Yesterday afternoon while enjoying some time on the water with some friends we were surprised to see a glimpse of the largest yacht most of us had ever seen. At 6 PM last night The Invictus arrived into Newport Harbor. This is the largest boat ever to cruise the waterways of Newport Harbor. It stands 5 stories tall and is over 216 ft long (or the size of a 20 story building).
This newly completed boat has been in the news for the last couple of months as it was coming to Newport Beach for its christening. This yacht is owned by real estate developer and billionaire Rick Caruso.
I have been out on the waters here in Newport Harbor for the last 20 years and always love looking at the big yachts. I have to tell you this dwarfs everything else in the harbor. It is truly amazing. It will be moored on the west side of Lido for a couple of months and it is a must see. We will be taking our duffy out again this weekend to go get a closer look and will snap some photos and add them to this blog soon.
Dave helped us buy our first home this year and we wouldn't have been able to do it without him. He made the entire process much easier on us than it should have been. Dave is extremely responsive, a great negotiator, and real knowledgable about the OC real estate market. In mid 2013 he got us our home for lower than the listing price which was unheard of during that time. I've referred several friends to Coastal Real Estate Group and wouldn't hesitate to use him for my next home purchase. - Jonathan S.
