That thing really is a bit of a 'see what I can buy' white elephant. It's not particularly attractive, esp amongst the many gorgeous classics you find at the various Caribbean ports, and it's too tall for most any harbour bridge worldwide.

That is such an awesome boat. I seem to recall seeing Mirabella IV for sale recently. If I only had a spare $7M or so...

It's certainly a status symbol, but I disagree with your opinion. I think she's a beaut!

I was going to charter her for a week @ 300,000/week (2007). I called 300 of my friends and asked them if they would join me. Ok we had a plan - then I went back to the website and it said that the max number of guest was 14!!!!! OMG.

Mirabella V, Ltd. - Construction Diary

Sailing Yacht - Mirabella V - Vosper Thornycroft - Completed Superyachts on Superyacht Times .com

It was probalby good that the plan did not work I cant imagine calling a diesel truck to fill her up at $5 a gallon with twin 1066hp engines and 15,000 gallons fuel capacity. The asking price is 29,000,000 euros/50.000,000 US

Maltese Falcon

If you ever get the opportunity to read the book about the "Maltese Falcon" entitled "Mine's Bigger" its a real education. My wife purchased the book for me last fall and I couldn't put it down. The specifications of the craft are beyond belief and the cost was mind boggling.

Cheers,

Gary :cool:
