Carl Icahn Is Buying a Bigger Yacht


The news that Carl Icahn had decided to sell his yacht, the Starfire, set off a fresh round of fears about the economy last week. If a billionaire has to liquidate his 177-foot boat with a helicopter pad and jacuzzi and gym and staff of twelve including a personal chef, then times must be very dark indeed. But fear not: "The reason it's for sale is to buy a bigger yacht," the broker handling the sale of the yacht told the Post today. So don't worry about Carl — he is fine. (At least in the money department. You know what they say about guys with big yachts.) [Cityfile, NYP]
