Anyone interested in Eddie Jordan's new little boat

http://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/news/10964375.VIDEO__Sunseeker___32million_yacht_for_Eddie_Jordan_r...;
Quote
SUNSEEKER’S largest ever yacht for Formula One mogul Eddie Jordan has been revealed this weekend at Poole Quay.
The 155 foot yacht, reported to be worth £32 million, was painstakingly moved out of the shed by Sunseeker staff on Saturday and took more than an hour to move the short distance into the yard.

Re: Anyone interested in Eddie Jordan's new little boat

That.... is NOT... a Yacht.... it is a Motor Boat... Or Motor Cruiser....
It has a Motor, as its Primary means of propulsion... It doesn`t even have sails as a secondary means of propulsion.
However.... it is probably BIGGER than this Naval Vessel.... doubtful if the Navy would call it a Yacht .....
but you can see a couple of Real Yachts in the background...

So Brittania wasn't a yacht?

Correct...  (partly)...   The Brittania, you are "probably" referring to  ,She is the second royal yacht to bear the name, the first being the famous racing cutter built for The Prince of Wales in 1893.

From Wikipedia.....
His Majesty's Yacht Britannia was a gaff-rigged cutter built in 1893 for Commodore Albert Edward, Prince of Wales. She served him and his son King George V with a long racing career.

It would not be very good to have your royals transported in... "Her Majesty`s Motor Vessel/Cruiser Brittania " ... would it !! ! .. got to stay with "tradition" !! !  !...

If calling a posh boat a yacht is OK for the Queen I can't see why you get upset if Eddie does the same!

From the article linked in the OP:

I do hope they drive carefully while they're having a good play, sorry, 'testing and commissioning'.
