Most of us don't see something like this every day. A multi-million dollar yacht moored alongside the Canal View restaurant in Sylvan Beach.

Loads of people saw this beauty on Sunday, June 27, and took pictures. She was christened the 'Andiamo.' We thought we found lots of info on her, but upon closer inspection realized it was the wrong yacht. We were surprised at how many yachts there are with the same name.

Tessllc says a yacht is a larger, recreational boat or ship. The word “Yacht” came from Dutch origin and was originally defined as a light and fast sailing vessel used by the Dutch navy to find and capture pirates. On the other hand, a boat is smaller in size and can be anything from a fisherman's boat to a sailboat.

We think the Andiamo looks like she could have been featured on The Bravo reality show Below Deck Mediterranean with Captain Sandy, and for all we know,  she might have been.

Patrick Thomas says the yacht was coming from Florida and on its way to Michigan. The family owns 17 boats. This is the largest one they own, along with 2 planes.

I spoke with the engineer from the boat its cost was around 16 million. The boat is 22 feet wide by 110 feet long.

Jeanne Cahl DeLong tells us this about the Palm Beach Andiamo :

"It was a crew moving the boat. We spoke to the engineer. He said they have a fleet of 17. He would not tell us who the owner was but said it’s something many people have in their homes. He talked to us for a while. Beautiful boat!"

The engineer told DeLong that if he Googled the yacht, he could find out more. Now we spent hours and hours, and we did find a bunch of Andiamo Yachts, but none that looked like this one.

John John tells the Sylvan Beach and Oneida Lake Facebook Group that there's a trip boaters like to take called “The Great Loop.”  In short, it goes through the Great Lakes down the Barge/Erie Canal to the Hudson, down the coast around Florida, around the Gulf of Mexico to the Mouth of the Mississippi River in Louisiana up the Mississippi back to the Great Lakes.

You can start and end at any point and it can take from a few months to a year to complete. We are lucky enough to be on this route. That is why if you walk along the pier you’ll see boats from all over the eastern US. It is a “bucket list” trip for avid boaters. If you look close, some of them will have a flag somewhere on the boat with a red outline of the route.

We agree with you, John. We are lucky to see some amazing boats, so when you out, have your camera ready!

Here are some amazing photos that were taken while the Palm Beach Andiamo was in Sylvan Beach. Thanks for sharing.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.

Northern Lights In Old Forge

It's not really common to see northern lights in Central New York, but photographer Kurt Gardner captured the beautiful conformation of them near Old Forge. We're usually too far south of the North Pole, but sometimes we get lucky.
Auroras are caused by the Sun. The Sun is not only hot and bright, but it's also full of energy and small particles that fall toward Earth. NASA says the protective magnetic field around Earth shields us from most of the energy and particles, and we don't even notice them.
The amount of energy the Sun sends, depends on the streaming solar wind and solar storms. During one kind of solar storm called a coronal mass ejection, the Sun expels a huge bubble of electrified gas that can travel through space at high speeds.
When a solar storm comes toward us, some of the energy and small particles can travel down the magnetic field lines at the north and south poles into Earth's atmosphere. There, the particles interact with gases in our atmosphere resulting in beautiful displays of light in the sky. Oxygen gives off green and red light. Nitrogen glows blue and purple. [NASA]
