â€œFOREVER\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" is probably the most classic example of a historic motor-yacht that the designer was referring to, as her pedigree is impeccable. She was built in 1892 for King Leopold of Belgium according to the design of the Dutch naval architects \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"De Vries Lentsch\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\". When Queen Juliana o the Netherlands commissioned her Royal Yacht, the \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Piet Hein\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" from the same designer, \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Forever\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" was used as the model. Because she so perfectly epitomized the dream of that graceful era, film and television makers have used her over years. Brigitte Bardot fell in love with her and Salvador Dali soon discovered that her gracious on board ambience provided that special inspiration for him to paint. Although she was designed and built in those far off days of Kings and empires, a time when things were crafted and built to last, she is by no means lacking \\\\\\\\r\\\\\\\\nin todaysâ€™ facilities and comfort. Over the years, \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Forever\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" has been constantly maintained to the highest standards and has been discreetly upgraded. In the late eighties she spent a considerable period in the \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Vatasa\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" shipyard where she was compl tely restored to the finest detail. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Forever\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" is not just a historic vessel for sitting in a port to look pretty. She is a very capable blue water yacht with an impressive cruising range. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Forever\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" is ready to go on turning heads for the next hundred years... She is truly timeless vessel from a bygone era.
