The 236-foot super yacht Albatross sailed to Dakota Creek on Monday afternoon from the builder, Delta Marine of Seattle, and was immediately lifted into the boatyard on a synchrolift for what could be just a day or two of work.
We shot these photos at about 7pm Monday evening after hearing from a tipster. Because the boat is on the Guemes Channel side of other boats, it was tough getting any photos at all from the land. Here the Sally Ride is in the foreground, the Alaskan Leader in the middle and, in the distance is the Albatross.
Little is known about this secretive project, rumored to be worth as much as $80 million. The Albatross includes a helicopter landing pad and a tender garage.
According to Super Yacht Times, the boat was originally moved to Dakota Creek in September for launching with a synchrolift, then towed back to Delta Marine to be fully outfitted.
