      Interesting and not too far fetched plans.
      German 1: Private Schnutz, I have bad news for you.
      German 2: Private? I am a general!
      German 1: That is the bad news.

          To be fair, Deirdre's conversion was doomed as soon as her ambitious new owner was killed in a Helicopter accident. After which she became a part of the provate process. Another asset that needed to be disposed of.
          Has it not happened mid conversion she may have made a fine yacht. Remember there are many ex warships of similar size that continued to serve far longer than their service in grey.

            I think they bit off more than they could ever chew with Deirdre.

            EX service vessels make fine research vessels etc but as a yacht, surely the expenditure of €10 million on a 37 year old well worn patrol vessel is excessive to the point of wasteful...unless you of course have a customer in the wings.
