I am not really a yacht type of girl. That’s probably due to my aversion towards plastic, fiberglass and tackiness. I am more of a classic wooden boat type of girl. Not that I own a boat or want to own a boat but if I’m forced to go on a boat I would prefer it to be wooden, s’il vous plaît.
However, I have to say that I am pretty sure I would enjoy Valentino’s boat. Also, Yolanda and David Foster invited me on a spectacular yacht a couple of summers ago that I loved. Why? Because inside, it was mostly woodpaneled. It was like a traveling house on water. But other than that, I am not into yachts.
I love the wooden boats. There’s something so classic, so stylish and so chic about them. I am not any expert but I just sort of know what I like. I think they are called Chris Craft, Hacker-Craft, Frauscher, Riva or something like that.
I spent a wonderful afternoon on a Chris-Craft boat in St. Tropez with my father’s friend, his wife and their friend the actor, Seymour Cassel. Remember him? We packed a wonderful picnic lunch and drank rosé wine. This was very exciting for me because here I was drinking alcohol at age 19 legally! We anchored the boat in front of Brigitte Bardot’s house. How’s that for a table with a view!
Do you think that I have exhausted Provence/south of France/French Riviera/Cote d’azure? I’m not bored with it yet so I’m going to keep going. Sorry.
A tout á l’heure!
