The lunch customers at Pier Sixty-Six’s Pelican Landing in Fort Lauderdale got a special treat watching Steven Spielberg’s 282-foot Oceanco Seven Seas depart the dock and pass through the 17th Street bridge.

    You might notice the flag on this boat. The guys on the water taxi point out that most of the huge boats based in Fort Lauderdale which are owned by Americans have a foreign registry to avoid taxes. This looks like a Bahamian flag. I’m Canadian, winter in Pompano. don’t have a boat here.but if a were a rich American with a boat like this I would register it in the USA. It’s much like a lot of pro golfers who claim places like Monaco as their country of residence also to avoid taxes in the country where they make most of their money.

    I am impressed by the many design features that are found on commercial ships which have been gracefully incorporated into the Seven Seas. For example the drop down platforms at the bow and mid ship which allow for line handling and good sight lines for watch keepers. I am also impressed with the ability of the crew members to lift the large inflatable fenders in order to stow them away. They are not as light as they appear to be! This crew is fit!
