I was looking for a juicy story! Like he had a new woman he was trying to impress. Or it was in a movie or something.

Cost to fly a 46 Cigarette from NY to St Tropez door to door is about $75000. ( plus $5000. trucking from miami to NY). We recently shipped a 46 Cig by ocean freight at a cost of $30000. for the ocean freight, plus the trucking from Genoa to St Tropez at a cost of 17000 Euro (about $25000. for a 3.5 hour drive each way and 8 hrs at the port. This would be a good place to start a boat transport business there) 30 day delivery by ocean freight and 3 day by air. In the big picture air is a good deal and less chance of damage in transport.

We used to fly Gancia & Ebel, both later named Super Hero 38 & 46 back and forth to Milan regularly from JFK. Back in 1990 it was about $75,000 each way.

I came across a story of a 50 Sea Ray that was shipped in a similar way overnight.

350,00 for a full plane so it sounds like 75,000 for the boat which prob had a list price of close to 900,000. for people who can buy things like that and air freight it hen yes its not that much to me it would mean retireing when I can still get around or being to old to enjoy life
Kept the Bullet and the condo and joined the cig 20 restoration club.

Must be headed to Dubai. My brother was over there a month or so ago and was amazed at the wrecked cars on the side of the road. Expensive cars crashed and then just left on the side of the road.
Thats crazy money there.
