    Had a look out to the Anchorage today and two whitbread round the world boats appear.

    Is that "Giant" the ship on the right?

    Try a Superyacht instead.

    Yes "Giant" is a super yacht. She was a ship before her transformation, it is the reason why I call her a ship.

    Ex military ship from some northern european navy , converted to a private yacht. Strange beast.

    It was in the newspaper last week, police all over it, for engaging in some suspect activities.

    I don't think so, but it is difficult for me to find a similar photo.
