The stylish vessel is one of the most high-end yachts in the world and has its own infinity pool and sundeck jacuzzi.

It is currently owned by Russian oil baron Alexander Dzhaparidze, who is worth an estimated £1billion.

It is not known who is on board the enormous boat, which is available to charter, but it has been confirmed that it is being used to allow them to self-isolate due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The yacht has a number of spectacular features, including a large beach club area in the stern and an indoor cinema.

There is space for up to 12 guests in the vessel's ten rooms, which also includes a large master suite.

Elsewhere there are three VIP staterooms, two double cabins and four twin cabins.

It has a top speed of 17 knots – around 20mph.

The vessel was built in 2017 by specialist firm Amels Holland at their yard in Vlissingen, Holland.

It was purchased later that same year after it was showcased at both the Monaco Yacht Show and the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Its interior is the work of the designer Tim Heywood and covers five decks.

The vessel is attracting a huge amount of attention from passers-by in Poole Quay, as it dwarfs every other boat in the area.

Here Comes The Sun is available for charter, although the cost of chartering her is not listed.
