The boat, has two helipads and carries four other luxury boats it was reportedly lost by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to its current owner in a bet

One of the biggest superyachts in the world has paid a visit to the Firth of Forth this afternoon.

The 370ft luxury yacht, Le Grand Bleu, boasts not one but two helipads, a sailboat and a large powerboat mounted towards the stern and enough space for 20 guests to stay in absolute luxury.

The yacht, which was built in 2000 at the Bremer Vulkan yarrds in Germany in, was previously owned by Chelsea Football Club owner Roman Abramovich.

The massive craft now belongs to Russian-American oil tycoon Eugene Shvidler, after he won it from his pal Chelsea FC owner Abramovich in a bet.

The boat has two additional yachts on individual cranes, a 73-foot sailboat on the port side, and the other is a 68-foot powerboat as well as two more sports boats in an internal garage.

The bermuda-flagged vessel is currently in the middle of the Firth of Forth, level with the docks at Rosyth.

According to the Marine Traffic website the yacht left the port of Kristiansand in Norway two weeks ago on Wednesday August 5 headed for Leith.

She took the scenic route apparently, being spotted off Chanonry Point near Inverness a week ago on Tuesday August 11.

Boat International claims the massive superyacht has a crew of 35 and boasts an on board aquarium, and a 4X4 Land Rover with its own landing craft to ferry it ashore.
