GOAT on a BOAT

Tom Brady rolled up to the Buccaneers’ Super Bowl parade in his new $2 million boat

February 10, 2021

This year we learned something interesting about Tampa Bay: Instead of taking to streets to celebrate their pro sports championships, miring traffic and shuttering local business, the revellers of "Champa Bay" tour the canals and harbors of the new greatest sports town on earth instead, partying in the true Michael Scott booze-cruise spirit. We saw this when the Lightning won the Stanley Cup back in October and it would have been the same for the Rays had they not inexplicably pulled Blake Snell in the middle of Game 6. On Wednesday, however, it was the Buccaneers' turn, and they took to the high seas as expected. But while the defensive line rocked and rolled just as they did on Sunday, it was Tom Brady who once again stole the show, pulling up in his brand-new (and very blue) $2-million-dollar yacht . . .

Sorry Boston, that ain’t no duck boat. Instead it’s a 55S from Dutch yacht maker Wajer, which Brady named “Viva Va Vida” after Gisele’s conservation charity of the same name. Brady reportedly took delivery of the mutli-million-dollar cruiser just before Christmas (almost as if he knew?), making it one of just 10 Wajer vessels currently operating U.S. waters. Clocking in at a roomy 55 feet, the GOAT’s boat is powered by three 435-hp engines and features joystick operation, push-botton dock fenders, a swim platform, a cabin for five, and of course that custom royal blue finish. Brady reportedly purchased the vessel with the express purpose of cruising around the byways of Tampa and docks it in nearby St. Petersburg.

All in all, not a bad way to spend a February afternoon in Florida. Just don’t spill that celebratory avocado smoothie on the leather, Tom. That sh*t won’t come out.
