Not in the same league as Octopus but impressive nonetheless and certainly the largest yacht I've seen in our area. Took up the whole outer part of Camden Harbor. A pilot is required to bring her into Penobscot Bay and Bar Harbor. Wonder what she was doing around here this time of year/off season.

Maybe I'll sell my boat and charter this one for 20 minutes or so...

RE: Recent visitor

Don't like the furniture at all but wow * *...what gracious living. Most of those mega-yachts are rather gaudily styled but that one is a gracious lady from far or near. Mark Pierce would (perhaps) like the blue hull. I even like it in the sun but on a dark day it could be a bit dull.Thanks for sharing David.

Perhaps the owner is female or, if not, it was done to keep "Momma" happy.

RE: Recent visitor

As I see it, owning a boat like that removes me from the joy of working on my own boat, fixing things myself. If I had enough cash to own that boat, I would have to hire people to work on it.

Yuk!

Never heard of a boat new or old that something didn't need "fixing".* That is why warranties are so important.
