McCain Boarding a Luxury Yacht

McCain Boarding a Luxury Yacht

Presidential candidate, Senator John Mc Cain has been reported to have been on a luxury yacht in Montenegro near Kotor, Croatia last year. In fact reports are that Mc Cain went aboard no other than Raffaello Follieri’s yacht charter the very day after Follieri plead guilty to multimillion dollar fraud.  The super yacht involved is a beautiful 1979 Feadship luxury motor yacht called Celine Ashley.  More detailed pictures of the yacht are below.

THE NATION (, considered the oldest US weekly, and which considers itself as a “forerunner of the leftist policies”, ran the McCain Story and photograph.  Here’s what they said:

“In the photograph, taken in Montenegro at the end of August, McCain is shown boarding the yacht ramp towards the smiling Follieri and Hathaway. Just ahead of McCain and shaking hands with Follieri appears to be Rick Davis—McCain’s top aide and now co-manager of his campaign, who accompanied him on the trip and advised the government of Montenegro. A few months after McCain’s yacht party, Follieri strengthened his ties to McCain’s orbit by retaining Rick Davis’s well-connected Washington lobbying firm, Davis Manafort, and offering Davis both an investment deal and help in securing the Catholic vote for McCain’s presidential bid.”

It is also reported that this photograph showing McCain in late August, 2006, celebrating his 70th birthday aboard the luxury yacht.  The megayacht had been chartered by Raffaello Follieri and his a list movie star girlfriend Anne Hathaway.

In the current edition of Vanity Fair, Michael Schnayerson reportes that Follieri rented the charter yacht Celine Ashley for the whole month of August 2006 in the Mediterranean.  Also, Montenegro’s leading daily newspaper, Vijesti, earlier said that during John McCain’s visit in 2006 he celebrated with birthday cocktails and sweets aboard the Celine Ashley luxury yacht.



John McCain is the Republican candidate to become the President of the United States of America. He is running with Sarah Palin, Govenor of Alaska for the 2008 election for the USA Republican political party.  His rival is the Democrat candidate Senator Barak Obama.
