Now this is interesting.

The Le Grand Blue wiki page now only has the photo - all that data was removed. Apparently today. The ship headed up the East River this morning. And I don't see it on the harbor website either.....

Conspiracy? Russian mafia? Probably not but really strange.

I have never seen that website before.
I got the name off the Le Grand Blue using my spyglass. What? Don’t all of you go around town with your spyglasses?

Okay JerseyCityFrankie - where do you get a good spyglass - and how do you know it's a good one? I just have Nikon binoculars - a spyglass would be fun.

Just curious, how did you know the answer?

Here is a music video to get you in the mood for life on a big luxury yacht. NSFW.

Also, I am not yacht expert, but 2 of the biggest yachts I have ever seen are parked right in the Newport Marina right across from the Westin. These things aren't as big as that blue one, but they are some big-ass boats. I was checking them out today.

Wow, thanks for the education. I cruised right past Le Grand Bleu on the water yesterday, and we were all wondering what it was!! Cool!

Aside from Le Grand Bleu, there are a bunch of visiting significant ships in the harbor. There is a huge tall ship event going on in Boston and we are getting some of the spill over. The replica of the H.M.S. Bounty, built for the Marlon Brando movie, is near Chelsea piers and just today I saw a large three masted Barque anchor somewhere near Erie Basin in Brooklyn.
The tall ships wont visit New York officially since the city no longer really has the waterfront facilities these ships need to tie up to. There are fewer and fewer places that the local municipalities control that have enough room and/or water and electric outlets pierside. The trend for the last several years has been for condominium development. It’s true the waterfront gets a nice makeover when developers go to work, but they never provide the basic necessities a ship requires to tie up at the waters edge, not even the large metal bollards or bitts the ships need to make off their dock lines.

There is a good sized ship (not pleasure boat) just off of the harbor at LSC that has been there for at least a week. Blue with white superstructure, I think. Anyone know what it is? Just curious.
