Oh what a shame!
Couple of years ago a nameless individual came over from BVI for a spot of golfing in Scotland .He flew and his 100 plus foot superyacht was sailed-they blew out the genoa-a mere £30,000 to replace.Then the crew all jumped ship in UK!-hehe!
Last summer a superyacht arrived in Arisaig Bay-did they come ashore by tender or even speed boat-no by helicopter from the helicopter deck.
Do you know you can get your superyacht shipped anywhere in the world by "drive on" so to speak ferry!-you dock it and they then pump out the dock so it can be polished whilst on its way! There is a regular service from Europe to west Indies!
One of the Russian mega millionaires has a super motor yacht which carries on board a 30 plus foot power boat and a similar sized racing yacht!
Another recently purchased a forty something foot very fast power boat here on Loch Ness and had it flown to Siberia to use on one of the inland seas!
Recently the brother of the owner of the worlds longest super motor yacht built a bigger boat.His brother then had his lengthened to retain its number one status(thats where all the oil revenues go!)
It has to be said that the 100 plus foot sailing yacht was a beautiful looking boat-just a bigger version of your 30 or forty something foot boat with push button hydraulic winches;furling etc.
