C Y Tung is, was maybe, a Taiwanese shipping magnate. Started Orient Overseas Container Lines. You see their boxes going down the road, "OOCL".
He commisioned a number of luxurious sea-going junks, probably in the seventies and no doubt Taiwan-built, and at least one of them was for sale in Chicago in the early eighties. As previously mentioned, speed under sail was not their strong suit.
