Photo: A brace of yachts

Posted: Monday, August 04, 2003

The 354-foot luxury yacht Le Grand Bleu lies at anchor next to the tall ship Concordia on Sunday in Gastineau Channel. Though the crew were mum about the yacht's origins and ownership, the online publication Power and Motoryacht listed the vessel as owned until recently by Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft. Online Radio Free Europe cited the Russian newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda as stating the ship was bought in July by billionaire Roman Abramovich, one of post-Cold-War Russia's wealthiest and most powerful oligarchs.
