The Dreams that Money Can Buy

This gallery contains 4 photos. On a picturesquely beautiful Canada Day (July 1, 2011), we noticed that the private superyacht Attessa IV was anchored near Lonsdale Quay, which is both a popular tourist attraction and a farmer’s market that’s frequented by locals in North Vancouver. What’s not so visible is the original (and much smaller) Attessa, which is moored to the left.

Here is a closeup of the Attessa IV’s conning tower/bridge deck. This superyacht measures 330 feet in length, making it one of the largest superyachts in North America.

This closeup of the Attessa IV shows a chopper sitting on a helipad on the upper aft deck. It’s all part of the package, and no, the Attessa I doesn’t get one.

You can clearly see both superyachts here (Attessa I is the left, Attessa IV is to the right). Having both in harbour is like seeing celebrities in Vancouver (and celebrities were probably aboard these yachts fairly recently) … you get used to them very quickly.
