ATLANTIC OCEAN – Yacht customer and wealthy industrialist Arthur Houndstooth Pennypacker III, and his 22 year old Brazilian lingerie model wife Isabeli, are outraged over their recent $2M purchase of a recreational ship that, unbeknownst to the couple, was on fire. The couple purchased the yacht from 3rd Yacht salesperson Salata, who upon delivery of the shrink-wrapped boat to the couple’s private Miami port, neglected to mention that it was currently aflame. The couple told reporters that after their initial demo and purchase, they received Salata’s green card in the mail prior to the delivery. However, the card contained no mention of any current fires, flames, or blazing infernos.
3rd Yacht management is becoming concerned that delivering flaming yachts to customers may have a serious impact on cancellation rates, and are even considering revising the company’s ‘You burn it, You buy it’ policy.
The unique problem-solving opportunity for Salata has forced him to extend his on-the-job training from 3 to 4 weeks, while simultaneously and unfortunately causing him to fall one ship short of hitting Mom’s Week.
