...

    So, I'm late to this party but have some rookie questions; There is over 13 year old machinery and systems built into this hull.
    Technology has folded over countless times since it was bolted in.
    Who has been taking care of it? Covered in rust like the rest of the boat? Any of it going to work?
    Should this hulk just be cleaned up and donated for reef material or cashed out and scrapped?

    Before the popcorn starts flying, These are real questions.

    Recycle that gal, our oceans don't need more rusting junk.

    This just happened with an older unfinished hull: Victorious.

    You mean it was completed, not scraped after 14 + years.
    I guess they go so cheap for the next owner to feel secure taking the final plunge (gamble).

    I wish I could fine some of these folks to throw some money at my incomplete (very old) projects..
