    Topaz has been in New York all week. We saw her out last night and snapped this photo by the Statue of Liberty.

    Topaz to host Leo DiCaprio for the World Cup

    She's been spotted here in Brazil, anchored off at Rio de Janeiro, said to be hosting superstar Leonardo Dicaprio + 21 friends for the World Cup. Here're couple of links with the news:

    It is being said that she's larger than any boat in the Brazilian fleet, except for the aircraft carrier Sao Paulo (A12)

    Well according to some rumors Topaz has been traded to the Prince of Saudi Arabia for a painting. Very interesting. Now the Prince has two very large yachts now being Topaz and Serene.

    Here is a link to the article if you'd like to check it out. Didn't expect to come across this. Makes me wonder now that the former owner will go to Lurssen and build a bigger and better version of the Topaz. Only time will tell.

    "Topaz" returns home to Lurssen assuming for refit work.

    The yacht formerly known as 'Topaz' is now 'A+'.

    According to a few acrticles on YouTube the DOJ has filed a suit to seize Topaz or now known as A+.
    This will probably end up as a similar situation as Equanimity.

    Well I hope it get seized so we can see the interior. While they say the company paid $688M for it, it seems to more be a way to inflate the price to launder the proceeds from 1MDB.
