Atlantis II

The big yacht you see tied up to the digue is Atlantis II, owned by the Niarchos family of Greece. I'm told it's rarely used since the patriarch of the family, Stavros, died a few years ago. Atlantis II is a sister ship to the older Issham Al Baher, originally Atlantis, which Stavros Niarchos gave to King Fahd of Saudi Arabia. You can see another photograph of this yacht at THIS LINK.

Those rich Greece shipowners families has almost as bad tragedies as in Greece mythologie, hopefully people now in the yacht are happy.
I could spend one day in this ship or may be two :)
Have a nice autumn time or is there any autumn signs?

Since its not being used much, I wonder if they would mind if I took it for a spin around the pond?
