Not that im into motoryachts all that much, I would much rather have sail power, but its amazing to see the amount of money people have. To top it off I got a hull cleaning job from the Westport due to SEVERE neglect. The WHOLE underbelly had barnacles almost an inch thick. With two divers on either side it took us 7 hours. Last time she was cleaned was 3 years ago. Goes to show you they either have disposable income and could care less, or have no clue about boat ownership.
And they probably pay 13% or less on their income taxes
