Two new views of Sheikh Mo's yacht Dubai, still the largest yacht in the world. 1 & 2.
Angela has sent in a very nice set of Dubai aerial shots, taken over Jebel Ali, in a helicopter leaving the Burj Al-Arab. Great photos !
A 40m catamaran under construction is visible behind, with a 114m yacht in the shed, and another smaller vessel behind that.
KT reports that an artificial island, where the yacht will be moored, has been built 20 miles from Dubai and is nearing completion.
Dubai was delivered to its owners in 2006.
