Some of the biggest boaters in the biz are making headlines again.
If you’re unfamiliar with the burgeoning Dutch brand, Wajer yachts are about the sleekest thing on the water. They’re not cheap, either. Price isn’t a huge detractor for Brady, who signed a $50 million contract with Bucs when he first moved to Florida, but you’re not gonna see many Wajers down at your local launch ramp.
Then there’s MrBeast, beloved YouTuber and millenial influencer.
MrBeast, real name James Donaldson, had modest beginnings to his boating career — most notably hosting a hysterical competition with his pals to give away a 1985 Bayliner Ciera. Hey, we all start somewhere.
But the Beast has also come down with footitus recently. It started last week with a video depicting him and his friends touring yachts ranging from $1 to $1 billion. Honestly, we had high hopes for the $1 yacht, it seemed like a bargain. Until it sank. But it also explains where Donaldson’s footitus kicked into high gear — because he turned up this week with Tom Brady aboard a $300 million superyacht.
During their hangout, MrBeast gave Brady a challenge.
“I want to see if you can hit my drone out of the sky with a football,” MrBeast challenged. No way a 7x Super Bowl champion is backing down from that.
“If I hit the drone on the first try, maybe I should come out of retirement,” Brady offers. We wouldn’t say no, maybe it’ll help him afford another boat.
Brady’s daughter Vivian, however, was not as optimistic about his father’s chances, and Brady agreed, saying “I probably will miss.”
Such humility. But it’s like tossing to Gronk on a slant into the corner of the end zone. Brady isn’t going to miss.
As you would expect, Brady drilled the drone from the aft deck with a perfect spiral on his first throw. He then hits one of MrBeasts friends on a PWC with a perfect long ball. It’s not the first time he’s tossed a ball from the back of a yacht. Classic Brady.
Come out of retirement, Tom.
