Clan VIII is tied up alongside the main finger dock

The Cow Bay dock played host to a fairly impressive looking sailing vessel on Wednesday, with the Clan VIII tied up alongside the outer berth of the Marina Finger dock, it's mast prominent on the harbour  sklyline from any number of directions.

The luxury yacht vessel which is registered in Valhalla, Malta, arrived at Cow Bay from Ketchikan on the 26th, built in 2011 it is 45.3 metres in length and 9 metres across.

According to the website Yacht Charter Fleet, the custom built vessel hosts up to 7 guests in three rooms, along with a crew of six. It features a 147.64 (45m) ft sloop sail.

It was built by the Italian shipbuilders Peirni Navi

If you have some spare change hanging around the kitchen, it currently charters out at approximately 151,000 dollars per week ... plus expenses.

Some its ports of call of note while on a global tour include the Amafi Coast, French and Italian Riviera, Sardinia and San Tropez to name a few.

Putting Prince Rupert in some interesting company on the yachting scene.

The Cow Bay waterfront was a busy place for the afternoon, as smaller sail boats and motor craft tied up alongside the dock, navigating their way into place amidst the travels of a number of fishing boats that were heading out from Prince Rupert harbour on the day.
