Also why does Fox News call it an "abandoned" yacht ? Doesn't look like the owner left to me.

It's super stupid, but yeah, it's just corny fun. And the chick is hot.

They should have made a second one though. It's not like they were going to do a disservice to the original.

Does it look "cleaner" than the rest of the interior? Perhaps it is the radio of the guy taking the pic?
