John Henry Visits Mattapoisett

 

John Henry's Mega Yacht Iroquois

 

Today, Red Sox owner John Henry visited Mattapoisett (probably to see the other owner who just built a house in the inner harbor).

It was quite a sight; the Iroquois is 164 feet and recently listed at the #73 on the listing of Mega Yachts on Earth.

It was quiet day in Mattapoisett, so I drove over to Ned’s Point and shot some pics..

The Owner Takes a Wife

In case you’re not a Sox fan, here’s a long piece from Boston Magazine on this member of the “Rich and Famous.”

The back drops open to become a dock!
