Rare sight of Kingdom 5KR off Monaco today. A couple of years ago there was talk about a new Kingdom 5KR for Prince Alwaleed. Is it under construction…?

If you're flying into Nice airport, look out of the window on your left when you hit the coast, about five minutes before landing, and you should see Kingdom 5KR moored in Antibes below you.

Blue Bird

Blue Bird classic yacht

Yacht name: Blue Bird
Formerly: Blue Bird IV -> Sterope -> Janick
Length: 104 ft • 32 m
Year: 1938
Builder: Goole
Rebuild: Astilleros de Mallorca • 2007
Architect: GL Watson
Interior: Bannenberg

Photo: NT • Monaco Grand Prix • May 2009

Blue Bird has a long and interesting history. She was originally commissioned as an ocean-going yacht for Sir Malcolm Campbell's treasure hunting ambitions. But World War II put an end to those plans and she was requisitioned and took part in the Dunkirk evacuation in 1940.

After the war she passed into the French car manufacturer Jean-Louis Renault's hands and was renamed Sterope. More recently, she was completely rebuilt to give her her original profile and a comfortable modern interior.

July 2008: The Predator approaches Monaco …
June 2008: Predator has arrived on the Côte d'Azur - seen here from the air behind Amevi and Eos.

March 2008: Predator is in Amsterdam, captured here in this great set of photos by Arjan, against an overcast Coenhaven backdrop. As you can see the grey Awlgrip wrapping in the launch video below has now been removed - I think that's a trace of it still visible on the bow…

Jan 2008: The second reverse bow megayacht in as many weeks… The Feadship Predator was launched 5 Jan 2008 at Aalsmeer in the Netherlands.
