Plans were revealed for a new mega-yacht for the Queen of England and the British Royal Family. Codenamed FSP21 (Future Ship Project 21st Century), the 515-ft. vessel would be the third largest in the world, after those of Roman Abramovich and the ruler of Dubai.
The new yacht, which will have all the latest in technology and a plethora of ultra-luxury offerings, will cost $125 million financed from private and corporate sources. The yacht will be able to carry a helicopter, a miniature submarine, sailboat, two buses, bicycles, and an underwater laboratory to be used by the Royal Navy. Current design plans have the Windsor’s new vessel as a four masted square-rigged barque with solar capability and an auxiliary diesel electric power plant.
