OK, I know its a boat

It was on its way towards Devonport at Plymouth on Saturday.

I never seen this type of boat in plymouth before and was just curious as to what it is.

RIBase
saw that coming in yesterday aswell. Just been out on a boat trip today cause my RIBs at home .

Apparently it was a 80million 21st birthday present!!! (Owner unknown). It was finished last year, but there was a fire in the engine room on its maiden voyage. They did mention the builder in the commentry, but I cant remember who it was.

DML do build Super yachts. I'd imagine they knocked it up. ' Parked' mine in Port Pendennis last weekend, on the opposite side of the pontoon were 3 100ft+ superyachts. One was Eric Clapton's, another belonged to a German owner and had just had a re-fit in Pendennis Yard, the 3rd was 'Kiring' which belongs to Abramovich's right hand man.'Kiring' tows a 7.5m Ribcraft with twin 100hp Yams. According to the Skipper they've almost lost it twice.

Here's 'Kiring'

Talking of Lovely Boats I saw the Waverly paddle steamer go past Hythe when I was on the ferry to the boat show . It looked fantastic . Is she basd up that way .
I ended up going to Scilly on it once in a fairly lumpy sea . The Scilonian must have been in for a service or something . It was much better into a rolling
sea than the Scilonian and I don't remember half as many sick bags being used .

The Waverly is stunning - especially the open engine room where you can watch steam in action. She's suprisingly quick as well.
