The Investment Banker’s yacht

This one's floating around on email at the moment and thought it worth sharing here ..

Two investment bankers are taking delivery of a new yacht.


It's a 65' custom-built motor yacht complete with four staterooms,
a state-of-the-art galley, GPS System and radar for navigation,
twin supercharged diesel engines … you name it.

It's got everything and rings in at a cool £4.5 million worth of luxury entertainment for the weekends.

So they get to the harbour for the inaugural launch of their boat …


Champagne , chocolate covered strawberries, cream and
music dockside have all been laid on for the excited owners and a small
group of their banking friends when, unfortunately, there's a slight problem with the turnbuckle on the rigging attaching the boat to the crane …


(Note the guy in the stern) 

Finding your dreamboat nose dive into the harbour is painful enough but to be one of the two drowned rats who are sitting in it at the time is the ultimate embarrassment …


Ah well, just have to go and buy another one.
