Ex_Mil8 saidThen he sold it to a gay killing Saudi prince.
That's right, I nearly forget. It's that whole circle jerk, um, I mean circle of life thing, or death as the case may be. The fun part being that at least by a story I read, he was afraid to even go out on it. Just went aboard when tied to the dock. He's not JFK either.
That strikes me as a bullshit story, not on your part, you might not have known, but by the article because Rhode Island is a major yachting center by its protected harbors, many marinas, much marine industry services, easy access to Long Island Sound & Oyster Bay where we used to go, the Hamptons, Martha's Vineyard, places where he'd be boating, especially in that stunning boat. Newport to Martha's Vineyard is half a day's sail. But from Boston Harbor? That's probably a full day & night. In any case, the boat is officially owned by a limited liability company out of his wife's home state of PA so if you wanted to claim anything, then you wouldn't even claim MA, rather, those taxes would have gone instead of RI to PA, where everyone knows how fabulous is the yachting in Pittsburg.
Regardless, it is flagged American, unlike Trump's yacht which was unpatriotically, particularly so for a future presidential nominee, flagged offshore.
That there are also tax benefits in RI is certainly a convenience, especially for neighboring Mass residents--brought about by and to encourage the industry there--but that would not be his motivating factor. For that matter, he could have purchased and kept the boat in Florida where the max tax (if you really want to get pissed off) is $18,000 I think it is regardless of cost of yacht. So there you could buy a 160 footer for 50 mil and pay just 18k in taxes. But then to flag it U.S. you'd have to pay your employees by American standards and not get away with ripping off your employees as could the Trump Princess flagged offshore.
Now, to be ever so fair, it should be noted that Donald Trump gave the gay killing Sultan of Brunei all those millions of dollars for that Trump yacht before the Sultan instituted sharia. But then, so did the Clinton Foundation accept donation before sharia; again, just as did Trump boat-buddy up to the radical Islamist.
Meanwhile. all this talk about Trump and yachts made me think of one of my favorite boats, the Trumpy (no relation, thank God). So I go to google one for kicks
YIKES. Oh noooooos. Now even my google image search for Trumpy boats has been ruined. A sure sign from Poseidon that he'd ruin everything.
I don't believe this. First time this ever happened on this search for trumpy, damn it:
ICK!!! YIKES!!!! What the fuck is that!!! That's not a Trumpy!
Now THIS, this is a Trumpy. Ain't she gorgeous:
& back in my youth I used to party on this Trumpy. Sails under a new name now. Still so perdy!
