The Port of Cork has advised of traffic delays on Cork’s city quays with the pending arrival of what’s being described as the world’s largest private yacht in the city this morning (Wednesday 12 June).

Le Grand Bleu arrived in Cork Harbour earlier this week as did fellow superyacht AIR, no stranger to the area.

Once owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, the 113-metre Le Grand Bleu has been in the possession of his friend and fellow oil business mogul Eugene Shvidler since 2006.

The Bermuda-flagged vessel is so sizeable that it even has room to carry two other boats on their own cranes: a 22-metre sailboat and a 21-metre powerboat.
