Here are all the previous installments of this title, going back to 2007.

Yesterday I caught one of these megayachts heading inbound in the Ambrose Channel.  Without the zoom, it looked even bigger, even sci-fi . . .  It was Lady Lara.

And big it is, compared with the Moran 6000hp tugboat. . . . maybe Jonathan C. Moran.  Let’s do a tale of the tape:  Lady Lara:  299’loa x 49′ x 13’draft.  She powered by two MTU 16V4000s that generate a total of 5178hp.  I’m not sure what else is in the engine room.  Jonathan C. Moran:  89′ x 38′ x ? draft.  She’s powered by two EMD ME 12G7-T3s that generate 6000hp.

Lady Lara entered the Narrows after overtaking Cosco Shipping Rose.

Simplified tale of the tape:  Lady Lara:  299’loa x 49′ x 13’draft, 5178hp.  Cosco Shipping Rose:  1201’loa x 157′, 65254hp!

 

Rose departed Shanghai on May 13.

All photos, WVD, who would love to know the particulars of the ULCV engine that generates that 65000hp.

The yacht owner is Alex Mashkevitch.
