Nassau
« on: December 21, 2008, 03:54:29 pm »

Came into Nassau a couple of days ago to see this little baby alongside belonging to our Mr Abramovich.  Check out here:

None of us could even afford one of her launches!!

Something not quite right with this amount of money in one persons hands.

I took a couple of shots of more normal stuff as well.

Nice Gin Palace! when I was a kid I worked briefly at Brooke Yachts, where they built boat/ships like that they did Bransons boats for the Atlantic races. They had private individuals who would come and spend up 50 million on a custom built boat.. just unimaginable wealth.. another world O0

I mentioned in the post Stav, it belongs to Mr Abramovich, of Chelsea football owner fame.  That amount of money is obscene when you compare it with the millions who still live in tin huts, have no medical care and can't even get a drink of clean water.

Nice boat though, but I have a much bigger one to play with!!
