If you think losing your phone out on a drunken night is bad, imagine having to watch your yacht become fire wood. Ironically named, The Polar Bear, a $17 million yacht went from icy-cool to an inferno when it caught fire while in California’s Chula Vista boatyard. There’s no information on how exactly the luxury boat [...]
Experts have warned English port authorities that a 30 year-old abandoned ship could be about to land on Britain’s shore.
It’s the rich man’s ultimate fantasy – to be far removed from all the poor people back on dry land, while you cruise into the sunset on your fully equipped, luxury ship.

Things have been moving at a rapid pace. Just as we recovered from the news of the Clifton Trawler pizza delivery making the London Metro newspaper (here), we get hit with an escalation in their fame – that they have now made the Wall Street Journal (here)!

The rope snapped – just as it did yesterday – and it occurred to all at 2oceansvibe Media, that the crew (and dog) on board might be feeling somewhat peckish. So we did what any self-respecting [...]
It’s a great moment for the BEACH WATCH website, as they have the infrastructure that allows us to watch the stranded Japanese trawler LIVE on the net. We’re not 100% sure when the salvage operation will get underway – but you can keep an eye on things using the live Clifton beach webcam. You can [...]

Venture capitalist, Peter Theil’s dream of an artificial island utopia for tech start-ups is inching closer to reality off the coast of San Francisco. Riding a wave of investment capital from Thiel, the project has a name – “Blueseed” – and a website, as well as a lengthy lineup of tech companies that want to get on board.
Superyachts are one of the things that we hold sacred, here at 2oceansvibe – and part of the reason why we play the overseas lotteries on a weekly basis. It is therefore something of great distress for us, when we learn of the sinking of one of these fantastic beasts of the sea – especially [...]

I may have rushed to get to the moral of the story with the headline there. I’m sorry. It’s just that I got so excited because the HMS Invincible is for sale!
