A recent New York Times piece brought attention to Senator Marco Rubio's purchase of a boat after he received $800,000 from a book publisher. The Times stated:
But at the same time, he splurged on an extravagant purchase: $80,000 for a luxury speedboat, state records show.
Exactly what make and model was this "$80,000 luxury speedboat?" It was an EdgeWater 245CC. Just like the one we reviewed in the video below.
To some, that might constitute a "luxury speedboat", but the Huffington Post's Ryan Grim broke down the differences. In any case, the EdgeWater 245CC is a fine boat that's fit for everyone from hardcore anglers to boating families, and yes, even United States senators.
We want to know what you think, boaters. Is Rubio's boat purchase an "extravagance" and a "luxury speedboat" as reported by the Times? Join the discussion on our Facebook page!
