Super yacht turns heads at Point Cadet Marina

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

A super yacht is turning heads at Point Cadet marina in Biloxi, all 164 feet of the impressive vessel. The mega boat belongs to billionaire investor and entrepreneur Tillman Fertitta.

Fertitta happens to be the owner of the Golden Nugget casino in Biloxi, which is right beside the marina.

The giant yacht has been docked here for a few days, but Fertitta himself may have arrived just Thursday afternoon. That's when the private helicopter touched down on the top deck of "Boardwalk."

A crew member told WLOX News the Westport yacht is a 2010 model. If Fertitta wants to upgrade to the 2014 model, the yacht builder has a new, 164 foot boat for sale on its web site for $40.4 million.

The marina's harbor master says "Boardwalk" may not be the biggest yacht to visit Biloxi, but it's certainly among the top few in both size and worth.

Fertitta is in town to attend the ribbon cutting and celebration at Golden Nugget, which is opening new restaurants and other added amenities.
