Pfft, call that a boat?

Went out this evening and some oik had parked their yacht in the middle of my favourite sailing grounds


The Attessa IV, largest superyacht to be launched in North America fresh from her extensive refit, all 330ft of her! Have to say she is a pretty impressive tub, we contemplated hoisted the Jolly Roger and taking her
Phoned the Admiral and got her to walk down to the waterfront to take some photos of my own superyacht playing with this "slightly" larger one.

Shame my outhaul let go around this time and stopped me flattening the main, the wind went from 2knots to 18 knots in a couple of minutes so it got kind of interesting all of a sudden, I had also just been about to swap out the 130 for the 150, glad I didn't.

Ah, to be rich enough to waste money on something like that! She's a beautiful mega-yacht (for one that doesn't sail) but I don't want to imagine the cost to fuel her trips let alone buy it!

Thanks for the image, Paul, even if you didn't get the flattened main for the shot

Rather be on your sailboat

I'd rather be on the S/V Tangerine. The wind, no noise, no big power plant running to keep all the systems going, no crew, no pretense, just sailing.

Bet I'm not the only one who feels this way

Wasn't that in Marina Del Rey a few weeks ago? It's the boat owned by the Mexican Media Baron Carlos Slim?

I don't know if it was in Marina Del Rey, but I believe she's owned by Dennis Washington.

Haha, on my 5th look I've just noticed the helicopter, even more of a size perspective!

Just think on how big that hole in the water is when the owner has to pour tons of money into it.

Saw this yacht anchored in San Diego Bay when I has staying at the Hilton on Harbor Island a year or so ago. The helicopter coming in to land on the deck really caught my eye.

My niece's husband has a Marquis 720 Tri Deck and I asked how much it cost to fill up the tanks and his reply was "a little to the north of 6 grand". Wow, imagine what that yacht's fuel bill would be! And by the way, who is Dennis Washington? I've heard of Carlos Slim, but not him.
