PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — One of the world's largest yachts is paying a visit to Maine.
The Rising Sun, which arrived Tuesday in Portland Harbor, is 453 feet long and reportedly cost more than $200 million to build. It has 82 rooms, a private cinema, a basketball court that doubles as a helicopter pad and a swimming pool.
The Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/18W2O7T ) reports that the yacht is owned by billionaire David Geffen, a record executive and film producer who started DreamWorks Studios with Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg.
