It was a wonderful hazy day in Isola Rossa yesterday and I decided to take my yacht to the beach, along with my helicopter because you just never know.
I do have a few other photos but the haze and super zoom turn the photo blurry. I’m going to post the photos anyway in hopes someone can tell me who this yacht belongs to.
In Picasa edit I cropped right into the hull and found some writing, but it is too distorted to read.
Even on a closer crop things get distorted. This is the best I can do.
Does anyone know who she belongs to? Curious minds are curious.
***UPDATE – This yacht is none other than the Le Grand Bleu. One of the largest private yachts in the world! Snap! She was seen floating on July 27-28 off the northwest coast of Sardinia. In the area of Isola Rossa.
“It was previously owned by John McCaw, Jr., an American businessman, who sold her to Russian businessman Roman Abramovich in 2002. Abramovich had it refitted to his own preferences by HDW in Kiel, Germany. This included an internal refit and the addition of a 16-foot (4.9 m) swim platform.
In June 2006, Abramovich gave Le Grand Bleu to its current owner, friend and business partner Eugene Shvidler.
Le Grand Bleu is powered by two 3,600 hp Wärtsilä engines. Details about the interiors are scanty as Abramovich is protective of his family’s privacy and highly security-conscious, but they were designed by Terence Disdale.“
“On 27 June 2012 Le Grand Bleu was lying off the Italian Riviera coastal fishing village of Portofino. On 19 July 2012 Le Grand Bleu was in Porto Cervo, Sardinia. On 21 July 2012 Le Gran Bleu was in front of wonderful Cala Luna near Cala Gonone, Sardinia, and 26 July 2012 in the Coral Riviera front of the walled town of Alghero still in Sardinia.”
Curious minds are curious no longer. Snap! Wow!
