Some People Appreciate Boats.
People of varied backgrounds like boats. Most people who own boats have above-average incomes and may or may not be "connected."
Boats have been used in the illegal drug trade.
Boats are expensive.
Boating can be hazardous.
Boats require a great deal of maintenance.
I once read that Arizona had the highest per capita boater registration in the country. Interestingly Arizona does not have even ONE natural lake on which to operate a boat of any size.
A yacht is any boat over 27 feet in length, excluding commercial and military vessels.
The Yacht building industry is usually the first to suffer from a recession. It is also one of the first to indicate an economy-wide boom.
Some people who appreciate boats place a high value on appearances.
Others may actually need boats and/or yachts.
I think every Nazi needs a yacht for he has a higher probability of needing to sail away from his newly-found country. Nazis are generally unpopular. Nazis with yachts probably even less so.
Most Nazis are now too old to operate yachts by themselves.
Some popular people appreciated and/or needed yachts.
I find boats to generally be cramped, damp, dark, and uninviting. And expensive.
