Yea, that seems very likely.

And now there is a mega huge yacht, just behind La Fortaleza. It's not mine!

It’s called Rising Sun, and unless you are Larry Ellison in disguise, no it’s not !

Seems like it is now owned by David Geffen founder of Asylum Records and Dreamworks.

Default Able One

Able One of Whitby has been anchored to the east of La Fortaleza for the past few days.

She is a new build by Parkol Marine of Whitby, based on the design of a class of American Naval tug from the 1940's. There is accommodation for 6 and is listed as a 'pleasure craft'.

Internet talk suggests she is owned by a local (successful, obviously) Hartlepool/Hull businessman. I think the clue here is in the name of the tug.

Photos can be seen on Marine Traffic.
