Danish Royal Yacht Dannebrog
« on: Aug 05, 2015, 10:00 PM »
The Danish Royal Yacht Danneborg is well over 80 years old, a working ship - in service and stunningly good looking!
Her stern and bow don't match, either.

Currently, a good cruise ship is parked alongside - and photos from this show her looking at her very best.
How much the contrasting situation must hurt our Royal Family.

QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

Beautiful looking condition. She arrived at Canary Wharf London on 26th July 2012 for the Olympic games.

Hi Isabelle,
She is, isn't she?! There are many more images both via google and elsewhere that show her from different angles as well as close-up.
Danneborg is Danish for the great Danish Flag :)
Although, it's perhaps no bad thing that HMY Britannia wasn't called Union Jack!

It's interesting too, to look at her bow, and bowsprit - then her stern - both are incredibly beautiful.
Do you / anyone know whether she is the only ship afloat / in service with this type of hull - ?

Yacht Nero which I saw in Kotor in 2011 is similar.
