Americans look with amazement at the size and luxury of the ship, although difficult to surprise them.

Author: When I arrived at the venue, my view is such a picture is opened. The yacht was moored on the right side of Pier 90, and for its review was available only one place in 92 th. The rest of the territory of the terminal is closed by a fence and guarded. I have this kind of course did not accept, and I started looking for options.
One of them had a roof of Pier 92 which appears on Google was a car park. I went to study this option and immediately ran to the closed entrance and a sign informing that parking is not working. I tried to climb up the stairs, but the door leading to it was locked. And then I walked past the man, pressed a button, and in front of him suddenly opened wide the gates of the freight elevator. He went inside, and I decided that I will not get another chance and jumped after him. In the elevator, I learned from him that if I could get up, and whether it is possible to remove the ship from there. He said that he himself is in this regard and confidently pressed the button. The doors closed, the elevator was broken and buzzed. As we drove, I found out from him that he's not running, but from somewhere knows how to get inside, and that the main purpose of his visit is the men's room on the second floor, and he decided to take a picture of the boat at the same time. The doors opened and we found ourselves in a huge dark and empty room inside the pier, which, apparently, are registered and waiting to board a cruise ship passengers. A man immediately disappeared somewhere in the dark, and I went in search of a good place to shoot. It turned out that it is not. Remove anything that was not possible because of the dirty windows of the setting sun and the yacht and the batter directly into them. While I was thinking what to do, the man drew back and looking at the greasy glasses come exactly to the same conclusions that I did. Come after me! - He said, and we went upstairs for some idle escalators and premises. In the end, we went to the roof, where there were several cars in front of us and, at a glance, was the yacht Abramovich. A man took a few pictures to your smartphone, complained that she was not entirely fit into the frame, wished me luck and was gone. I stayed on the roof alone and began to take off.
For a start it seems to me that the word yacht's not quite right. When people come up with him, they did not know that it came to this. In naval circles in respect of such vessels use the word mega-yacht. And then really all mega:
Length - 162, 5 m
- Width - 21, 5 m
- The number of decks (December) - 9
- Displacement - 13 000 tonnes
- Engine - propeller shaft and 2 respectively. 2 screws
- Two thrusters
- Speed (cruising) - 22 knots
- Speed (max.) - The data range from 25 to 38 knots
- The hull: Steel; Superstructure: aluminum.
- The price of the boat (estimated Sunday Times) € 910 million.
In my shot when I got up on the contrary, it is also not entirely climbed.
As I studied the yacht, her stern started a movement.
