We Arrived in San Diego…

…the same evening this beauty arrived on it’s maiden voyage!

SAN DIEGO – A colossal yacht was seen cruising in San Diego Bay Wednesday evening.

The 330-foot mega-yacht Attessa 4 stopped by San Diego during its maiden voyage.

The owner, industrialist Dennis Washington, had the boat custom built to his exact specifications. Washington’s net worth is about $4 billion, according to Forbes, and the Attessa 4 has everything a discerning billionaire might want.

The ship boasts a helicopter, a speed boat, pool, hot tub, movie theater, a fully operating day spa and much more.

Forbes estimated the price tag for the nautical masterpiece at $250 million. Large as it is, the Atessa 4 doesn’t make the list of the world’s top 10 mega-yachts, all of which are more than 400 feet long.

Here’s some interesting information about the owner of the yacht.

The fun little side note to us arriving the same time the Atessa 4 arrived is knowing that a friend of ours worked on this Yacht while it was docked in British Columbia. We listened with interest on his account of his time on this yacht and it was fun to put two and two together to realize that this was the very same yacht we heard about a year before…

I was so happy to have an “off” day on Wednesday. Life is really full around here. Just the chance to hang around in my robe as long as I want in the morning is a nice respite for me. What do you like to do on your “off” days?

  1. I’ll have to watch the harbour for that beauty!
    When I have an ‘off’ day I stay in my robe as long as possible. I make a pot of coffee, heat the cup and settle in to read the newspaper, and maybe do the cross word. Lately, there has been so much to do that it has been difficult to have a guilt-free day off. That is just sad!

  2. Wonder if Mr. Washington is single? Wonder if he’d like to meet my single daughter?

    Wonder if he would like to adopt Bernie and me?

  3. WOW –What a yacht! It seems opulence is the way of the extreme wealthy.

    Day off? I haven’t had one in a long time as my days have been a mixture of happy and sad. I’m happily doing last minute wedding plans fr my daughter and sadly going through my Mother’s belongings to donate what I can and discard the rest.

  4. Great pictures, Ellen. I’ll get H to send you a couple of his pictures for you to compare. BTW that yacht has 2 helicopter landing pads and room for 2 30 ft. run-abouts if I remember right.
