Yesterday I had the pleasure to visit and see this beautiful ship, an Italian beauty from the Masarati factory. The couple/owners are living there full time, it is their home with plenty of space both inside and out on several decks. I learned that this is the biggest privately owned ship in Norway (several similar or larger ships are owned by Norwegian companies).
The man who you see doing some maintenance work on the boat (if you enlarge the photo), has been working as a captain for many years and had his own company too. Beautiful design, and I really liked all the woodwork, cherrytree etc. I wish the couple and their dog a safe and nice journey to Lisbon /Portugal, perhaps later in the summer.

Wow, living in style on the water.

What I like is that, even though very big, this boat is tasteful. Some show boats are so gaudy that they are embarrassing. This is wonderful.

'Tis a beautiful boat for sure! I've known several people here in Florida who lived on their boats. Most of them find it loses some attraction after a period of time...but some of those boats are absolutely gorgeous inside!
