Betsy DeVos' 163-foot yacht set adrift and damaged while docked in Ohio marina


A $40 million luxury yacht owned by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was untied from its mooring in northern Ohio last weekend.

The 163-foot Seaquest was moored at the Huron Boat Basin in Huron, Ohio when someone set it adrift early Sunday morning, police told the Toledo Blade.

The crew of the massive pleasure cruiser awoke around 6 a.m. Sunday to discover the vessel had been untied and eventually got control of the yacht. The boat had already sustained large scratches and scrapes after striking the nearby dock, causing an estimated $5,000 to $10,000 in damage, according to the police report.

The super yacht is registered under a Cayman Islands flag.

Cops are searching for surveillance footage from the area as the search for the culprits.

DeVos — the wealthiest member of President Trump’s cabinet — along with her billionaire husband’s family own nine other luxury boats.
