Big Willi pulls luxury ladies out of the Rhine

Every winter, he heaves dozens of luxury yachts weighing up to 100 tons out of the Rhine. Special crane Big Willi begins his spectacular work again just before Christmas. First up is the 23-meter-long Sunseeker 74from the UK, which will then be transported to the exhibition halls of the world’s largest water sports fair in Düsseldorf. This year, the ‘boot’ will be celebrating its 50th anniversary.
