This one showed up at the Palmer Johnson docks in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin about two weeks ago. The new tri-hull Super Sport series...think it's the 48M class...carbon fiber hull...yikes..

The "A" was anchored in Bellingham Bay today. A friend on our dock circled it on his way back in and checked it out. The shore boat he saw in the water beside it was some 30 feet long. One of the hull's "hangar" doors was open and he said it was full of toys-- jet skis, fishing boats, etc.

At a restaurant tonight we learned from our waitress that the Russian owner had flown into Bellingham airport today in his 747 biz jet and been helicoptered out to the boat, upon which the boat up-anchored and took off. I had intended to shoot some photos of it from our boat but when I went to do that the "A" was gone. So I had to settle for a shot off the web.

I actually quite like the design. With its reverse-raked stem it looks like a 21st century interpretation of a WWI battle cruiser.

"A" spent last summer here in New Zealand - mostly Auckland.

We had a storm come through with hurricane force winds and she rode it out at anchor in the centre of Auckland harbour - exposed to the easterly wind and 2-3 m waves.

I understand that this was at the request of the harbour-master, as he was concerned for the survival of the wharf to which she was tied up.
