Renderings of Echo’s New Builds Released
Livery Merry-go-Round
Keel Laid for Colorado
The Greatest Travel Industry Advertising Campaign Ever?

Australian superyacht builder Echo Yachts, has reported that work on their two new build projects is on schedule and progressing well.

For the first time, the yard has released official renderings of both projects but still gives no confirmation to the well established rumour that the yacht and her shadow boat are for the owner of White Rabbit and will bear that name.

DFDS to Stena, Stena to DFDS, DFDS to Brittany Ferries, P&O to Stena: the changes can be bewildering.

Companies that are supposed to be arch competitors share and pass ships around as if they were all one big happy family.

On Saturday 7 March, the “keel” was “laid” in for the 15th boat of the Virginia Class, Colorado at General Dynamics Electric Boat facility at Quonset Point.

Perhaps...Certain pundits think that that might be the case.

Cunard Line’s “Getting There is Half the Fun!” series appeared in the early 1950s, when the company understood that air travel would soon attract business travellers and other passengers who needed to reach their destinations in a hurry.
