ONE of the largest yachts in the world has just docked in the UK – and is now on the market.

You can buy the Leander G for a cool £40.4 million, and set sail with 21 of your friends and family.

The massive German-built vessel, currently docked at Plymouth, was once owned by former Vice-Admiral Sir Donald Gosling, but it passed onto a new owner in 2016.

It is now on sale for €45 million (£40.4 million) having been put back on the market.

The 75-metre superyacht even ferried royalty around – the boat transported Prince Charles and Camilla on their royal tour of the West Indies in 2008.

The boat also hosted Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip on a tour of Great Britain.

The Leander G was designed by Claus Kusch, and has six decks in total, with a range of communal guest areas including a main saloon and dining room on the main deck.




There is also a jacuzzi deck, observation deck and study, a fitness room, a diving room and swim platform.

Guests can also be transported by the use of the helipad on the boat.

There are ten suites in total, consisting of two master suites with a study and a forward facing saloon, three double guest cabins with en-suite bathrooms and five twin guest cabins with bathrooms.

In total, the Leander G can accommodate 22 guests as well as a crew of 23.

The yacht was ordered in October 1990 by Brigadier Sir Timothy Landon from the former East German shipyard Peene-Werft at Wolgast to replace his yacht Katalina.




As the ship was being prepared, Landon decided to keep his existing ship due to his ill-health and sold the yet-unnamed vessel to Sir Donald Gosling.

He took over the final stages of the build and named the yacht after the cruiser HMS Leander, the first Royal Navy ship in which he served.

Gosling sold the yacht in February 2016 through broker Peter Insull to an unnamed private buyer, who removed the yacht from the charter market.
