white people problems

That Newport Beach is full of douchebags is not exactly news, and what a perfect example….

At 216 feet from stem to stern, the Invictus is a colossus of a yacht, complete with a gym, a theater and a dining room table that comfortably seats 20. And when billionaire developer Rick Caruso’s mega-boat pulls in and out of Newport Harbor in the coming weeks, it will dwarf the cabin cruisers and sailboats that typically bob on the waters here. Even the long-running Balboa Island Ferry will be a speck in comparison.

But the pending arrival of the Invictus and a second yacht, the 130-foot Marama, is also testing the patience of some Newport residents who say the massive vessels — even as temporary visitors — will be a nuisance and possibly lead to other large-boat owners making Newport Harbor a port of call.

“Once they see them there, they’re going to go nuts,” said Lido Isle resident Judy Rosener, predicting the reaction once the boats anchor in the harbor. Neighbors Pamela Whitesides and Judy Cole, whose condominiums face the open water where Caruso’s boat will be moored, said their effort to keep the Invictus from parking in front of their homes has been fruitless so far.
