While we are gawking at this yacht, others are googling. We hear it belongs to Bill Gates, to the Steve Jobs estate, to a wealthy Russian. The yacht looks brand new, and has a helicopter and at least 5 support boats attached to it. The support boat in the last picture looks pretty amazing in its own right. The yacht costs $250 million dollars, and $2 million per month just to operate it. Any takers?

i seem to recall seeing a big grey yacht identifiable only by hull number, in Antigua last year. in looking up the hull number on line it was one of bill gates first partners in Microsoft. not sure this is the same boar or not.

The helicopters tail number,identifies it as New Zealand registered,FWIW. Further Googling reveals it may be owned by New Zealander Graeme Hart.

I can see what appears to be a rather heavily built Bond villain leaning on the rail in the first image.

That any single individual should have enough money to own and operate such a thing is obscene beyond any hope of expressing.

Freudian slip?

Shame that with all that money, the owner still can't make the clouds go away.

Well that name did come up... could be. We never resolved who owned it. Thanks!

I'm sure this thing has mast silos, they just shoot up when the owner feels like sailing a bit
Thanks Jer

That's interesting ans something I would never have thought to check. Does the NZ registration mean the owner has to be a Kiwi, or live there?
Thanks!

Thanks PJ1, yeah I could see that. Interestingly, the majority of people we saw getting on were teens or younger. I think it was a birthday party. Thanks!

Not sure about the regulations,probably registered where the owner lives,or originated .Google Graeme Hart yacht,apparently he has at least three of this same boat.
