Are you getting bored with your yacht?

post #1 of 78
Thread Starter 
Montana businessman Dennis Washington has his yacht, Attessa, sporting a new toy today. This 225 ft. beast (#69 largest in the world) has been in a slip in the harbour here all summer. I guess the yachting hasn't been that great with our miserable spotty summer weather so he's now got a new vehicle parked on top of the yacht...





I'd like to know if he has a personal sub dry docked in the hold.

That's the smallest helipad I've seen.

Malcolm Forbes's Highlander, which can be seen cruising the East River in NYC has a fake helicopter on it for show!

I don`t know anything about helicopters (or boats) but that looks like a tricky landing!

That can't be safe. I forsee that all ending in tears one night.

Wonder who makes that yacht... Azimut?

You aren't a real high roller until you have two helipads on your yacht.

How much does that Chevron charge for premium?

It is apparently cheaper than the other stations because they don't have to charge the road tax... so in Canada that is probably around $3 per gallon. Unfortunately the Attessa holds 35,000 gallons. The larger boats will sit docked, refueling, for hours.

How did Dennis Washington make his money?

Hoff: Judging by the location the pics were taken from, do you live in Coal Harbour? Pretty damn nice area there.

It is nice, yea.. especially the 62 days out of the year it isn't raining.

No wonder he is bored.

That really is a perilously-small helipad. Must be a hell of a chopper pilot to stick that landing. The canopy in front is an FAA hazard as well if it's less than 100 feet from the rotor. Why the f*ck do I know all this?

I much prefer Pelorus, owned by Roman Abramovich:

The cream colored hull is nice, the helipad is on the front.
