Rich Boat Owner 'Forgot' About His Docked Luxury Yacht

For 2 years, a yacht abandoned in a Swedish harbor was the subject of much speculation, many a story, and finally a search for its owner. If you owned a hundred thousand dollar yacht, can you imagine docking it somewhere and simply forgetting about it? For 2 years, a yacht abandoned in a Swedish harbor was the subject of much speculation, many a story, and finally a search for its owner. Well, thanks to a Facebook campaign, local police found him, and also finally solved the mystery of why it sat there unattended for so long. According to the owner, he'd forgotten about 100-thousand-dollar vessel. When he was finally located and told that he'd left his yacht behind, the proprietor told a local officer that he could have sworn he'd sold it. That, however, is not the only incredible part of the tale. All the time it was docked, its keys were hanging from the deck railing, in plain view. Not once did anyone take it, not even out for a brief joyride. Despite the fact that it's been ignored for years, the yacht is said to be in pretty good shape. Now, all the owner needs to do is pay the mooring fees, which are assessed daily so will likely be significant, and sail the boat away. It's not believed that coming up with the cash will be a problem for the man.

Cool beans Tharin but in your case - I would classify your 1975 Ketch as a sailboat not a luxury yacht? The issue we are having is the title of the story is implying that this 34' cabin cruiser is a "luxury yacht".  My only point was nothing below $100K is considered a LUXURY YACHT. It might be considered a yacht for insurance or title but it isn't an Azimut, Galeon or Sunseeker with 4 berths and 2 cat's for $1M+
Tharin 4Prez
Tharin 4Prez - 3 years ago
+Mr. Anderson
Somehow I knew you would follow up with a long ridiculous retort. I'll be sure to let my titling company know they may be in danger of committing fraud by registering my 'boat' ('75 Gulfstar 43') as a yacht. After all, I only spent $27k to buy her, then another $39 on a makeover, currently appraised at $110k ... that's far below a Million I know ... and the living space only pushes nearly 300sf of cabin space. The deck is of course larger, but who wants to hang out on deck, right?

She was rebuilt in Annapolis where I had her parked all of last year. Then in early November we floated her down to Panama where she's currently docked in Amador Harbor. I will have the name MINE painted on her butt next week. And damned if I forgot to hire a captain to drive her down to the canal.

Yes, we live in Panama.

NO SHIT SHERLOCK. You mean a $1mil jet boat is not a yacht!???? I just built the network for a ship building company last year and know EXACTLY what a yacht is. You cannot buy a used yacht for $100k. Be hard to find one for $250k used unless it needs a ton of work. On average a builder will tell you that a yacht will cost roughly the same or more as the home of the person buying it. On average thats about what a buyer spends, and the home of a buyer is normally at least $1mil. Most of them have also owned many boats in the past and are 50 or older. You have to realize these people are buying a boat instead of another home or 5+ exotic sports cars or a plane. Yachts are also classified by range, power, and storage capacity, not just size. Living space is a small part and more implicit. Its the other things you need to stay on your yacht for a long time without leaving that add much of the cost including quarters for the help which is normally only 1 person that cooks and takes care of the work. Usually doctors and lawyers married together will have a yacht and employ someone or a business like a Marina to take care of it. One doctor alone unless a specialized surgeon or something crazy for decades cannot afford a yacht on their own. Only a small percentage are owned by super rich. Most are owned by couples who pay them off over the course of a decade or so. Also, most of the owners have spent years on the water. If they didn't, they would buy all the other crap you can get for the same price as a yacht.

I have family in the Marine Surveying business BTW who deal with these things sinking, sometimes intentionally for insurance payouts since the yachts stay parked by most owners and are hard to sell for more than 60% of what they cost new. I am about 40 miles from the Atlantic.

+XtagoGaming. Are you a nitwit ? anything under 20 tons would be a yacht. so you are saying a 14 foot running about would be a yacht. where did you come up with that 20 ton figure , you must have pulled that right out of your ass. there are yachts that weigh 10 / 20 times more than that and they are called yachts. And what does a dry dock have anything to do with what we are,talking about here. the definition of a yacht is subjective, most people that own a 50 foot boat and this boat is much smaller than that ,would not consider their boat a yacht but a lot of people with smaller boats would consider it a yacht just because they could not afford it. when the FBI arrested Nicky Scarfo mafia boss out of New Jersey / Philadelphia they had a picture of his 40 foot Silverton in the paper that they called it his yacht. I laughed because I had the same boat and never in my wildest dreams would I consider my boat yacht.
so don't break my balls, I'm betting you never owned a boat in your life and you only want to give your uneducated opinion.

Most of those boat clubs are pretty tight nit , while they may not know everyone there, A boat not moving after a few holiday weekends people would take note, and if there was so much as a towel hanging on the rail it would be big news around the club house. What I find strange about the story is do they normally keep the docks in the water all year round ? Never seen anyone leave small pleasure craft in the ice.

I know of a yacht that had been left in a lonely cove in Sri Lanka for over two decades by its owner. Probably an European, Australian or an American. Several years before I swam and boarded it, but found the doors were locked. So no access to the cabin area. Locals say that it had been brought there and left by a white man more than 20 years ago. Anyhow nobody knows who that white man is. Now the Sri Lanka Navy keeps an eye on it probably till someone comes to claim the yacht. It is anchored there safely. The deck and the superstructure are in fairly good condition but the hull below the waterline is very badly covered with barnacles.

Moving a boat is not like driving down to the local convenience store.
You must make plans, check weather and tides.
Fuel, batteries and safety gear must be checked.
Engine compartment must get vented.
The captain must be qualified.
Even if the keys were there you would be a fool to try to just take it.

+Børre Børresen -- Mechanical and electronic sensors can malfunction. Using your nose and using proper ventilation systems are what any prudent mariner would do; relying on some machine to tell you there is a problem is what lazy boaters do. As for your comment about "a fuel leaking death-trap like you want in your boat," go fuck yourself.
Børre Børresen
Børre Børresen - 5 years ago
if didn't start it would be because something was wrong... gasses does not come of themselves but are caused by something like leaks, thats the reason sensors are to be installed.

so i would rather have an safe boat that informs me if anything is wrong than maybe blowing away the signs of a fuel leaking death-trap like you want in your boat
SeikiBrian
SeikiBrian - 5 years ago
+Børre Børresen -- So you'd have a boat that you could never use because it wouldn't start? I'd rather have a boat that works after simply running the vent fan for two minutes.
Børre Børresen
Børre Børresen - 5 years ago
+SeikiBrian well, i guess it comes with how lazy and unrestricted the building and certifying of the boat is. i would to be concerned if i needed to vented every time  mostly because if gasoline and leak it would not start as its by law dated over 30 years back is to have gassleak-registers direct connected to the starter.
another thing is that boats have to be built so that gasses escapes by its own and the fuel-tank need to be certified. if not and the boat is not allowed for sale here.
if something where to happen and its not certified it will be zero insurance payout and if anyone dies and you have built the boat yourself or modified it, it is then automatic classified as premeditated murder and you will be in deep shit.
but then again... finding an cabincruiser of that size here with not an Diesel-engine is like finding the needle in the haystack. pay 80cent the liter for it or up to 2$ for the gasoline...


i would be far more concerned though if it uses a LPG\LNG based kitchen as that stands for more than 85% of all the fires here,,. would say its not enough regulations when it comes to building those systems.
have seen an brand new 400K $ 38' Flybridger gone up in flames next to my work because of those systems... the protective plastic was not even removed from glasses. 
SeikiBrian
SeikiBrian - 5 years ago
+Børre Børresen "engine compartment vented? seriously, is that something that have to be done every time over in the US?"

Yes, every time if it's a gasoline (petrol) engine, because gasoline vaporizes into heavier-than-air explosive vapor that can accumulate in the engine compartment, bilge, etc.  And it's not just in the USA; any prudent mariner anywhere in the world will ventilate a gasoline-powered boat before starting the engine(s).
Børre Børresen
Børre Børresen - 5 years ago
+Lucky Dog always somewhere to run in an hide if bad weather over here. problem is that if you not known on the seafloor where you are you are guaranteed to run aground because its a rock\ground on every corner...
tides is like max 45cm in Skagerrak. depending on fuel and how long it have been laying you can get problem with the diesel only because of those pesky microbes, and 90% of all in-boards are diesel here...
engine compartment vented? seriously, is that something that have to be done every time over in the US? o.O
but then again US-spec engines are all banned from use over here so it might be something with that.
if you born before 1981 and its below 50 fot it rock'n roll and just drive. born after 1981 and older than 16 and you need to take a license that will cost you 2 evenings and 200$

No one paid the slip fees for a year and the boat didn't have a lien placed on it and sold at auction WOW !!! I've owned boats by whole life and something like that would have never happened in the States.

Americans are incredibly greedy, In the states if you keep your boat at a privately owned marina and you're more than 10 days late on slip fees they automatically place a lien on your boat and tack on several 100 dollars in late fee's and lien fees for the first month. If after after 30 days you haven't paid the slip rent and the additional late fee's and lien fees which by now are substantial they will scheduled your boat to be sold at auction then they will chain your boat to the dock and lock you out of the marina.

At the end of 90 days your boat will have been sold at auction unless you managed to have paid all the outrageous accumulated late fees and slip fees which will by now will have accumulated to several 1000 percent of the monthly the slip fees.

If you ever visit the states do your research and make sure you avoid private marinas that don't have well established reputations. It's best to stay at government run municipal marinas and public docks. Government run marinas are required by law to follow international maritime lien sale procedures. This prevents them from unethically manipulating lien sale laws to steal your boat and sell it to their friends for a fraction of its value like private marinas often do .

Of course not all government run marinas are run ethically you still need to watch out for small town city marinas especially throughout Texas, the south and the inter-coastal water way as they can be as bad as private marinas. Most of these small town marinas do what ever they want regardless of the law, you mainly find this in predominately conservative anti government states who don't believe that federal law and maritime law based on international treaties apply to them.

I know a boat owner who was seriously injured in a car accident while on vacation and was in the hospital for 2 months, By the time he got out of the hospital the marina had already sold his boat at auction. Whats really scary is that even after selling his boat he still owed the Marina several $1000 dollars in fees.

The boat was sold at auction to a friend of the harbor master for a fraction of what it was worth. They literally lien sale'd a $50,000 sail boat for $500. To add injury to insult not only did he lose his boat in a lien sale but he still had to pay the marina several $1000 dollars in late fee's and lien fees on 2 months back rent.

Even though it's illegal, this doesn't stop unethical private marinas because they know they can get away with this. The victims are usually on vacation and not a locals. The marina owners know it would cost the owner more to recover his boats then it's worth. I've seen this same scenario played out 100's of times all across the US. That's why I pay my slip in advance.

The boat´s owner is a Norwegian guy, and in Norway this boat is worth at least 100 000 USD. It´s a shame that a person can "forget" a boat like this. The engines might probably have been frosen during the winter, and that can be quite expensive to fix.The freshwater system as well.So i guess it´s not i that good shape.

Everybody keeps expounding on "he forgot", the owner states that he thought he sold it.

When I was in aviation we had a vintage Korean era jet trainer "Fouga ,iirc" land and taxi up. The guy looked shaken up and said the jet about killed him. It was towed into a hanger and sat for close to 3 years with NO information on the owners. We parked it in such a way nobody could sneak it out. Then one weekend 2 men showed up. Worked on it and got it running. They paid up hanger fees and the jet took off and disappeared to the north leaving a trail of thick black smoke. Now that I think of it, it was not uncommon at all to rent hangers for planes only to find out later they were filled with exotic cars,helicopters,vintage motos.

Actually there are yachts sitting in boat yards from dealers gone bankrupt, owner deaths, and those who can't part with their dreams of sailing around the world. they are left to deteriorate till the boat yard cuts them up and sends them to the dump. I know of several that were in the boat show, didn't sell ,ownership so vague that no one could be held responsible. Was strange that it wasn't hauled onto dry land if dockage wasn't paid but probably was charged to credit card each month as most marinas require a credit card just as good hotels.

EVERY continent in the world has DESCENDANTS of slaves. India still has slave. The USA led the world in making slavery 100% illegal and granting equal rights and protection under the law for everyone. ONLY the USA has people separated by multiple generations from slavery, who dont even know what it was because they never saw it, living on government checks funded by the people who work for a living, and still throw fits, destroy their own communities, kill each other, and glorify making cash illegally while damaging the future generation of the people in their communities. USA has the most entitled morons in the world who will complain about everything no matter how good they have it. Its so blatant that their crying wolf has destroyed their ability to even get anyone to listen any longer. The ONLY people at this point that even care at all are trying to pander for political reasons, or want to submerge themselves in the echo chamber of victimhood instead of lifting themselves up by the bootstraps and making something of themselves. Seems the majority would rather live on food stamps and cry racism or bitch about slavery that ended over 150 years, or 5 GENERATIONS ago. There are MILLIONS of people in the USA who came here from countries that were persecuting them much worse in the past 100 years, who complain zero and are complete success stories and pictures of the American dream. Never seem to hear Jews complaining about the holocaust holding them back or stopping them from making something of themselves. Only entitled minorities do that who have been told since childhood by liberal morons they are victims, even though there is no tangible evidence to support it. They are also the perpetrators of about 90% of crimes based on the color of someone's skin while they attack and target anyone who looks different than them they deem to be racist or privileged.

Valkryie is a Ted Geary design, go look him up, his boats are highly prized on the west coast, similar to Colin archer. his boats won many races like the transpac, and lipton cup something like 16 years in a row, he finally gave away the design to the competition, because he was tired of winning.
also designed some of the best express boats of the 1920's. I'd rather have a Geary boat than a hearshof.

for 100k USD you could get one of those >50 fot old wooden things easy over here, problem is that no one wants em unless its an Colin Archer, Riva or Furuholmen and if they got its age and condition the prices can go skyhigh. but even those you can get for Ok prices if you can do some work yourself. mostly because it will cost a kidney per year to keep em floating over here. and since its so ridiculous priced for maintenance on wooden boats prices drops trough the floor unless its in very pristine condition or something very special.
(if American, old and anything else than ChrisCraft it wont sell so people that import boats like that cant get rid of em and its not unusual that they are for sale in more than 5 years before they get sold\exported with heavy losses or just "accidentaly" burns up )

some would call my boat far more "yacht"ish than this but still my 1984 model Princess 42' upgraded with lots of fancypancy stuff costed me way less than half of the boat shown in the video

You envious socialist losers always accuse anyone more successful than you, (which is generally just about everyone), of somehow screwing you out of something you never owned or earned to begin with, without ever being able to actually connect the dots on how they did it.

Piss off, you greedy, needy little social parasite.

I'm no psychologist, and would never claim to be! In fact, my MS is in economics. My previous comment was not intended as a psychoanalysis; rather as an exposition of your unsound reasoning. Since my understanding of your reasoning is narrow at best, would you care to explain what you find so distressing about people acquiring large amounts of personal wealth?

+John Smith Now you've crossed from argumentation into the arena of armchair psychologist, so unless you have a degree in psychology, I don't think you're qualified to psychoanalyze anyone, especially with such a poor grasp of the fundamentals of logic, argument construction, & rhetoric. The reasons stated are my thoughts, nothing else. You're trying to win an argument or get me to admit something based on inferred suppositions. How I feel about your treatment of your possessions (or your colleague's) is immaterial & a deflection from the original issue, so you really need to step up your game, because you argue like a junior high student.

+Regan Copple Are you sure that is has nothing to do with how much money he has? It certainly didn't seem that way when you said "This is a good example of what's wrong with people being that wealthy.". It appears that by your reasoning, anyone with considerable wealth should not have it, and anyone who does not wish to take that wealth is a "bootlicking little ass-kisser." I hate to be so late to tell you that your greed does not entitle you to what other people have earned. Furthermore, what is wrong with him not taking care of his possessions? They are, after all, his possessions, and not yours, so it has no effect on you. For example, I own a beat-up, rusty BMW 2002, and it is worth very little. Since I treat it poorly, you must have contempt for me. You must also have contempt for a colleague of mine, because his house is uncleanly and dilapidated.

+John Smith Again, "contempt for a dipshit who doesn't take care of his possessions." has nothing to do with how much money he has, & you kissing wealthy peoples' asses has nothing to do with limiting how much money someone should have, it's concerned with you being a bootlicking little ass-kisser to people who wouldn't piss on you if you were on fire. That's how brainwashed you are, & John, logic FAIL, on both counts.
Go take a logic class, learn how to construct a fucking argument, then come back after you've learned something. Because right now you wouldn't know a logical argument from a hole in the ground. This is why America is so fucked up, dumbasses like you who think you can make the most tenuous of connections between two things, & think it will stand the barest of scrutiny, don't think so.

"I think there is something wrong with kiss-asses like you being concerned with rich douchebags like that."


Do you have anything else to say?

+John Smith I really want to hear how I said anything remotely like that because it's either you putting words in my mouth or something you rectally derived. You don't have any real argument.

+Regan Copple I am not at all concerned with rich douchebags. I'm much more concerned with people like you who would seek to limit a person's wealth. Who are you to decide how much money one should have?

+StJohns River66 I don't necessarily believe that, there are plenty of people who have money who act nothing like that. Plus I object to your mischaracterization of all rich people's money as being stolen from their workers, & the way that they use it is entirely up to them. I think you've been watching The Wolf of Wall Street, but not everyone behaves like that.

I'm not motivated by jealousy, it's contempt for a dipshit who doesn't take care of his possessions.
