Fortunate Sun Joins Bikini Registered Motoryacht to List of Poolbeg Marina Visitors

#MotorYacht – The impressive 177 foot charter motoryacht M.Y. Fortunate Sun is paying a visit to Poolbeg Marina, Dublin Port and as previously reported she called last week to Cork City Marina, writes Jehan Ashmore.

Constructed with a steel-hull the 851 tonnes yacht has luxurious facilities for 10 guests accommodated in 7 suites and has a crew of 12 crew. The Poolbeg Yacht & Boat Club;s 100-berth marina has seen similar vessels moor along the outer pontoon, among them the 87 foot Bikini registered Cary Ali which could take 8 guests.

In addition the marina which caters for local yachts and pleasure craft also welcomes craft to attend events. Notably, the Old Gaffers Association's 50th Anniversary that was held in June.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
