Siran in 1992
I first saw Siran in 1992 in Monaco. Drawn to any kind of harbour i had spent most of the day gawping at the multitude of boats in Monaco which is an absolute "must go" for all boatie poseurs. Big fat beer bellied old men with the token dolly birds parading about on board who would never be seen anywhere near if these men were sitting in an old Ford Escort! I reckoned most boats that were owned, must be drug dealers. The rest just chartered out.
Then, the Siran appeared gliding slowly into port. As it did, all the poseurs scurried away below the decks of their "borrowed boats"! The Siran is no "boat"....it's more a ship!
I have quite a few photographs of it and got to chat with this girl who worked as a Secretary on board, her brother also a crew member. She would not tell me who it belonged to, but she did say she wished she could take me on board to look around. She described the Bathrooms which were all fitted out using the best Italian marble and gold fittings
