From $1.20 an Hour to This…


For the past day or so, there’s been a pretty impressive yacht anchored off of Cruz Bay. It’s called Kismet and it’s got a pretty neat backstory.

Kismet is owned by Shahid Khan. He happens to own the Jacksonville Jaguars, as well as a slew of other companies. But what makes this story cool is that Shahid’s first job was washing dishes for $1.20 an hour. So what does this mean? It means we all have a shot at getting an amazing yacht like this, right? 🙂

Kismet is 312 feet in length and can accommodate up to 12 guests in eight staterooms. It includes a full service spa, movie theater, retractable outdoor fireplace and a large swimming pool. It also has a staff of 28.
