Hauling mega sailboats down at the ‘yard

Lucy and I – well only me, really as she patiently waited while I watched – had a treat of a show whilst walking through Front Street Shipyard on our way home. They were in the process of hauling out a Hong Kong registered mega sailboat called Silver Linings. I looked it up on line and see that it’s 103 feet (31.40m) built in 2011 in Thailand’s Phithak yard, and was recently listed at €4,600,000!!! What a wonderful thing the shipyard is for Belfast!
