  • Madoff Yacht Auction

    Three yachts once owned by convicted Ponzi scammer Bernard Madoff hit the auction block Nov. 16, 2009. The U.S. Marshals Service seized the vessels on April 1, 2009, and hired National Liquidators to auction them off at its Fort Lauderdale, Fla., facility. <p> The largest of the fleet is The Bull, a 55-foot 1969 Rybovich that has been meticulously restored. The cockpit was designed for tournament anglers with a fighting chair and a bait prep center.

    It might not be a Park Avenue apartment, but the cabin is at least spacious and gives you plenty of room to spread out between fishing expeditions.

    No Italian marble in this practical bathroom. Just make sure you don't flush any stolen millions down the toilet.

    Sticking with the aggressive, optimistic Wall Street bull theme, next up is the Sitting Bull. This was Madoff's 38-foot, 2003 Shelter Island Runabout.

    With a long and narrow hull footprint and a level ride with very little bow rise, the Shelter Island has excellent speed and a soft ride.

    The Down-East-style yacht provides the look and feel of a classic lobster yacht, but with a sleeker and lower-slung profile and far greater overall performance.

    If The Bull or Sitting Bull are too big for you, consider the Little Bull. This 24-foot Maverick 2400 is an inshore and coastal fishing boat with a clean and unobstructed layout for maximum functionality for anglers.

    The boat is well suited to fishing with several anglers and it comes equipped with a leaning post and rod holders, low profile bow rails to reduce snags while fishing, and a T-top for good weather protection.

    And to travel to your yacht or yachts in style, consider Madoff's Mercedes Benz CLK 320 convertible.

    With 12,827 miles on the odometer, this car still has plenty of good years ahead of it.

    While there might be plenty of Mercedes convertibles on the road, how many were owned by a man who is responsible for losing billions of dollars in investors' savings?
