His main reason for why he sailed in to Boston , I heard he went over to East Boston and bought some Real Estate .

I assume that thing has hidden torpedo tubes in front. And depth charge barrels in back.

Why are people so impressed with the ultra-rich and their big, expensive toys? I wonder how many thousands of people could have been fed using the money spent to construct this waste of space. How big of a boat could one couple possibly need? smh.

This Giant Thing was sitting in the harbor for several days. That's what was interesting to me.

Hundreds of people were fed for a couple of years when they built this. It was built in Britain and employed a lot of people.

Those people would have been better employed building something useful.

I wouldn't be shocked if a good percentage of the boat was in fact made by robots.

If you read the first article Adam posted, from here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2110341/Kirsty-Bertarelli-yacht-...

You would have read

It was built by 200 craftsmen and drew a crowd of onlookers as the couple sailed off for the Caribbean on Friday.

So, show us your shocked face.

No one said they were impressed but it sounds like you may be jealous

Did anybody catch the name of the very large sailing yacht with a green hull tied up right near the Vava? I couldn't get an angle to see it. By the size of the stick, I'm guessing the boat was around 140 feet.

I'd kill to take the wheel on something like that. Power boats, not really.

Is this the same yacht and same people who made themselves so many friends in New York last week when they anchored the ship in front of the Statue of Liberty?
Coast Guard or Harbor Patrol said what they did was legal because it was a spot that wasn't blocking a navigation channel on wasn't within the security limits of the island, but it really obnoxiously ruined a lot of people's views of the statue- anybody going by on a boat trying to take a picture of the Statue had his yacht in the foreground.

Which you could've probably figured out in about 30 seconds of searching on, oh, something like "New York harbor yacht statue of liberty," which would have gotten you a ton of stories like this one.
