Along the Jersey Shore, there is a yacht charter hotel called Queen Nefertiti that once belonged to a Hollywood movie legend who allegedly lost her in a card game.
Where else would we find such a gem, but on Airbnb. Moored at Somers Point is the 2-bedroom, 1-bath Queen Nefertiti which costs around $ 400 a night.
Here is the legend behind this yacht that Airbnb describes as ‘a vintage yacht brought back from the dead’:
“It was allegedly owned by Hollywood actor James Cagney and then lost in a card game against an heir to the Elmers Glue fortune. He has changed hands several times since then ”.
The owner reportedly bought the Queen Nefertiti a few years ago and decided to restore the ship to its former glory, turning it into a yacht hotel which he now rents to tourists.
Come on, James CAGNEY? It’s Hollywood’s old ‘White Heat’ baby! ‘Yankee Doodle Dandy,’ Smart Money ‘. Like, the celebrity of the golden era!
