Presidential Perks: The President’s New Yacht


Ed. Imagine the Husky Lady in the Montlake Cut on game days!
Well, not really for the the new Udub Prexy … but maybe a good idea? How about Paul Allen giving one of his yachts to the new Prexy?
Here is a precedent we could follow:


The boat is 53.7 metres long and 9.5 metres wide, has a swimming pool on the top deck with an artificial waterfall and a Jacuzzi for six people, a barbeque spot.

The vessel can reach 18 knots (33.3 kph), has six VIP cabins for 11 guests and 12 crew members. The yacht was built in 2009 as part of a Yachts & PaoloCaliari project, the interior was created by J G Verges Design.

It was rented out to those wanting to “take a luxury cruise of the Mediterranean” for €285,000 a week, according to Turkish sites advertising the service…. (The) President’s property management’s press-secretary Viktor Khrekov (said), “The yacht is supposed to have everything that the president might need for work and rest, talks and meetings, the president may use it during the 2014 Olympics.   Khrekov stressed that … the boat was acquired at the second-hand market in order to save budget money: “If you buy a new one, it will be more expensive.”


Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, on the other hand, has not had a yacht since writing off Britannia in 1997.
