Yesterday's item about 'negligent misrepresentation' aroused considerable interest among our regular readers, including Michael Joyce of Hargrave Custom Yachts. Michael passed the picture we used to his advertising department who provide a perfect illustration of what a talented wordsmith can do with even the most unprepossesing material:
"Here is a rare opportunity to own a true one of a kind luxury motoryacht with historical significance. This former WW II submarine has had extensive rework in the bow section to not only improve her surface running capability but to add styling and grace as well. All systems and machinery have been substantially reworked since she was raised from the bottom, and she is truly in top condition requiring only some basic exterior cosmetics. With the market flooded with offerings from Feadship, Heesen, Trinity and others, wouldn’t you rather have something unique and special? Price just reduced from $15.0 million to $135,000 but owner is motivated and open to offers. This won’t last so call now before it's too late."
