CNBC’s “Squawk Box” will have a segment about megayachts and the Power & Motoryacht 100 this morning, and I’ll be on air with them live from aboard the Broward 120 in New York City. Estimated airtime is around 7:50 a.m. EST.
Update: Due to the sharp downturn the futures market has taken this morning, the segment is postponed until tomorrow. Stay tuned for more.
Update #2: With the futures market tanking, oil crossing the $77-a-barrel mark, and the Dow diving upwards of 450 points, no wonder CNBC bumped the segment yet again, to Monday. To quote one of the CNBC techies who was aboard the Broward with me this morning, “It’s a credibility issue. Imagine the anchors saying, ‘Well, for those of you who cashed out before the you-know-what hit the fan, here’s a $14-million yacht you can buy! Diane, over to you!'”
