The luxury super yacht “Albatross,” built by Delta Marine in Seattle, is in sea trials all this week in Puget Sound waters. It will be cruising, testing its various speeds and anchoring out in Elliott Bay periodically.

While novices may notice those gleaming white vessels from the shore, the rich and racer-interested have made a hobby out of yacht tracking, even using Coast Guard data to pinpoint where Paul Allen’s Octopus, Len Blavatnik’s Odessa, Steven Spielberg’s Seven Seas, or whichever pristine pleasure boat is being chartered by Kim Kardashian is anchored . . . that is, if you can’t see the luxury cruisers from the Croisette.
