Bored Monkey NFT holder opens boring yacht club on French Riviera
The owner of one Bored Ape NFT seems to have decided it was time to fill the empty, spacious and luxurious yachts on the French Riviera with laughter and joy. With the ‘Bored Ape Yacht Club’ being the most successful NFT of all time, there will be plenty of people on a physical copy of the yacht. Well, Jad Kumir, owner of several businesses, including yacht charter, has stepped in to become the new crew captain on the Bored Ape Yacht Club.

The early bird gets the worm
The proud owner of “BAYC #634” decided it was time to build the Bored Ape Yacht Club on the shores of the Mediterranean. John Blackie, whose real name is Jade Comer, took his pseudonym from his digital monkey. The man admits he has a lot to thank for cryptocurrency: “Thanks, I was able to buy my first yacht,” says Mr. Kumir, who revealed that he started investing in cryptocurrency in 2014.

Club members greet Mrs. Amanda
It should be noted that NFT enthusiasts will not be required to own a Bored Ape NFT to join the yacht club on the French Riviera. Alternatively, they can join the waiting list for “Bored Yachts Club” NFTs, which will output 8,200 NFT passes in three different tiers. The NFT air is expected to be taken down by the end of the year.
Besides, Bored Ape Yacht Club’s realistic project serves a dual purpose. “It is amazing how much space you have in this business,” explains Mr. Kummer, referring to the fact that not everyone can buy a luxury boat. “The idea is to bridge that gap – you have empty boats and people who can’t get to those boats.”
Furthermore, Bored Ape Yacht Club members will be able to choose a charitable cause to direct all funds from yacht bookings. Once Lady Amanda is booked, the first 30m boat to be operational, NFT holders will be welcomed. The ship is filled with water cannons, cool furnishings, a sauna and a waterslide. Certainly nothing to be bored here.
