Paul Kaplan snapped this shot of the 118' Galeocerdo which was draining the fuel tanks at Gashouse Cove this morning.

She holds 5,812 gallons of fuel. Not sure the capacity at Gas House Cove, but pretty sure, its resources were drastically lowered today...

The Wally Yacht was completed in 2003 under the name Wally Power:


The WallyPower has followed an intensive and exceptional Research & Development programme that involved specialised facilities (like SSPA in Sweden, the Ferrari Wind Tunnel Facility) to test the new features of the yacht. As a result, the 118-foot (36-meter) WallyPower stands out for her technology as well as for her contemporary design.
The construction of this high perfomance megayacht is in advanced composites. The propulsion system includes three gas turbines Detroit Diesel generating 16,800 HP and 60 knots of speed, and two auxiliary diesel engines (Cummins of 370 Hp each) for the manoeuvring, and for long range delivery at 9 knots of speed. The gas turbines are equipped with titanium exhausts to provide for light weight and resistance to the system high temperature, and to allow the cooling the gas turbines with sea water. The hi-tech exhaust system of the 118 WallyPower has been developed by the official supplier of the Swedish Navy.
The grey-green metallic colour of the hull contributes to the appeal of the 118 WallyPower that features unique lines enhancing her nautical characteristics, and a glass superstructure exploiting the Wally concept of inside-outside living spaces. The superstructure is built in carbon fiber and covered by laminated glass, and conceals in the top section the navigation radars and antennas in the navy style.
The forward deck of the yacht features the cockpit with a large bimini and pop-up tables and sliding seats: this system provides the opportunity to modify the layout according to various situations and requirements, from dining into sun-bathing or into living area. The large tender garage with lifting door is also in the forward deck, and serves as an open-air gym as well. The sections of the bulwarks alongside the superstructure, fold down to broaden the view from the salon, and to serve as a diving platform. The aft sliding gangway serves as very large passerelle when completely extended and as swimming ladder when folded

We saw this yesterday (Jan 2) roaring out to pass under the GG Bridge and then back again (exactly like the Red and White tour boats (http://www.redandwhite.com/)). Also it resembles this:

though with a more tasteful paint job.

Who owns it? I thought it was a mega-tender for a mega-yacht, but maybe not.

Lectronic Latitude says it's the tender for Kogo, which is still swinging on a hook off the Sausalito Yacht Club

Burns 15 gal of fuel per mile, or about 1 liter/second.

The fenders look out of place; shouldn't they cube-shaped or something?
