According to the Daily Mail, in 2011 Mr Spielberg was fined by the Italian coastguard after his speedboat off the Seven Seas came too close to the coast and annoyed holidaymakers. Mr Spielberg, who was reportedly with actress Gwyneth Paltrow at the time, was fined 172 euros for breaching maritime regulations and coming too close to the shore.

  1. Wow! $200 million. Just keep up the good work and we will continue impressing them with the real big bucks. Believe me, they would not hesitate, (re)visiting our Islands shores. (Bermuda is still the botanical gardens of the Atlantic.)

    • JAWS says:

      Hey Bob Richards the Yacht cost almost as much as the new airport. Why don’t you ask Seven Seas owner Steven Spielberg if he wants to build his own airport in Bermuda. What….. is his money to fuzzied up!

      • Joonya says:

        Maybe Bob felt that he “had to deceive us”.. would you be happier with that Jaws?

      • Mockingjay says:

        And millions of people and children around the world are starving.

        • ann says:

          Please be quiet, do you not realize that the people on this yacht are actually spending money in Bermuda. They are paying to be here, lets welcome them! Little jealous are ya Mockingjay!

  2. Gombey Liberation Partier says:

    Hopefully we get to the point where the owners arrive with and stay on them as opposed to just the crews on their transatlantic delivery crossing stops. She looks good though.

  3. WHOA says:

  4. Green Goddess says:

  5. Yeseye says:

  6. Captain Blackbeard says:

    Aaaaarrrrrr let us sieze ye vessel and use the plunder to pay our national debt. Mates to arms!

    • Family Man says:

      LOL, the sad part of it is that even if we could get $200 million for it, it wouldn’t cover the shortfall for a single year in what we need to cover the civil service salaries and pensions.

  7. ROGER LAMBERT says:

    WOW, what a fanastic looking yacht. Hope they are treated well by the public & governtment. Keep coming here and put some $S in our economy. The Trickle down effect again.
