Exterior of Addison on Amelia

There is another of Christensen Shipyard’s motor yachts in our marina this week.  A few months ago I wrote about the Casino Royale, a private yacht that is decorated in the James Bond theme. 

The yacht currently tied up to our marina is the VF-15, formerly known as the Primadonna.  The boat (ship?) was built in Vancouver, Washington in 2009 and is currently registered in George Town in the Cayman Islands.

The Vf-15 is about 5 feet shorter than the Casino Royale but is still pretty impressive.  The 160 foot ship has one master suite, a VIP suite and 4 guest rooms along with quarters for the crew.  I counted 5 crew wiping and washing the boat yesterday.  Add a Captain, a Mate, a chef and a personal trainer and the staff headcount climbs pretty quickly.

Even their tender (I think it is too big to be called a dinghy) is nice with room for 10, a center console and everything spotless.

This boat is bigger than anything I’ll ever sail. I don’t think I’ll ever own a boat this grand but I sure would like to have a friend who owns one.  Margaritas in the afternoon on the aft-deck.  Skeet shooting at daybreak.  Cruising along the coastline of some far-off land.  Not having to pay for the gas…..
