Eddie Jordan's new yacht


Recommended Posts

That's a nice looking yacht +++


This kind of thing makes me bloody proud to be British - marine engineering at its best.


His last one never got delivered to him.  I used to see it most days as it say in the harbour at Poole.  Claimed to be a super-fast boat, but it wouldn't get above 18 knots when it was in the water.  Shame, because that was a bloody handsome thing.

You know what, as lovely as that is....a yacht/boat holds absolutely no appeal to me whatsoever.


Not even a £5,000 dinghy.  Or a £32m superyacht, or the type that Abramovich has.


I like seeing them, but I was to win Euromillions and pocket £50m tomorrow, a yacht wouldn't even be near my shopping list.


A private jet is something else...

Oh, I'd have a boat in a heartbeat over a private plane. Except I probably wouldn't on the basis of their extortionate costs to run.


What am I talking about - I've got a boat. It has an open air deck, an inside, is quite fast and moored in one of the nicest water locations around - on the Thames in Richmond.

Given the wealth required to run one of these, let alone buy it, I still don't think I would, i'd just rent, same with private jets, I don't get that either, just rent one when you need it.

Just goes to show how much money is in F1 really, I read somewhere that it has a higher turnover than football, baseball and basketball combined.

So, a handful of top drivers earn close to twice as much as the very top footballers but get to the back of the grid and they're on the same as top League One players - and that is probably paid direct by sponsors.
