Rupert Murdoch's hanging out on his 183-foot sailboat, in Alaska, reportedly with Mel Gibson; Sarah Palin is probably there too, chattin' n' cuttin' deals. But why not rent this beauty for your own sexy trip? Just $310,000 per week.
The boat was designed by the French designer Christian Liagre, according to a listing tracked down by CityFile, accommodates 10
and is a patriotic Mexican citizen. Someone forward this listing to Murdoch underling Glenn Beck, pronto!
(In the pics that CityFile found, the boat looks to be flying a Swiss flag, so like Murdoch's political preferences, this ship's allegiances may shift at a drop of a hat.)
(UPDATE: A more seasoned/sophisticated maritime observer wrote in to inform us that "the Mexican flag is a courtesy flag — when you sail in foreign waters, you fly the civil ensign of the host country." Obviously, Gakwer Media needs its own yacht, to avoid this sort of ignorance.)
(UPDATE 2: And it's an Italian ensign anyway. Forget we mentioned it! We've changed the headline.)
The boat is named Rosehearty; Murdoch has a North Shore home by the same name, which can also be rented for six figured if you want the full, 360-degree conservative media mogul experience. Here are some luscious shots of the interior, perfect for impressing pretty, possibly single Alaskan governors, via CityFile.
The land-based Rosehearty.
