Read a mag article on Roman's yachts - they claimed they would do 46kts!!! I would say Grand Blue would top 22 at most.

That Triton may be slow but look at the range - it has 2x 1000hp engines - not bad when you think a 75ft sunseeker has the same - mind you even though it is an economical displacement hull it still uses 3gallons per mile!!!

And under the bridge, a pair of Scorpion ribs ??
The transom opened up as a garage, for more toys,
Far the Dartmouth pontoon,she almost wiped out the view of Kingswear !!
was told by the dockie, his bill was near £3k for berthing for 3 nights !!!

No chopper though, but be slumming it !!
AFAIK he has now upgraded the tender to a Sunseeker Predator 68
There is at least one (second hand!) Scorpion on board too

I occasionally have a sub on my boat - when I get a chance to stop at Quizno's on the way to the lake.

this is the speedy one (Ecstasea), note the central waterjet/gas turbine: http://www.roman-abramovich.com/ecst...abramovich.htm

He doesn't own le grand bleu any more - gave it to a friend as a present last year.

One of my best friends is Cpt of this one. Only a small one in comparison but amazing to be onboard. I expected it to be tacky but quite the opposite, spends the summer between St Tropez and Monaco drinking and keeping its owner smiling Nice life for a 38 year old guy!!
