She’s been over at Mariners Harbor Yacht Club (Staten Island)  for at least two years now.  She started life in 1953 as Mars for Boston Towboat.  Dimensions, then as now, are 96′ x 25′.  In 2000 (?), Mars was sold and a conversion began to make her an expedition yacht, owned by the online job search site, hence the name Sea MonsterHere‘s a description of work done, and a number of dollars spent.  Any guesses on that dollar amount?  The answer is in the link two sentences back.

It’s way outside my budget, but I like the look.  And I’d imagine for folks who don’t think twice about several million dollars for a yacht, this would make a great tender.  Anyone seen photos of the actual interior and machinery?
