We have sail yacht Red Dragon in the bay at the moment and Wedge Too can be seen on the other webcam. Wedge Too is often seen in Monaco.
I've actually stood near megayacht Andromeda this year. She's huge! It had a lot of 'toys' on board. Mark Zuckerberg purchased it for $150 million at the Monaco Yacht Show in September 2017, a bargain considering it was listed originally at $195 million! Let's face it, it needs someone who earns serious money, as it costs $2 million dollars per month to run! When she was Ulysses she was very ugly, with an equally ugly tender, but since her refit, she looks really good, both inside and out.
if you want to see an explorer yacht with toys, check out 'Andromeda' (formerly called Ulysses- she has the Grey hull) and her almost identical big brother 'Ulysses' (Dark Blue Hull). both of these yachts were built for the same owner New Zealand Billionaire businessman Graeme Hart, although its rumoured Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook founder) now owns 'Andromeda'. they are built on an offshore ice classed supply vessel platform, so they can truly travel anywhere and everywhere. i can't post the links to the youtube videos on them on here (sorry)... but check them out. they're not to everyones taste.... but i LOVE them. i adore 'Le Grand Blu' too as it goes.
Morning all -- I must admit my new fascination is the Zambia cam at "Hippo Hide." So, I haven't been watching here much. I will check out Le Grand Blu and all her toys. You have to wonder if they need all these things to stay amused or just have them because they can :)
Coraline, I Googled Le Grand Bleu. She is really large. I wonder is she fits in the harbour of Cannone bay.
Lady S and Asya...Coroline, I've just looked at the photos of Le Grand Blu... that must be the first ime I've ever seen a yacht with a motor yacht, a sail yacht AND a helicopter on board! lol That's just showing off! lol She's a converted Explorer yacht, so I might forgive her. lol The official list of what she carries is as follows: "Her watercraft includes a 22 metre Dubois-designed sailing yacht, Bellatrix; a 21 metre Sunseeker motor yacht; two 11 metre, 60-knot Buzzi sports boats; and a landing craft to carry a 4x4 Land Rover used for excursions ashore".
6/23/2018 07:17Morning everyone. According to 'marine traffic' the 112 meter yacht 'LE GRAND BLEU' is heading into Portofino. This ship is so large it can carry a large sailboat & a speed boat (besides all the other things it would normally carry). Check out some of the pictures, just Google the name.
Lady S and Lady Nora

yacht 'Bella Vita' was previously know as 'Northern Star'. she has a sister ship 'Polar Star', that is identical in design but a bit smaller. both are expedition yachts are were built for the same owner by Lurssen, and have a very distinctive (and not to my taste) interior. both were also painted identically (white over blue). both yachts have since been sold, and 'Polar Star' has been repainted..... shame, as i liked the twin look.
Hi Dee & Shelly -- Bella Vita is a great name -- and it certainly is beautiful to look at. I wonder if those living in the area are immune to seeing such yachts.
What a stunning view. All those other bays in the background, blue sea and beautiful scenery. Wish I was there.
Hi Janey! *waves back* we have Bella Vita in the bay today.
