The Inside Scoop on the 140-Foot Luxury Yacht Spotted Fueling Up in New Bedford Harbor
The New Bedford waterfront often gets visited by multi-million/billion-dollar yachts, super yachts, and even 500-foot cargo ships.
On Thursday, a luxury charter by the name of King Baby docked by Pier 3 around 8 a.m.
The 140-foot yacht was scheduled for a fuel-up at Sea Fuels Marine. The job took just about three hours to complete, and the yacht took in 8,000 gallons of diesel. The estimated cost for this one fuel-up comes out to a whopping $50,000 (at $6.21/gallon), which is the average price for a new Mercedes, Lexus, or Land Rover.
OK, the price was $49,680 to be exact, but who's counting?
According to the fuel attendants down at Sea Fuels Marine, the flashy vessel's next stop is Montauk in the Hamptons. No surprise there after the price tag on their gas fillup.
King Baby departed the harbor at 11 a.m. sharp.
The inside of this beast comes with five cabins that can host up to 10 guests. Yes, this is a rentable charter that will cost you just about $200,000 for a week. It comes with nine crew members.
What $200,000 Gets You and Your Crew
How about your very own water slide, four paddleboards, two inflatable kayaks, two Yamaha Waverunner jet skis, fishing and snorkeling equipment, and so much more.
Built-in Amenities to Make Life a Little Easier
So, just how big is this yacht?
It's big enough to have an elevator to take you from floor to floor. Of course, what's a yacht without a hot tub? Relax and soak up the good life in a waterfall Jacuzzi that comes with a swim-up bar.
Here is open-sea luxury to make just about anyone jealous.
"King Baby is both inviting and provoking," the yacht's website boasts. "Thanks to her stellar onboard atmosphere, you may walk on the yacht, but you’ll strut off when you leave ... always wanting more."
