Photo captured by JK Adams Photography, Pensacola, Florida

The “Archimedes” was cruising by Fort Pickens this morning, with perfect timing from the Blue Angels and the moment was caught by the extraordinary JK Adams Photography.


Archimedes is a 222′ superyacht owned by mathematician billionaire James Simons. Built in 2008 by the Dutch-owned Feadship, it is powered by twin Caterpillar engines. It can accommodate 12 guests (with 6 bedrooms) and has room for 18 crew members.

James Simons is an American mathematician, businessman, and philanthropist. His net worth is $29 billion, and he resides with his wife in Long Island, New York. He is the founder of Renaissance Technologies, a quantitative hedge fund management company that uses mathematical and statistical methods to analyze financial markets.
