Ostentatious beyond concept! Does create some employment though. Seems the $325 M could be put to better use.

Hmmm. I don’t think Greta would approve of that one.

Was passed by this today. It's not the boat that caught my attention, but the gas grill mounted on the port side of the swim platform. Water was flowing up through the platform slots and appeared to be soaking the 20 pound steel propane tank. Guess this works in freshwater, but probably not a happy ending going down the AICW.

The late Paul Allen's yacht. Mr Allen did plenty of "good" while on this earth and his numerous charitable entities are still providing "goodness" for mankind, even in his death...


I think he gets a "pass"...

Bad engine room. Needs new fuel tanks. Too much of a project - not for me. However if you can pick it up for $70-80k then it might be worth it.

Me-thinks it's overpowered and the fuel tanks are too small, but interesting anyways.
I looked at this one two years ago. Definitetly rough. The hull is (was?) sound but needed repainting everywhere. The interior was not done well in my opinion but servicable. Huge engine for the hull. The price has come down a lot but still not enough for the work I feel it needs.

Took a few pics tonight of Slow Lane (my rig) and Black Pearl (the DeFever 49).

Beautiful night in Boston....Perfectly clear skies and dead calm.

First impressions: She was a dock queen for a long time. Probably was a liveaboard for the latter periods of her life.

Her exterior was tired and matte. But not so bad that you cringed by looking at her. Actually from my marina's boardwalk, which is only about 75 feet away she looks amazing. But when you're 5 feet away then you notice her scratches, dings, matte finish and old skin. LOL. But this old girl would be in her old glory again with some Botox and plastic surgery!!

Her interior is dated but VERY CLASSY. Even a young buck like me (38 years old) would be proud to live in there.

The salon is amazing. Spacious. Same with the galley.

The pilothouse is very cool. Very commanding view. The electronics are laughable.....but that's nothing a good $5-7k couldn't fix. Haha

I LOVE the side decks, foredeck and dingy space w crane.

Ill update soon with some solid critique of this beauty. Could be a very good deal for someone (like me!)…...

Just a reaction to an earlier post that also had nothing to do with boats...easy to disregard and then it just fades away.

A guy living in south Sudan or many parts of south America on a buck a day could say the same thing about your little boat, careful when you tell someone they have too much.

Correct. You and I have more than many in the world. Homeless person on the street sees us as rich. And in comparison... we are. However there is a term called the "tipping point", wherefrom too much is simply too much for us [you and me - or anyone] to rightfully own. Where that tipping point exists for each person is elusive for sure. But... when a pleasure boat with nearly uncountable periphery play toys is in the range of $325M... well, just sayen!

That said: On another post I was informed that $325M was owned by the late Paul Allen... who evidently was a great philanthropist. The reason I'd made my remark was because I'd figured that "toy ship" was owned by some oil mogul who could care less about the wellbeing of others. Seems I was incorrect.

I guess Paul Allen gets a pass on this one!
