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.
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. (Courtesy National Liquidators)
