This beast of a yacht sailed up the Thames today - a very impressive sight.

Apparently it's owned by Alberto Bailleres - the second richest man in Mexico (it would appear that not everyone is suffering due to the credit crunch).

For those that would like to check it out, it's currently parked up next to HMS Belfast.

Good grief, that's a yacht?!?

I noticed it when I passed over Tower Bridge today and it's as tall as the Belfast! I thought it was a small cruise liner.

I saw it motor past Canary Wharf yesterday along with a large tug to help dock it. I wondered who's it was - hope it hasn't got any swine flu on board!

It left yesterday (Thursday) at about 5.30pm.

I'm not normally impressed by expensive toys, but it IS big, isn't it?
