Callisto and Siran in the shed for refit work, together with new build BN690 (44m or 144 ft). Project BN1006 will arrive

Video shot probably somewhere off the Greek or Turkish coast. As far as I know St. Princess Olga is only used privately,

and has never been chartered. The name of the yacht seems to suggest the owner is from Russia or Ukraine

Oceanco’s 88.5m (290 ft) megayacht Y710 on North Sea trails

17th of October 2014

Ship arrived an hour later than ETA indicated, therefore a limited amount of natural light. Total sea trails on this day lasted

about twelve hours. One of the standard procedures is going to top speed, then letting the engines idle until the ship comes

to a standstill, and then going to full speed again. This is done over and over again for hours on end.
