The two Super Yacht in West India Dock, Sovereign and WindQuest were yesterday afternoon joined by a third Kalinga.
Although quite old , launched in 1982, Kalinga was built at the famous Dutch shipyard Feadship.
Kalinga is a 53.70m yacht with a steel hull with a aluminium superstructure with a beam of 8.80m (28’10″ft) and a 3.00m (9’10″ft) draft .
She has a cruising speed of 15.00 knots, max speed of 16.00 knots and a range of 4000.00 nm. from her 72,000.00l. fuel tanks.
Kalinga has accommodation for up to 12 guests in 6 suits comprising 1 owner cabin, 2 double cabins.
It appears that the ship has been used for charter in recent years and we have no information how long the ship will be in West India Dock.
Just to prove that the dock is not just for Super yachts , at the end of the dock is the historic ships Massey Shaw and the Portwey. Also moored nearby is the training ship Lord Amory.
A very tidy crew
