It looks like an overhead (drone?) picture of a Flettner ship.

100% correct.. wiki

Apparently the owner wants to be green..

His other boat is a bit of a gas hog. And not really big enough.

I'll walk my way around that comment by saying I didn't think this was a hard one to guess .. being in the news and all.

I have a something or two (I'll post images) that I don't know what they are and see where it goes with the bird soon!

I mean the ship was bird's eye view after all.

It looks like a shipbuilding dock where they are building a ship.
