Helicopter + Yacht = Awesome

02 January 2009

The crew of M/Y Ilona prepare the on-board helicopter for flight.
When not is use, the Eurocopter AS355 is lowered beneath the deck and stored in the stern via a hydraulic lift.

See a video of the process over here.

Whoa, awesome is right. Stored in the stern?!? Seems only possible in the movies.

The video was pretty wild. I still think it's space best used for fishing gear. Just think... You could have a deck pop up with fighting chairs, bait tank, built in tackle boxes and rod racks full of pre-rigged rods for all occasions. At night it could be a dance floor.
