Last weekend, a 164-foot super yacht, Force India, moored in the Dart River. The owner is Vijay Mallya, the owner of Force India formula one team. He is the subject of extradition proceedings instigated by the Indian authorities following the collapse of his Kingfisher Airline and default on loans totalling over $1.4 billion. It is not known if Mr Mallya is on board.

The yacht is available on charter for £130,000 a week plus expenses. The yacht was built by Overmarine in Italy. It yacht boasts a top speed of 40 knots and a cruising speed of 28 knots. She can accommodate up to 10 guests and has a crew of 9. Built in 2007 she was refitted this year.
