Not your average yacht

Out & About

If one hangs around down at the San Diego waterfront often enough, one is bound to see some interesting things and events. One thing that is always exciting to the masses is when one of the megayachts comes cruising through the harbor to dock at the megayacht dock near Seaport Village.

The Attessa IV often makes an appearance in the waters of San Diego. Looks like this:

It is one of the world’s great mega-yachts, measuring in at about 330 feet long. That’s thirty feet longer than a football field.

Attessa IV originally was built as the Evergreen in 1999, owned by Chang Yung-fa, chairman of the Evergreen Group of Taiwan. Dennis Washington, one of the world’s wealthiest individuals, bought the yacht in 2007. He had it completely renovated into what Attessa IV.

If moseying around the waters doesn’t get you there fast enough on this megayacht, Attessa IV has its own helicopter and helipad:

The helicopter is quite sleek in appearance. Notice the rear rotor. That type of cover is used by the military for noise abatement on their helicopters, so this is a modern, quiet helicopter.

Read more about the Attessa IV, and see pictures of the interior, at Boat International. Read more about Dennis Washington at Wikipedia.
