The Boys Are Back in Town

Vince, E, Turtle, and Johnny Drama partied for the cameras in Miami earlier this year during an Entourage shoot aboard the megayacht Usher in Miami. The movie will pick up where the popular HBO television series left off. The final season took us where we knew we’d be going-Turtle was searching to justify his own existence. Vincent was searching for self-awareness. E was searching for Sloan. Drama was searching for a reason to live. Ari just wanted his family back. We also knew that everything always works out for Vincent Chase and his gang of bros. (Although Ari’s life can go either way).

One can only imagine what Doug Ellin has in store for Vince and the guys, but it’s obviously off to a good start. Stars from the show gathered aboard the yacht to stage a party with bikini-clad and topless babes, in other words, business as usual for the Brooklyn Boys. It was originally thought that supermodel Kate Upton would be cast for the female lead in the upcoming movie, but it looks as though Danish model Nina Agdal who was pictured on board the superyacht with the rest of the cast, may have landed the final role.

The yacht used in the shoot was the 154-foot Delta Usher, part of the collection of the yacht ownership club Fleet Miami. Usher’s weekly base rate is $175,000 for 12 guests. She is a standout on the charter market thanks to her chic Polynesian decor, impeccable service staff, and full range of amenities including an elevator and top deck party-sized hot tub, bar and BBQ. . We’ve highlighted Fleet Miami in our Little Black Book this month.

There’s no word about whether the boys or their longtime cohort, Ari Gold (played by Jeremy Piven), shot any scenes indoors, but the party scenes on deck looked like a heck of a lot of fun. We’re hoping they don’t cross over into the bacchanal that took place onboard a yacht during The Wolf of Wall Street, but, of course, aboard a boat that used to be called Mr. Terrible with the Entourage crew, anything is possible.

Monaco Took My Breath Away

On the first day of Monaco Yacht Show, I have to admit, it was quite overwhelming. This wasn’t Southampton Boat Show. This was altogether a different scale. There were hundreds of brokers, suppliers, designers and builders showcasing their wares. The marina was full of Super Yachts from 40m to 300m. Seeing them in the magazines you forget how large these are. Some were three stories high. The word yacht seems like the wrong word to describe these ships.
