Pirates getting boarded and weird French performance art are the subjects of just two of the photos in our weekly roundup of the world's best boating pictures

In this week’s roundup of the world’s best boating photos , we have a Russian freighter that’s had better days, French performance artists walking on water and special forces teams taking on the pirate scourge.

Head to our gallery to see all the photos, and check out previous weeks’ best boating photos 

This week we’ve also uploaded some images of Ocean Emerald , the superyacht designed by renowned architect Norman Foster and if you’ve been on an MBM cruise in the last couple of years, see if you can spot yourself in our Cruising Club gallery .
