Mirabella V

VT Shipbuilding (formerly Vosper Thornycroft) recently launched Mirabella V, which at 246 feet, is the world’s biggest single masted yacht. It is also the biggest composite ship ever built, and will be used as a charter vessel, operating mainly in the Mediterranean and Caribbean when she enters service early in 2004. Charter costs will be some $250,000 a week. (story courtesy of
