60ft vessel that was featured in Baz Luhrmann’s 2013 film The Great Gatsby is for sale next month as part of the Garage Sale Trail, The Daily Telegraph reports. A movie-star yacht is priced at $1.85 million. She will also be listed on eBay.
Built in 1924, The Hurrica V has undergone a seven-year, $4 million restoration, led by owner Steve Gunns, who bought it in 2001. But Mr Gunns, 66, did not have time to enjoy the yacht, docked at Newport, and he was using the event to try and attract a buyer.
The boat cost $10,000 and was built in 1924 for Melbourne man William Oliver. She served as a search and rescue boat in World War II with the hull painted grey and a machine guns added to its cockpit. As for the accommodation, the yacht sleeps 8 people and has two bathrooms.
