Yacht Spotting: Baton Rouge

Baton Rouge was anchored near the Bitter End Yacht Club in Virgin Gorda when we sailed up to BVIs to meet our friends on Celebration for Thanksgiving. As far as mega yachts go, this one is pretty. I especially like the “BR” logo with the backward “B”. Just over 200 feet long, she can carry 16 crew and 12 guests. For some exterior and interior photos, look here. She's apparently owned by a French billionaire. Those billions will come in handy when it's time to fill the fuel tanks, though I'm sure the $500,000 charter fee (Caribbean high season) helps out. By the way, I'm sure that half-million dollars isn't for the entire season, but probably a week, hopefully not just a day.
