See it between those ships?  It’s  . . .

 Utopia! And that’s within the dimensions of 207′ x 36′ and powered by 4 x MTU 16V 2000 M96L’s.

Well, Utopia IV, that is, the $50 million yacht of someone with the net worth . . . of Bob Dylan.  Back to that later, the owner’s previous yacht, as you can imagine was Utopia III.  

The IV is available to charter for a mere half million a week, chartered through Moran Yacht and Ship, which has no connections, that I know of, to Moran Towing.

The low-profile yacht is capable of 33 knots, with a range of 3600 nm.  At 30 knots, it can cover the 950 nm between Miami and New York in a day and a half, if my math is correct. 

Not visible here is the fold down transom that has a square footage greater than my Queens apartment!

All photos, WVD.

The Bob Dylan reference above . . . he sold his rights to his work recently for $300 million, said to be the net worth of JR Ridinger, owner of Utopia IV.  Maybe he came up for the fireworks?
