Ew!  Would not want a boat like that.  Too big and too ugly.  Sad

I'm too hands on to want a boat that requires a crew.  If I can't pilot it myself or dock it in my back yard, it would not appeal to me.  For me, the joy of boating is piloting the craft and sharing the experience with a handful of friends.  Good food, wine, and navigating the waters.  Cool

Yeah I agree...

Funny story. Con had the boat out for new years 2000 in Sydney Harbour and a member of the dannish royal family asked to come on board. Cons wife carol isnt very much of a socialite and didnt know what to organise for dinner for them and only could think of offering "Fish & Chips".....

Arnold can afford one, although with his possible divorce I'm not sure what will remain of his fortune.
Sylvester Stallone could buy such a yacht, especially if you consider that the vast majority of such new built boats are offered as charters. If it's a successful charter yacht, the owner can vastly lower his expenses.

If one of them is the owner, as they are extremely famous, such information would be all over the web. So probably the yacht is being built for another fitness/health/muscle/physique oriented person.

On the other hand: I have yet to read that either Schwarzenegger of Stallone are yachting fans. Has one of them owned a yacht or superyacht before?
But then again, I didn't think Steve Jobs was interested in buying a megayacht, but he (or now his widow) has a Philippe Starck designed megayacht under construction at Feadship De Vries in Aalsmeer (Holland)
A $80 million yacht is a huge expense for even someone with a $300 million net worth. Arnold can not spend almost a 1/3 of his net worth on a boat (well he can but I am sure as a businessman he would not consider this). There are maintenance costs involved as well.

Even Luxury Yachts Can Sink

Shortly after setting out with their brand new Fairline Squadron 58, a 60-foot luxury yacht, two Norwegian men ran it into some submerged rocks and it sank. The men abandoned the sinking ship in the rubber lifeboat, which also started to sink. The Norwegian rescue crews believe that the men were relying too much on their electronic charts and it was an error in navigation (either an error in reading the charts or in the charts themselves) that caused the boat to hit the rocks. The yacht was valued at $2 million and featured four bedrooms, with room for 10 people.

The lesson learned here is that, while fancy electronic equipment is great in a yacht, it's also good if you know how to sail before you set out. And that it's probably a good idea to check the condition of the life boat, just to be safe.

Ouch!  So very true.  There is a huge learning curve if one is serious about boating.  This is what happens when you don't climb that curve.  I hope those guys had good insurance. Embarrassed

Thanks for the echo.  Can't believe quadzilla456 thought that Wally was impressive.  Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder.  Roll Eyes

Btw, the market for megayachts has crashed in recent years.

You Think Houses Are a Slow Sell? Try a Yacht
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/22/business/22yachts.html?scp=2&sq=yacht&st=cse

Even modest boating (by comparison) is a pricey hobby.  Boats have to be stocked with food, wine and other liquors.  I used to go boating with a buddy of mine who had a 40” and every time the boat went out it took $500 in gasoline to fill the tank.  Repairs and service bills are endless.  It is true what they say about boat owners: the two happiest days of your life are the day you buy the boat and the day you get rid of it.  It is a serious money pit and really only makes sense if you can write it all off as a business expense.

My boat owning friend told me once, “you don’t really want to own a boat; you want to be friends with someone who ones a boat.”  It was and remains good advice.  That way you experience all the joys of being invited to go boating . . . without any of the headaches of ownership.  Wink


Your friend has a 40"  sheesh that must hurt.

I remember hearing Trump say it cost him about $100k each time he took his yacht out.

Many of these homes are owned by moneyed people up north; people who only come down “in season” or in the winter.  Lauderdale tends to have people year round, but Palm Beach is famous for only being occupied in season.  Worth Ave (the man drag in Palm Beach) looks like a ghost town in the summer and fall.

Bernie Madoff used to have a place in Palm Beach.  He had a yacht too.  His favorite store in PB was Trillion--the name of which suggests the prices one will find within!  Lips sealed

A $80 million yacht is a huge expense for even someone with a $300 million net worth. Arnold can not spend almost a 1/3 of his net worth on a boat (well he can but I am sure as a businessman he would not consider this). There are maintenance costs involved as well.


Well, he could afford it, but I agree with you that financially, that wouldn't be smart.

But if 300 million usd is his net worth, and he has no debts, than a new Amels 180 is very well possible:

http://www.yachtshop.ru/shop/?l=170

Especially if he would offer the yacht for charter through a professional organisation/agent/broker. Sometimes a famous owner can lead to more bookings for his or her yacht. Steven Spielbergs "Seven Seas" is also available for charter.

Many times, megayacht prices are exaggerated. Other media like to come up with insane prices, just to attract attention to their article/magazine or website. According to Henk de Vries, CEO of Feadship De Vries Group, their megayachts cost between 25 en 200 million euros. (40 meters - 100 meters)
(And Feadship is not the cheapest yard around)

 The place to own a boat is in Florida where you can actually use it to go places throughout the year (the Keys, The Dry Tortugas, the other coast of FL, Caribbean islands, etc).  Not everyone would be into it I suppose, but I can think of few things more fun and adventurous than spending a few weeks or months with 2-5 friends hopscotching from one island to another, visiting... restocking supplies... partying... scuba diving, working out at different gyms (bodybuilding related), etc.  You can do all of this in Florida.  And when you are done you navigate home to the dock in your back yard and all the conveniences of home.

So is this what a gay fantasy is like Huh

Ill prefer the hetero raping and pillaging.
