Cool Boat

I thought this was a really interesting "expedition" type boat. It was parked at the mega-yacht dock (pier 27/29) at America's Cup Park. Lot's of toys. I think the tender launch set up is really cool. Slip/dockage fees were running about $30,000 a day. The boat behind it is Athena. KJ

Nifty fenders! Can't believe the claimed $30,000 per day berthing. That's about eleven million dollars a year!

That was for the A-Cup races. The rates were somewhat less for the Louis Vuitton Cup. KJ

Anyone care to speculate how they would launch the tender.

One of the deck hands we spoke with said the transom drops down and becomes a ramp for launching/retrieval.

She charters for about $280K -- a week! However, you have to provide your own helicopter. KJ
