    $721,000/25000 = $28.84  that’s cheap labor!

      $721,000 is what he owed, not what is into it. He had been making payments then stopped.

    what do the u.s. marshals have to do with selling a boat?

      I think it’s because of litigation between the boatyard and the buyer in federal court.

    $3.69 million and the boat still isn’t done? Too rich for my blood.

    If Obama wins another term, companies that need rich people–like this one–might as well fold up. With guns pointed at ‘millionaires & billionaires’ by Obama, none of them want to call attention to themselves with a yacht.

      So they have to pay taxes at a lower rate than they did during their God, Reagan’s years.

      Why is it that normal working humans are so worried about their wealthy brethren? 

    • Wait, are you suggesting that Lyman Morse are the beneficiaries of money “trickling down” from the wealthy?  That’s not possible, they supply too many good paying jobs.  Job creation is just a myth of the trickle down economy…

  • I like how they scotch brite’d the varnish to make it look like the interior’s in rougher shape than it’s in. Trying to keep the bids down. I’m pretty sure that most millionaire’s don’t want their boat sitting outside in the weather no matter what stage of production. Standing water on the deck of a new construction? Tacky. I doubt a new buyer would keep it at this facility the way it looks like it is being taken care of.

      Yeah…. it does look that way. If they can get it for $500,000 and sell it for 3.69 million finished, thats a good days pay! and they only advertised it in local maine papers.

    I believe it is a Deerfoot yacht, not a Deerfield.
