Hawaii-based photographer and videographer, Brent Bielman, has captured the moment an imposing behemoth of a superyacht pulled focus from a surfer during the latter’s recent reef break in Fiji.

Initially, the footage provoked a reaction from fellow groms, who took issue with the fact the water sport-loving operator didn’t “go to turns” and barrel dodged, eventually resulting in an otherwise vanilla run.

Then came the influx of superyacht-related comments.

“I wonder if the chopper makes up for not being able to get barrelled,” posted a commenter; under the assumption the surfer in Fiji and superyacht owner were one in the same.

“All that bling and still can’t get barrelled… ?✌,” posted another, under the same assumption.

“When the Russians hit the lineup.”

“Is that a yacht or an aircraft carrier?'”

“Tell the yacht douche to beat it. LAME.”

“I used to work for that boat owner, worst ten months of my life ?????,” revealed someone by the name of muke_gollhofer.

“Yup that boat is a pathetic excuse for one. Must be an old old oligarch trying to hide away…”

“The SS TINY PEEPEE even has a helicopter, nice.”

“When I was there last time, had a similar yacht blocking the view and I told them, can you please move your yacht so my life doesn’t feel so shitty…?”

Considering the seizure of Lürssen-built superyacht M/Y Amadea back in April, which is owned by sanctioned Russian oligarch Suleiman Kerimov, it’s unlikely the sea vessel has any real ties to the country currently invading Ukraine.

The superyacht everyone’s fussing over appears to be M/Y Plan B (formerly: Flinders)

Measuring up to 49.99 metres Motor Yacht, Plan B was designed by De Villiers Yacht Design and built in Australia circa 1973 by HMA Naval Dockyard (the Australian Navy). She was officially delivered in 1973 and refitted decades later in 2011.

M/Y Plan B’s top speed is 12 knots while her cruising speed is 11 knots. With a maximum cruising range of 7,000 nautical miles, she houses twin Caterpillar diesel engines, can accommodate for up to 12 guests across five staterooms (in addition to 14 crew members), and has a gross tonnage of 737 GT. The beam? 10.06 metres.
