    The Naval- and Shipyard HDW in Kiel, part of ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, is builing a new typ of a yacht, which looks like a DD(X) Zumwalt class destroyer. The displacement is 5600 tons and the length is 116 meters.

    Who is the owner of the yacht is to be kept secret and should not be made public. It is speculated that Roman Abramovich, the new owner of the yacht should be.
    In addition to its own board helicopter, the yacht over several weapons for self-defense on board.

    If this yacht is 459 feet long, it could be the 'Crystal Ball'!

      The project name is Sigma (SF99 Hull number 970) and she was designed by the French designer Philippe Starck http://www.philippe-starck.com/.

      The contract was with Blohm and Voss but due to the Hamburg yard being too busy it was decided to use the HDW yard at Kiel.

        The French link is not working. I can confirm that the yacht is called 'Sigma' or 'Project Sigma'. It is 387 feet long. It may belong to Roman or Malenchenko (who?).

          Military linework seems to be a vogue among some of the premium rich man's toymakers at the moment, try googling the Lamborghini Reventn with its jetfighter side intakes and so on.
          (Personally I think a car should look like a car and much prefer the the rounded classic lines of an Alfa Romeo 8C, but that's of course a whole different matter.)

              Drug dealers can now have their own stealth ships.

                  Name correction, the yacht may belong to Andrei Melnichenko and Roman is a client of Andrei's.
