Two large sailing yachts visiting Ireland

At, we always enjoy seeing photos of yachts in unusual places. This week, we received photos from Ireland, where two large sailing yachts made their way to Dun Laoghaire Marina, located in the historic harbour of Dun Laoghaire on the southern shore of Dublin Bay. The harbour was completed in 1859 and used as a refuge harbour before it was opened for business on St Patricks Day 2001.

This summer has seen the marina’s largest superyacht to have visited the waters, 46 metre, Christopher. Built by Pendennis Shipyard in 2011 and with naval architecture and exteriors by Ron Holland, the vessel easily accommodates up to 12 guests in luxury and style.

The marina also welcomed 28 metre, First Light, launched by Taiwan-based shipyard Ta Chiou Chou in 2006. Owners, family and crew on board these yachts have been said to have enjoyed the convenient doorstep location to Ireland’s vibrant capital city.

If you have photos of superyachts in unusual locations around the world, feel free to submit them to [email protected].
