It's not often we get a mega yacht (a private boat above 70m or 230 feet) in Dublin bay. The Skat is currently lying on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay. Click HERE and have a look at the images at the bottom of the page.
According to Wikipedia The Skat is a luxury yacht built by Lürssen of Bremen, Germany as project 9906, a number prominently displayed on the hull in a font matching that of military vessels. The project started in November 1999 and the yacht launched in 2001. The owner is Charles Simonyi, a former Software Engineer from Microsoft and the fifth space tourist. The yacht is the 64th-largest in the world with a length of 71 metres.
