Yachts a Million 6

Planet 9 was in the boro for some time, and actually recently left.  Specs can be found here, although I don’t know if it’s currently for sale or just changed hands.  I suspect it’s the former. At any rate it’ll change hands for a mere $100 million. I’m not sure how large a fleet is […]

Yachts A Million 5

I’d thought to call this “summer yachts,” but in spite of sublime weather, it’s not summer any more.  “Yachts a million” works too, with these two unusual vessels.  And we’ll start with this one, Magnet.  Now that I’ve learned a little more about this 148′ catamaran yacht, I regret not having walked around to the […]

Yachts a Million 4

See it between those ships?  It’s  . . .  Utopia! And that’s within the dimensions of 207′ x 36′ and powered by 4 x MTU 16V 2000 M96L’s. Well, Utopia IV, that is, the $50 million yacht of someone with the net worth . . . of Bob Dylan.  Back to that later, the owner’s […]

Yachts a Million 3

Here are previous installments. I caught Invictus earlier this week as it came into the boro.  I had no idea then that by midweek, it would become newsworthy, although it would be on Page Six.  Anyone know what I’m talking about?  Answer follows. I don’t know if this is the Invictus owner driving the tender […]

Yachts a Million 2

Name this vessel?  Right there is the name.  Answer at end of the post. I’d love to see the interior, as it might be as stark as the lines. This is severe, almost military, but I like it. This to is excess with an excessive name . . . Vibrant Curiosity, which happens to be […]

Yachts a Million

A Nordhavn 62 . . .  ??  exiting the Erie Canal last weekend.  Professional delivery crew? It was interesting that something they saw on the bulkhead in Waterford prompted them to do a 180 and try to squeeze onto the bulkhead.  Was it thoughts of dining on sausage and onions washed down with a Keegan Ale?  Port of registry here–Port […]

A to P 7: Yachts

By the way, A to P, if you suffer from CRS as I do, expands to Atlantic to Pacific, across the skinny continent of Panama.  Today’s post makes me want to create a “crew finder” profile, as this would be a way to gallivant across the Pacific in style, in exchange for less work than […]

Summer Yachts 2

Here was 1 and another I could have called “summer yachts” as well.  And then there are this one and another . . .  again . . . Pilar is a stunner in so many ways . . .  registered in Key West and originally Elhanor, I believe it was built in Brooklyn one hull […]

More Aphrodite

or maybe I should say “more, Aphrodite!“ Many thanks to eastriver for these photos taken last summer.  Just some specs first and then I’ll link to a number of articles I hope you enjoy reading as much as I did. Built in 1937 for $90,000, adjusted to about $1,730,000 in 2021 money, Aphrodite has twin […]

Virtual Erie Canal 8W: Closing the Circle

Three Rivers Junction, where the Seneca meets the Oneida, forming the Oswego, it’s got to be right around that bend. At Three Rivers we sail into our own wake;  we’ve performed the ouroboros.  There’s just this sign, which we saw on leg 9 of the earlier virtual tour.  No pier, no quay, no wharf, no […]
