Now the warmer weather has arrived, we are having a few more visitors into West India Dock and today we welcome the Super yacht  Sovereign.

We do not often have American built yachts visiting the docks, however the Sovereign was built by Newcastle Shipyards in Palm Coast, Florida .

As regular readers will know, finding who owns the ship and how long it will remain in West India Dock is very difficult. In the secretive world of Super yachts, perhaps not surprisingly they are very reticent to give out information.
