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 .
When it was built-in 2011, the boat was known as Harbour Island, it changed ownership and underwent a name change in 2012.
It is a 54.90m (180 ft ) luxury yacht which has a steel hull with an aluminium superstructure with a beam of 10.40m (34’1″ft) and a 2.90m (9’6″ft) draft.
Sovereign has a top speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots.
Sovereign has accommodation for up to 14 guests in 6 suites . She is also capable of carrying up to 7 crew on board.
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.
