Anyone want to buy a haunted yacht?

Owner of yacht which Natalie Wood died on 28 years ago puts it up for sale claiming it's 'haunted' by West Side Story star


The owner of the yacht where Natalie Wood spent her final moments has put it on the market after claiming the actress still haunts the decks.
Ron Nelson bought The Splendour in 1986, five years after the West Side Story actress mysteriously drowned off the coast of Catalina Island.
But now, 28 years later, he has revealed the force of Wood's spirit is too strong, forcing him to get rid of it altogether.

Really....?? He's owned it for 28 years and NOW it's too haunted? Me thinks I smell a marketing ploy. He just wants to sell it and thinks creating this hype about it will up the price.

That's soooooo Hollywood.

Yeah I don't buy it, esp after the bottom recently became "soggy" Sounds like an extensive refit in the near future.

A ghost ship eh?

Well me hardies, I warn ye to take heed and watch this video about a couple buying a ghost ship…before you buy one to go ghosting along on a full moon night…

It contains a good lesson in refitting a yacht, and in the "deal too good to be true."

A "Must See" film for any yachtie, especially on Halloween.
