  • Mega Yacht, Corvette or a Bit of Both?
    Posted by Christina Mackenzie 2:09 PM on Oct 29, 2008

    What is this strange hybrid: the newest in the French trend to combine civilian comforts aboard naval ships (and I couldn't fit the back of the model in the photo but there is a waterfall pool from one deck to the next)?.

    Sadly not. It is in fact just the model displayed by German shipbuilder Lürssen Werft GmbH & Co. at Euronaval to demonstrate that they not only build fast patrol boats, corvettes, frigates, OPVs, mine hunters and support vessels but also mega yachts. Mind you, perhaps mega yacht owners might like to combine a little military might to protect their toy!
