Betsy DeVosís $40 million yacht set adrift by vandals

A $40 million yacht owned by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was reportedly untied from the dock at a northern Ohio marina and set adrift.

The captain of the 163-foot yacht, named "Seaquest," called the Huron Police Department early Sunday morning when the crew realized the boat was floating in the Huron Boat Basin, The Toledo Blade reported.

The yacht hit a dock, causing between $5,000 and $10,000 in damage, the newspaper added, citing a police report.

Investigators are hoping surveillance footage will show who untied the yacht from the dock.

It is one of 10 boats owned by DeVos and her family, according to the newspaper.

It is unclear why the Michigan family's boat was in northern Ohio, the Blade noted.

DeVos is one of the wealthiest members of President Trump’s Cabinet.

Business Insider reported in February that DeVos and her husband, former Amway CEO Dick DeVos, have an estimated net worth around $1.3 billion.

If I was a voter that didn't vote for TRUMP in 2016, I would vote for TRUMP in 2020 just for this incident right here!

What do you mean by that?

I seem to remember some verbiage in there about reserving judgement to God.

The 40M yacht keeps middle class skilled folks employed. Something to keep in mind.

"...unmoored yacht..."


Good job with “resisting” the administration, leftwingers. So incredibly reckless.
That unmanned ship could have crashed into someone, something, or even caused a fatality.

Not sure about that but if wasn’t okay he could always just walk off the boat.

You know, I just can't see Jesus being ok with you in your $150,000 home.

The people who built and sold it are okay with it, and they need jobs and income.

If you can affo5rd a yacht of this size, you usually have a full time captain, and probably at least one mate, to maintain it and see that it is sailed safely. One would expect that the crew was onboard when the boat was set adrift. Presumably asleep?

I can’t say I speak for Jesus, but I suspect he would frown on jealousy.

I used to fly a Hawker for an Amway distributor. Talk about sucking up Jet A for no reason..........Operating costs were about $3K per hour. His jet set days were brief. Lasted about 6 months. I think he was thinking of doing charters and all his operations would be a cost of sales. A tax dodge that never was.
