Looks like "Highlander" (dark hull, Forbes yacht) out on the end.

Brian,

Mimi, Curt C (Curt Carlson's 118') and the 70' called Ostentatous all spent the summer of 2003 on the Croix. Those 3 took up the whole front dock at Port of Sunnyside. Mimi and Curt C were used several times a week to entertain. Mimi was for sale last year so they didn't have her up but I wouldn't be surprised if Anson Bell were to spend the summer up here this year. It's pretty wild seing something that big pass right by you as it goes through Kini or the hudson narrows!

Cool

This was by far one of my favorites in the 70' range. May not be what is considered a megayacht but it is a yacht in those standards. I have had the priviledge of spending alot of memorable times on this one. The Azimut 68 Plus.

Tatoosh was in Long Beach for awhile this summer and it is amazing to see in person. When I saw it there must have been a crew of 15 people running around tat I could see. There was a big sportsfisher tucked away on one side of the bow and a big blowbote on the other side... Nice toys..

My favorite model by the same manufacturer. The Leonardo by Azimut. It measures in the 95' range. These yachts are made in Italy. The one in the above post id the 68 Plus by Azimut.

Cool! I had no idea they where up there. Let me know if they are there again this summer. I may have to make a special trip up there to see them.

Paul Allen (along with Bill Gates) is a co founder of microsoft. He doesnt do MS anymore.....but owns a few of the seattle area sports teams. Plays with venture capital too.
