Floating hotel piggy-backs into Gibraltar

GIBRALTAR Gibraltar’s new floating hotel, Sunborn Gibraltar, arrived yesterday morning on the back of a transportation vessel. She was due to be floated off her host this morning and will later be moved to Gibdock for minor preparatory work. According to The Gibraltar Chronicle, Brian Stevendale, CEO for Sunborn Gibraltar, said: "This is a huge news story for Gibraltar, the arrival of the world’s first five star yacht hotel on our shores. She’s a stunning piece of workmanship and over 3,000 experts from across the world have been involved in her development and construction – a project of a monumental scale. "Not only will she provide a much needed luxury hospitality and events venue for Gibraltar, but she will also create 200 permanent jobs for local people.”
