I was perusing Craigslist this morning completely randomly when I came across an ad that I thought was pretty funny, a giant yacht in Sag Harbor that is for sale for $179,000. Normally on Craigslist you find pretty odd ball items, like books or used beds or things like that, so I had to read on. The ad reads:

The ad also mentions that the owner of the boat invested more than $100,000 in repairs to the boat.
I’m impressed with this. Sag Harbor is classing up Craigslist! I have a feeling thought that I could find a better place for these guys to advertise their boat…
