Santo Domingo.- Local media report t a visit by British tycoon Richard Branson to the resort city of Puerto Plata, aboard a luxury yacht in late 2016.

The 66-year-old billionaire who owns the world brand Virgin and some 360 companies of the Virgin Group spent more than five days in Puerto Plata where he anchored his yacht in Ocean World marina in the town Cofresi and toured several sites of the tourism destination in limousines.

"It was precisely that boat valued at more than 100 million dollars with a helicopter above, which caught the attention of all the people who excitedly admired it at a distance, but there were no more details on the visit," said a source quoted by elnuevodiario.com.do.

!!! What you see on the picture, the yacht, is NOT the Necker Belle Cloud Break . The Necker Belle was anchored just BEHIND this yacht, which is named the CLOUDBREAK. The owner from CLOUDBREAK is NOT Richard Branson. Just google it.

Richard Branson is the owner from Necker Belle, which is a large 32 meter sailing catamaran. Just google it.

Who ever was it that anchored his yacht on the North Coast of Puerto Plata, if his intent is to invest in the DR, unlike you and me or the average joe, I am sure he has a team of experts and advisors to guide him through the Dominican Labyrinth and obstacle course. If anyone tries to screw him over, believe me I am sure he has very effective methods to take care of any wise guy who tries to pull a fast one over him.

I hope he has good advisors and good lawyers to protect any investments. He is going to need it of he is looking into Cofresi . That is the rip off Capitol of the island .
