    Yachts. I wander why they are always painted white.
    Why not… I don’t know… red?

    • Thomas says:

      White has the best UV-protection (ultraviolet light from sun) and that’s a major problem on boats.

      You can see that UV is a serious problem on sunny states to cars too: Red ones are quite soon very faded while white is still very good. Different pigments have different UV-resistance and red is one of the worst. At least for now.

    Porsches, yachts, rolex … so typical. Where’s originality?

    Amazing what happens when the iron curtain comes down and capitalism goes in to effect (emulating (older) America).

    Too bad we can’t get other countries to follow suit, like cuba, venezeula etc…. iran…. the world would be a better place for all.
    (Oh yeah, AND America. Drop this phony, plastic banana socialism we have and go back to good old capitalism and raise everybody out of the poverty of socialism)

      What about America’s poverty? It may not be as abject but it still exists. The way I see it, worshipping an ideology and being blinded by it is a fault both the West and East should quickly learn to overcome.

      • Thomas says:

        Good point. George should see the distibution of property in the US first: top 1% owns 42% of everything and the majority, 80% of the rest own 7%, all put together.

        I’d say it’s not much different than in the Russia now: “the nation” might be rich, but 80% of the people don’t own anything.

        “Anything” being a relative term, I admit that, but capitalism is made by rich for the rich for stealing the money of ordinary people (the riffraff). That’s the ideology. US now is a glaring example for that and EU isn’t far behind: EU leaders are stealing 120 billions from citizens (and only poor ones pays taxes, so all of it is taken from poor people) to “save Greece”, i.e. half a dozen German and French banks, not Greece.

  5. Alex says:

    They make them white so they yellow well under the sun, so you have a reason to buy a new one and enjoy the show like this one.

    we can eat each others”

    I just love that new boat smell!

  8. yeahman says:

    white reflects heat the best.

  9. Russian Fan says:

    Look at that horrible floor. lol.

  10. Paul Mills says:

    Better for reflecting sunlight/glare from water perhaps? I dont know either

  11. YJ says:

    Good setting for James Bond movie. Beer shaken not stirred.
