Positive Carry

devaneyyacht1.jpgIt’s really disheartening to hear about consumers cutting back on spending when they should be, if anything, ramping up ridiculous, unnecessary, horrifically indulgent purchases, as if to say S a D, Nouriel Roubini. And yet they’re not, particularly in America because a. people here believe in this mythical “recession” and b. people here are pussies. Pussies that could learn a thing or two from the superwealthy in Eastern Europe, Russia, the Middle East, who currently snapping up not just yachts but thirty million dollar “megayachts” while John Devaney quietly weeps on his twenty-five foot power boat. I encourage every DealBreaker reader to get out there and pick up one of these things, whether or not you think 6,500 square feet of interior living space, 3,500 square of feet exterior space, and 15 bathrooms is a bit much. It’s not about you, it’s about the economy. If Jimmy “I’m Doing It For The Greater Good” Cayne can man up and start buying White Widow by the barrel, you can do this.

    You can see me tonight at JFK, wearing my green “Economy!” sticker while purchasing a ticket to Buenos Aires. Only the finest leather jackets and cuts of cow for this fella.

    I guess this lends more credence to Anal_yst quitting his day job to sell yachts. I got some friends in Moscow, should you ever pursue that venture…

    @ BSD
    …Every day it sounds like a better and better idea…
    btw Positive Carry @ $35mil, while having a very cute provenance, is pushing the limit when you can get a 150′ Christensen for ~$20-25m slightly used

    I love this picture almost as much as the Sender/Beeker monitor extravaganza. The sheer smugness of his expression plus his suit aboard a yacht named Positive Carry – it just slays me! Put this one in the redesigned websites Picture Hall of Fame. I would buy a punching bag with this guy’s likeness.

    Smelly pockmarked foreign types need much bigger boats to impress girls enough to ignore the stench of garlicky stilton and the moon-like complexion and actually get nekkid with them.

    His pose in that picture indicates he’s trying to hide a semi or full-on

    Anal_yst,
    Wallypower 118 – what’s your take on it?

  9. Posted by Anal_yst | February 22, 2008 at 12:36 PM

    @ BSD
    Unless your an aspiring Bond Villian, I’m not so sure the Wally118 would make the best primary yacht.
    Of course if you’ve already got a more ‘traditional’ boat in your fleet, wtf go for it, I mean what else is even really in the same category, a Sunseeker Pretador 108, and even then its not even really close in terms of the impact they make.
