I hope they dim their non-navigation lights at nighttime - and reduce their energy consumption by keeping non-essential energy use to a minimum.

Fill them fuel tanks and you would get a few "green shield" stamps eh!

Hell, I'd be more than happy with one of the two 27' sailboats onboard.
Forget the motor yacht.

I would have bought her but she only does 16 knots. :(

BTW Billy - I never thought I would log on to The Sun website!

Pleased to see that the Sun has got its finger on the pulse and hasn't grasped reality again. With fuel tanks big enough to travel for five years, a range of 15,000 miles and a speed of 16 knots, it doesn't add up.

As any fule kno, divide 15,000 by 16 gives you the steaming time, which in this case is 937.5 hours. Divide this by 24 gives the days of steaming for the range and hey presto! a range of 39.1 days.

Even the maddest tycoon will expect to use the yacht more than 7.8 days a year, the average he or she can use it if he wants his huge fuel tanks to last five years!
