    For Conscious Excavations, let me throw this comment out for discussion... This article, and particularly the beautiful pictures, give(s) me some consternation. Is it utopian, as the pictures might suggest, or is it dystopian? Think of the global warming to which the same oil barons who are building these floating castles have contributed so carelessly for all these years. No problem for the sheiks and kings of oil. If their coastal villas go under water, they's just pay engineers to build houses that float. It's kind of a 'gussied up' version of that Kevin Costner movie, Waterworld. On the other hand, maybe living closer to the most precious resource on our planet (the oceans) would have some osmotic effect on their environmental values. And, on a more positive note, it sure is cool to daydream about living on these floating homes (especially those which have underwater viewing areas)!

    PHIL FRIEDMAN and the PORT ROYAL GROUP APPOINTED PROJECT MANAGER and OWNER’S REPRESENTATIVE FOR 80-FOOT NEW BUILD IN TAIWAN

    December 24, 2015, Fort Lauderdale, FL – One-time Palmer Johnson Yachts President and CEO, Phil Friedman, announced that he and his firm, the Port Royal Group, has accepted appointment as Project Manager and Owner’s Representative in a the build of a semi-custom 80-foot long-distance offshore motor yacht..

    According to Friedman, his client is a Texas-based yachtsman who originally retained him to evaluate the feasibility of doing a new build in China. However, after the decision was made not to proceed there, the client asked Friedman to facilitate putting a deal together and to consult in the development of the General Specification and contract for undertaking the build in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

    Friedman and the Port Royal Group worked to develop a very complete General Specification for the project, which includes twin Caterpillar C-18 Acert 1,150 HP diesel main propulsion engines driving fixed-pitch propellers through straight shafts running in a SeaTorque enclosed shaft system. The CATs were chosen for their high torque production and ability to deliver that torque beginning at lower engine speeds right up through WOT.

    Up to date “green” equipment improvements include Smart Starts™ on the yacht’s A/C compressors. These reduce starting current demands by as much as 65%, enabling smaller Northern Lights generators to be installed than might otherwise be the case. And because the smaller generators are more efficiently sized for average running loads (which should be at 60% to 70% of total genset capacity), the result is cleaner fuel burn and elimination of smoking and coking.
