A major yacht brokerage Moran Yacht & Ship on Wednesday announced the sale (i.e., the signing of a contract to build) of a 65.5-meter yacht from Palmer Johnson. To date, it is the largest boat sold in 2012. However, there is definitely still time to break the record.
On the boat itself not much is known yet. The project - working title «Project Stimulus» - is so far the largest boat
A noteworthy fact to counter the popular prejudice against those who build their own yachts «and would rather people help». The Moran release said that starting to build a boat of this size would create at least a hundred new jobs at the yard alone and at least five hundred (!) more in the service companies and allied industries. In the editor's opinion - a great help to people.
