With the ‘Bored Ape Yacht Club‘ being the most successful NFT collection ever, there would be a lot of people on a physical version of the yacht. Well, Jad Comair, the owner of several businesses, including a yacht charter, has stepped in to become the captain of the new crew on board the Bored Ape Yacht Club.
The proud owner of ‘BAYC #634‘ decided it was time to build a Bored Ape Yacht Club on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. John Blackeye, whose real name is Jad Comair, took his alias from the pirate-style digital ape that he owns. The man acknowledges that he has much to thank crypto for: “Thanks to Bitcoin, I was able to buy my first yacht”, says Mr. Comair, who revealed that he started investing into cryptocurrencies back in 2014.
It should be noted that NFT enthusiasts won’t be required to own a Bored Ape NFT to join the yacht club on the French Riviera. Instead, they can join the waitlist for ‘Bored Yachts Club’ NFTs, which will dish out 8,200 NFT passes in three different tiers. The NFT airdrop is expected to take place by the end of the year.
Besides, the real-life Bored Ape Yacht Club project serves a double purpose. “It’s amazing how much emptiness you have in this business”, explains Mr. Comair, referring to the fact that not everyone can afford a luxury boat. “The idea is to fill this gap – you have empty boats and people who do not have access to these boats.”
On top of that, members of the Bored Ape Yacht Club will be able to choose a charitable cause for all the funds from yacht bookings to go towards. Once booked, the ‘Lady Amanda’, the first 30 meter long boat to be ready for action, will greet NFT holders. The ship is packed with water guns, gorgeous furnishings, a sauna, and a waterslide. There’s certainly nothing to be bored about here.
