At 164-feet long, 31-feet wide and almost 500 tons, this is no ordinary yacht. Welcome aboard "The Boardwalk", Houston businessman Tilman Fertitta's luxury ocean vessel and favorite toy.
The $40 million yacht has 12 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, grand salons, and a true chef's kitchen with steamers, warming drawers, and walk-in fridge and freezer.
The master suite features an owner's office, opulent bedroom with space to spare, and a gorgeous bathroom.
No expense was spared on the outdoor space either. "The Boardwalk" boasts multiple decks, lounges, scooters for land excursions, and an even a helicopter pad.
Fertitta, his family and crew travel the world on the yacht. Some of his favorite stops are the Bahamas and the Mediterranean.
"It's one of those things I always wanted and I'll always have. It isn't cheap, I can tell you that," Fertitta said with a smile. "But every time I walk on it, I tell myself, 'God, I love this boat.'"
Landry's CEO Tilman Fertitta will host the 2017 Mardi Gras Royal Court on his yacht Friday evening before his San Luis Salute gala. Then Saturday, Tilman and Landry's invite you to watch the Knights of Momus Grand Knight Parade at 10:30pm on ABC/13.
