Thalima, a beautiful 110' (33 meters) sailing cutter

Last week I posted 2 images of a Moon rise over Saint-Tropez (here)

I thought you might enjoy a few pics shot on that same day of Thalima, a beautiful 110’ (33 meters) sailing cutter…
Due to budget, all models are amateurs…

All shot with a Pentax K1 (to give some rest to the 645Z! ; )




Enjoying being on board

Thursty!

My goodness, Nicolas,



She is such a delight. Youth and a yacht and genuine French Champagne!





Champagne!​


I am moved, no I am in love!

On the foredeck​



The boat is leaning over to the right and she alone is balancing it. Now that is formidable!


Can we see the entire sail?

I see one can rent one with a crew of 5 and 8 guests! They even do Kosher food and can accommodate nudes on request!

Perfect.

I saw the price of $65,000 and thought that was a bargain, until I noted "plus expenses" so that was not to buy the boat, LOL. Assuming $15,000 for expenses, then the cost would be just $10,000 per person which is really not bad for this luxury!

Sorry, no, mast is to high to be shot from onboard, I would have needed to be on a chase boat or helicopter…
Would have then needed a second day of shooting, but the purpose of the assignment was only lifestyle on board…
You may "only" see the boat anchored, shot from a dinghy, note the size of the people on the aft…

Nicolas,

These are superb pictures, and just what I would expect if one has the good fortunate to live the dream of St Tropez. This is far better than the beach. There are cabins for resting and the wind and sun on deck and a crew of 5 to serve us.

I love all your work here. Where does one look, the table layout with the amazing fruit arrangement or the bustle and comraderie of folk around the table. It has a pulse ond verve. Exactly what any serious company would want to represent such a fine yacht.






Nicolas Claris:Breakfast








Nicolas Claris:Relax!





But I must choose this next one! It has it all.






Nicolas Claris: Ready for a nap under the sun




I picked this picture, as it shows the simple pastime of relaxing and leaving behind all the stresses of life. Make the expense of luxury worth every cent!

But you woke her up! Still she is lovely and you captures her beauty very well on the architectural setting of the deck.

Hi, Asher,



To our right, as we see it, looking sternward.



But perhaps not surprising for a woman of such manifest potency!

Best regards,

Doug
Well Doug and Asher, maybe that the 32,200 Kg/70,989 Lbs of ballast situated 4 meters below the water line help more that this light weight lady to stabilise the boat… :)
FYI the boat displacement (± weight is 77,700 Kg/171,299 Lbs)

Well, it never hurts to have gravity on one's side.

Especially when standing above the metacenter.

Nope, sorry, it was a one day shoot for "lifestyle" onboard only…
But I can sure you that it is large enough to have 4 people working there…
Well, I still have to sell half a kidney to get the $64,000 to rent the beautiful yacht for a family cruise! You can pay for the gasoline!

BTW, can the cabin be locked waterproof from the inside if the weather is very rough and one has to pull down the sails and tie them up tight?

Well then, the whole kidney (what's the difference?) and go for a 2 weeks charter!

This is a large yacht, only in hurricane you completely set the sails off and tied!
Of course the all boat is completely waterproof :)
