The 92nd largest yacht in the world cruised into Bristol’s Floating Harbour today. The 73.55m super yacht Mogambo (click here for its rivals in the top-100), registered in George Town in the Cayman Islands, was only launched in Germany in October last year and is in its first month as a private charter.

According to Malcolm MacLean from Boat International, who knows more about these matters than I, “Mogambo accommodates up to 12 guests with a spectacular master suite on the main deck which includes a private terrace, a VIP cabin on the bridge deck plus two double and two convertible cabins on the lower deck.

“Designed by Reymond Langton, her sleek and contemporary interior is a blend of sophistication and extravagance which is certain to please even the most discerning guest.

“The sun deck features an air conditioned gym and spa pool and on the lower deck, the beach club with sauna, steam room, massage room and rain shower all open onto the swim platform.

“Mogambo features Quantum zero speed stabilisers and is capable of a remarkably smooth and quiet 17.5 knots.”

The super yacht – perhaps named after the 1953 film starring screen icons Clark Gable, Grace Kelly and Ava Gardner – will remain in Bristol for at least two weeks before sailing to the Mediterranean with its 19 crew and mystery passengers.

Photos do not do her justice, but even her gargantuan size pails into insignificance compared to the world’s largest yacht, the Eclipse, also built in Germany and finished in 2010, with a 16m swimming pool whose base can be raised to transform the area into a dance floor, and space for three helicopters, one on each of the two helipads and the third in a storage hangar below the fore deck.

  1. Oh to be fantastically rich!

  2. I don’t know if I really welcome it. It’s just a big, vulgar boat. I’d probably rather if it never came to Bristol, to be honest.

    What a ridiculous comment

  4. Dave M says:

    I’m surprised their isn’t a Tesco or Starbucks on board!!!! lol they seem to be everywhere else….

  5. Wow, this is really exciting; what a beautiful superyacht – hard to believe that it’s moored in Bristol. I wonder who the mystery passengers will be??? I will have to take a peak at Mogambo.

    Usually we have to travel much further afield to witness superyachts in action.

    This is hideous. What a waste of wealth and resources just for 12 people!!!
    I would probably be more forgiving if it was a more interesting design. But it’s so ugly.
    Do you think they’ll open it up as a space for a cheap nursery?

  7. Ah, THAT’S where I left her…

    Yeah – fantastic…..Maybe it belongs to a hedge fund manager who rakes in hundreds of billions of previously non-existent debt money; creates instability in the casino financial market and bankster sectors, gets the governments to get the sheeple taxpayers to bail out the “too big to fail banks”, with not so much as a whimper of dissent…Because you’re all too busy drooling over a big shiny boat…”Mogambo accommodates up to 12 guests with a spectacular master suite on the main deck which includes a private terrace,”…wow..Copy and paste churnalism at its best…The irony is, if we returned banking to simple lending of what they have, at simple interest, abolish fractional reserve lending (creating debt laid onto YOU and your country out of thin air, with compound interest added); return the power to issue money to the government, with an elected and accountable inflation control board….The sooner the trillions falsely owed to the plutocrats, will be available as value money, not debt money, to stimulate a truly beneficial capitalist, not cartelis economy…Check out Money As Debt and The Money Masters….

      A hedge fund manager or lowly banker could not afford a yacht like that and much to the general publics disappointment they’re rarely onwed by celebs. They belong to the movers and shakers of the world – people that noone heard about – they are so wealthy they can buy silence and anonymity.

    @mogambo – Yawn away….the time of the banksters and casino sepculator spivs is coming to an end..Watch The Money Masters and wake up….@yachtgirl – wouldn’t be so sure….someone like George Soros pockets $400 billion a year…I’ll leave you with these quotes: “Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of Bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits.” Sir Josiah Stamp (1880-1941) President of the Bank of England in the 1920′s, the second richest man in Britain…Or, more recently, Matt Taibbi in Rolling Stone magazine described Goldman Sachs as “a vampire squid wrapped round the face of humanity”. Or, how about this: “I am afraid that the ordinary citizen will not like to be told that the banks can, and do, create and destroy money. The amount of money in existence varies only with the action of the banks in increasing or decreasing deposits and bank purchases. Every loan, overdraft or bank purchase creates a deposit, and every repayment or bank sale destroys a deposit… And they who control the credit of a nation, direct the policy of Governments and hold in the hollow of their hands the destiny of the people…” Reginald McKenna; former Chancellor of the Exchequer, addressing the shareholders as Chairman of the Midland Bank, at the Annual General Meeting…Yawn, indeed….

    High street banks create money as debt, out of thin air, through the borrower’s promise to repay the loan as soon as the loan is countersigned….interest is added to this…Hence….in reality, the high street banks are effectively legalized counterfeitters, creating debt money out of thin air, above and beyond “loaning” out any debt money they created out of thin air, borrowed from the central bank, through quantitative easing, which erodes the value of pension funds…. This is all made possible by bank charters – “By the privilege of the corporate bank charter of the bank – the borrower’s pledge of debt becomes our money to lend”…The politicians are in the pockets of the bankers…The mainstream media is controlled by banking interests (Rothscild own controlling shares in AP and Reuters – source of most press releases for mainstream print and online media…So they will not report the truth about the debt money system….One man who does tell the truth is Max Keiser, Wall Street stockbroker turned whistle blower…..Essentially, money used to represent value…now it represents debt…The quantitative easing is an injection of funds from the central bank to shore up the debt money system and help prevent runs on the high street banks…Total amount of money in a debt money system economy corresponds to the total amount of debt “money” created (plus the inherently worthless prommissory note, physical fiat (legal tender) notes and coins…If everyone paid off all their debt the system would collapse…

    The trillions spent on illegal wars of aggression against sovereign nations in the Developing World should discontinue; citizens should be informed of the fact that when our birth is registered, a Strawman Identity is created, as described in Black’s Law Dictionary and under Uniform Commercial Code, without our or our parents’ knowledge or consent, simply in order to create a commercial shadow identity (under Fleet/commercial law precepts) turning us all effectively into indentured tax/debt money system slaves; see Darren Deojee (also see Meet Your Strawman – Also check out former US Staet department senior official Kath Austin-Fitts blowing the whistle on $12 trillion in US taxpayers money – TWELVE TRILLION – that has been siphoned off into the bankster/corporatocracy coffers in the past 20 years: ; for the banking elite’s decades-long stealthy global Financial Coup d’Etat, and how the banksters and the military industrial complex are asset-stripping public assets and services and taxes and diverting tem into their own pockets, while pulling the strings of puppet governments globally to use genuine benefit seekers, the disabled, the pensioners and minorities as scapegoats to attack with savage austerity cuts while simultaneously asset-stripping working class and middle class workers, small businesses and savers; and even entire nations…Uniform Commercial Code; Strawman Identity;Admiralty/commercial law; fiat “money”; debt; contracts; signature as an instrument of value etc.. ; Some will dismiss this as tin foil hat stuff….Too bad for you….it’s fact…it’s what the banksters and derivatives speculators are doing….They always want more money; the debt money system demands it….You might think you’re not affected…Hey…they’ll take yours next….Better believe it.

    The weblinks for Money As Debt – and The Money Masters – and Zeitgeist Addendum These documentaries should be broadcast on BBC and Sky, and in schools and colleges and universities..If you can spare 30 minutes every evening to watch Corrie you can spare some time to get yourself educated…If we are living in a truly democratic society with genuine freedom of speech, and if these views are “crazy”, as the banking elite and the mainstream financial “experts” will have you believe…what have they got to lose in broadcasting these programmes….The fact is, they know that lack of knowledge of the debt money system among the general populace is what helps keep the plutocrats and the military/corporate/big pharma/industrial/banking complex in riches amounting to trillions, while patting you on the head and telling you “Well done”, after you spent 60 years of your life scrimping and saving to pay off your mortgage, only to then give it all up again to pay for care home costs or to see your savings eroded by bank bailouts and quantitaive easing….Wake up…I thank the moderators on this page for allwoing these comments to be published…Kudos to you and best wishes….Peace.

    The Control Council which was given the task of preparing directives for the arrest and detention of war criminals, moved into Germany after the war. It was headed by the Council on Foreign Relations. Professor Sutton observed, “At the end of World War II, Wall Street moved into Germany through the Control Council to protect their old cartel friends and limit the extent to which the denazification fervor would damage old business relationships.” He said, “General Lucius Clay, the deputy military governor for Germany, appointed … Banker William Draper [to] … put his control team together from businessmen who had represented American business in pre-war Germany.”

    “None of the Americans were ever prosecuted,” wrote Perloff. “The story of American ties to German fascism has been avoided like the plaque by the major U.S. media.” Professor Sutton declared, “After World War II the Tribunals set up to investigate Nazi war criminals were careful to censor any materials regarding Western assistance to Hitler.”

    “[At] the very core of Nazism,” says Professor Sutton, we “find Wall Street, including Standard Oil of New Jersey and I.T.T., represented … [up] to as late as 1944.” Referring to Wall Street’s role in funding the Nazis as being one part of a consolidation plan for world domination, he concludes, “This interplay of ideas and cooperation … was only one facet of a vast and ambitious system of cooperation and international alliance for world control.”

    The professor quotes an Establishment insider; Georgetown professor Dr. Carroll Quigley, as saying that it was “nothing less than to create a world system of financial control, in private hands, able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.”

    I appreciate that some people might find this subject and these revelations upsetting and distressing – but we are dealing with the truth here…and the people studying history; and certainly the people of Bath who lived through; suffered and lost loved ones in World War 2, deserve to know the truth…

    And the truth is that the banking elite of Wall Street (and I suspect, the City of London Corporation) must be held responsible for facilitating and profitting from the carnage and destrction of World War 2 through bankrolling Nazi Germany….Always ask – cui bono? Who benefits? The banking elite and military industrial complex profited and benefited to an obscene extent.

    Thank you for reading….and, to the moderator, thank you for publishing…

    By the way – why doesn’t the owner of the yacht go public…Even if the owner isn’t a casino banking high roller, all the points above stand as fact.
