This thing turned up in Douglas Bay yesterday, sheltering from a storm that didn't happen. It is called Sailing Yacht A, owned by a Russian oligarch.

143m long, 12.6k tonnes. The masts are as high as Big Ben.

By comparison, the Isle of Man Steam Packet ferry is 125m and 12.7k tonnes.

IOM ferry cost £25m and they are about to spend £70m on a new one.

Sailing Ship A cost $460m.....

Zoom into this picture, taken by someone with a long lens. The guy on the mast gives an idea of the scale.
