Things to consider while buying a Yacht

yachtToday, there are quite a few ways in which a person can choose to relax. Some people might find it relaxing to take long walks on the beach; others might find it relaxing to visit a spa, etc. But there is one other way in which you can spend your free time which has only recently started to catch on. I’m talking about yachting. There is nothing more relaxing than being on the open seas far away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The only problem is that you will not be able to go yachting unless you have a yacht of your own. Fortunately, this problem can easily be fixed. All you need to do is buy a yacht. As far as buying a luxury yacht charter is concerned the first thing you should do is to look through magazines and newspaper classifieds to see the yachts that are on sale in your area. The first thing you will notice while doing this is that there are quite a few different yachts to choose from. You will see some people selling some of the latest yachts and you will also find antique yachts for sale. With so many options in front of you, surely you’ll be able to find something that suits your requirements perfectly. And don’t think that yachts are outside your budget either. As far as the price of a yacht is concerned, the only determining factor is its condition and nothing else.


When you are buying a yacht, you need to consider all your options. And while going through your options, there are some things you need to consider as well. Checking whether a yacht is seaworthy will obviously be a major consideration. You will also have to see how the yacht handles in deep waters. You wouldn’t want a yacht which you can’t take too far from the shore now would you? If you plan on spending a lot of time on your yacht, then you should also check out the living conditions and other facilities and equipment on offer.




Once you have found the perfect yacht it’s important that you take it for a test drive before paying for it. Remember, you will be stuck sailing in this yacht once you purchase it, if you don’t like the experience, there is no point in buying it is there? Seeing how a yacht handles is extremely important when it comes to choosing the right yacht. Test it out in different waters to make sure you will not face any restrictions as far as where you can go with the yacht is concerned. Once you are certain that there is nothing wrong with the yacht, all you have to do is pay for it and you can start enjoying the pleasures that come along with sailing immediately. I’m sure you’re dying to buy your first yacht, so don’t waste anymore time, start searching today.

If you’re not careful, what was meant to be a vacation day is now a day of turmoil, draining, unhealthy boundaries.

I started thinking, wow, if you’re going to extend an invitation for a person to spend time with you on your sailboat or yacht you had better really fancy them or get along with them.

On Class Warfare in America: The Yacht Mentality Revisited

We see this vividly in his symbolically dense poem that comes close to being allegory in its one-to-one application, or depiction, of the tensions governing the relationship between the oligarchy of the economically privileged (shall we call them them the 1%?) and the majority, marginalized working class folk like you and me.  But first the poem, then my commentary:

Poem:

The Yachts

contend in a sea which the land partly encloses
shielding them from the too heavy blows
of an ungoverned ocean which when it chooses

tortures the biggest hulls, the best man knows
to pit against its beatings, and sinks them pitilessly.
mothlike in mists, scintillant in the minute

brilliance of cloudless days, with broad bellying sails
they glide to the wind tossing green water
from their sharp prows while over them the crew crawls

ant-like, solicitously grooming them, releasing,
making fast as they turn, lean far over and having
caught the wind again, side by side, head for the mark.

In a well guarded arena of open water surrounded by
lesser and greater craft which, sycophant, lumbering
and flittering follow them, they appear youthful, rare

as the light of a happy eye, live with the grace of all
that in the mind is fleckless, free and
naturally to be desired. Now the sea which holds them

is moody, lapping their glossy sides, as if feeling
for some slightest flaw but fails completely.
Today no race. Then the wind comes again.  The yachts

move, jockeying for a start, the signal is set and they
are off.  Now the waves strike at them but they are too
well made, they slip through, though they take in the canvas.

Arms with hands grasping seek to clutch at the prows.
Bodies thrown recklessly in the way are cut aside.
It is a sea of faces about them in agony, in despair

until the horror of the race dawns staggering the mind,
the whole sea becomes an entanglement of watery bodies
lost by the world bearing what they cannot hold.  Broken,

beaten, desolate, reaching from the dead to be taken up
they cry out, failing, failing! Their cries rising
in waves still as the skilled yachts pass over.

Commentary:

When you first get into this poem it seems to feature Man vs Nature, but by l. 13 with the specifics about the crew, which “crawls solicitously,” it dawns on you that it also takes in humans pitted against one another.

If the earlier portion of the poem (up to l. 13) gives an imaginative, blissful view of Nature in relation to Man and, in turn, of Man’s inter-relationships, the latter portion gives you the awful reality masked by the seeming tranquility, or the potential for revolt from the status quo of both Nature and Man.

Mention of a “race” sets the stage for transition into a contest for mastery, initially of yacht vs. yacht, but note how the diction changes here with sinister implications:

“Now the sea which holds them is moody”

“As if feeling for some slightest flaw”

“Now the waves strike at them”

Note as well how the ominous turns into a personification of unleashed violence in what becomes a power struggle waged between haves and have nots, with the yachts metaphorized into repressive knife slashing entities indifferent to whom they maim:

“Bodies thrown recklessly in the way are cut aside.

“It is a sea of faces about them in agony, in despair.”

Williams’ subterranean intent now surfaces:  we have a revolt put down by the yachts, the poem’s symbol for connoting the wealthy, of the normally “solicitous,” or working classes, whose labor has made their wealth possible, though they’ve gleaned little for themselves, “bearing what they cannot hold.”

“…the horror of the race dawns staggering the mind,
the whole sea become an entanglement of watery bodies

The yachts, or impervious upper class, obviously win out on this particular day, but not without leaving in their wake their decimated victims:

“Broken,
beaten, desolate, reaching from the dead to be taken up
they cry out, failing, falling! their cries rising
in waves still as the skillful yachts pass over.

In sum, Williams has delivered a Marxist polemic of poignant genius in its thematic rendering of class struggle against inequity.  The very style of the poem adroitly reinforces this theme of worker repression by the economically removed in its run-on lines and skillful alliteration at poem end, the yachts unheeding of the crying wounded in “waves still as the skillful yachts pass over,” suggesting speed and, hence, indifference.  For Williams, this hierarchy “live(s) with the grace of all that in the mind is fleckless, free and naturally to be desired.”

In short, their narcissism of self-indulgence (materialism) mirrors behind its proffered beauty their willful escape from responsibility to the working classes on whom their wealth is built (“the crew crawls/ant-like, solicitously grooming them”).

In an America where 37% possesses half its wealth and the top 1% often pays minimal taxes, Williams’ poem reminds us that we have much work to do to render the American dream palpable for not just a few, but for the many.

Brimmings: up from the well

yachts3

I wanted to revisit my last post of several days ago, “The Yacht Mentality that Threatens our Economy,” with this apropos poem by William Carlos Williams, one of America’s foremost modernist poets.  As you may have surmised, it’s called “Yachts,” which I employed as my central metaphor in depicting the economic inequity rampant in our nation.

Williams, by the way, was a physician from Hoboken, NJ, who compassionately dedicated his practice to treating the poor, who were never far from his thoughts.  We see this vividly in his symbolically dense poem that comes close to being allegory in its one-to-one application, or depiction, of the tensions governing the relationship between the oligarchy of the economically privileged (shall we call them them the 1%?) and the majority, marginalized working class folk like you and me.  But first the poem, then my commentary:
