There was an unusual traffic slowdown on Lake Shore Drive over the weekend.

With the help of a truck, a huge yacht made its way into Navy Pier Sunday afternoon.

The 86-foot racing vessel named Ocean will be on display for the 17th annual Strictly Sail Chicago show opening Thursday.

The huge yacht costs more than $3.5 million. Ocean's biggest sail measures 5,000 square feet.

In addition to the sail show at Navy Pier this week, the yacht will grace Chicago's lakefront this summer.
