    Peter, I’m a bit confused with the wording in here.
    “she is the largest purpose built yacht to call in Halifax, bested by the Lone Ranger” That makes Bella Vita the 2nd largest?
    And you say it belongs to a Google co-founder, who is John Risely with Clearwater Seafood?

      Lone Ranger is larger, but was converted from an Ocean Going Tug – so it was not built as a yacht. its first owner was a google co founder.
      so Bella Vita is the largest Purpose built yacht to call on halifax. It was previously owned by John Risley, who runs Clearwater Seafood. Clearwater is a large producer of various seafoods, and is well know in NS. they operate a sizeable fleet of Fishing Vessels.
