DUBAI – Fancy buying the first superyacht in bitcoins?
The 37-metre Nordic Star sent waves down the boating industry at the Dubai International Boat Show by becoming the first superyacht up for sale in bitcoins.
The classic beauty has hosted Frank Sinatra, Jack Lemmon and most recently, Prince Harry.
The International Boat Show is currently taking place at the Dubai Canal near Dubai Ladies Club until March 3, with adrenaline-pumping action on show both above and in the water.
The 26th edition of the show includes some of the most extreme water sports and exciting toys on offer from leading international and locally-based companies.
Appearing alongside a fleet of luxurious superyachts at the mouth of Dubai Canal, are the latest jetskis, flyboards, speedboats and a collaboration between a submarine maker and a world-famous supercar marque. DAJ/Expat Media
