    Mirabella III now Fitted with Helideck

    Earlier this month Merijn de Waard spotted the 41.4 metre superyacht Mirabella III in Palma, with a new Helipad. She is one of only a handful of large sailing yachts that has the capability to land a helicopter on deck.

    The helipad is not the only unusual thing about this yacht. She was built in 1994 in Thailand by Concorde Yachts, and is perhaps the only superyacht ever launched, using the assistance of elephants to transport the yachts from the building shed to the water!

    Aye, signore Elipix, am with you there; for superyachts are perhaps the epitome of self-indulgent excess.

    Beautiful looking motor yacht but I think I will stick to my canoe and donate some money to Oxfam or other deserving charity

    But here is an EC135 landing aboard the MY 'Skat' in Norway in July. This yacht used to carry an MD520N:

    A recent completion by Ancona-based CRN Yachts in Italy. No shots of an on board helicopter (as yet) though:
