The Famous Boat From ‘Caddyshack’ Is For Sale
The only thing cooler than owning a yacht would be owning THIS yacht.
Are you in the market for a new boat? Probably not… but IF you were, what boat could be cooler than the one Rodney Dangerfield drove in Caddyshack?
Yes, that famous boat:
The boat is a real 1979 Striker yacht, one of just eight of its kind constructed in South Korea between 1979 and 1983. Known as “Big Dog” (not Seafood, unfortunately, as in the film), the sea boat is a memorable part of one of comedy’s great classics. Anyone who loves “Caddyshack” is sure to remember the boat well.
And now it could be yours!
The boat has been listed on YachtWorld by Reel Deal Yachts, and it will set you back a cool $129,000. It is 60 feet long and boasts a twin diesel engine, as well as a master stateroom with ensuite master head with separate shower stall, a guest stateroom with twin berths and private head and shower, and a bunk room. It also has a Large flat screen TV, Princess 3 burner cooktop and Corian countertops with built-in sink.
So what do you say? Are you ready to go yachting?
The sale of “Big Dog” is not the first time that a piece of classic Hollywood cinema has been up for grabs. The famous home from “Home Alone” (located in Winnetka, Illinois) sold for $1.585 million in 2012. Can you imagine if you got to call Kevin McAllister’s crib your own? Although, I think I would probably be scared Marv and Harry were gonna show up!
Speaking of being a scaredy-cat, what if you lived inside the home from the horror movie classic “Nightmare on Elm Street’? The house that was Nancy’s crib (1428 Elm Street) recently sold for $2.1 million. (And, no, it is not located on Elm Street! It is on 1428 North Genesee Avenue in Los Angeles).
Illinois is also home to another famous 1980s classic. Cameron’s house from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” is located in Highland Park, Ilinois, and it sat on the market for FIVE years before it finally sold for $1.2 million. Hey, I guess people were scared that Cameron’s moody ghost was haunting the joint.
What do you think? Owning a piece of Hollywood would be pretty cool!
