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.
