Anyone know who owns the huge yacht that is in the harbour?

I would like to say it is my next husbands yacht but I don't think present hubby would laugh ...;D

The Atessa was there last month. Maybe it still is. Gorgeous little "boat", isn't it?

My guess is Carlos Slim, one of the richest people in the world.

google Atessa, Dennis Washington is from Montana now VanCouver where the yaht is based. I believe he bought it in the middle east after a fire on the boat and had it towed to Vancouver to his shipyard and completly rebuilt it

It's the Attessa, Dennis Washington's yacht. They had to move it the other day as a U.S. Coast Guard ship is in port. The Attessa is usually here at least once a year, as well as Carlos Slim's yacht and also a large yacht of the owner of IUsacell.

I did a little surfing and discovered the Attessa in PV is 225ft long. In a few years we may see a new Attessa as the owner has purchased another yacht to be refurbished 302ft that will dwarf the one in PV
