This is pretty interesting especially if you’re into boats, and/or were a Dale Earnhardt Sr. fan.

I did some digging up on this yacht, and found out Sr. built the yacht.

TheDrive.com reports, “The seven-time NASCAR champ ordered the luxo-barge just before his death at the 2001 Daytona 500 . . . Earnhardt never sailed the boat as it wasn’t completed until after his death, but through two additional owners, the yacht retains several Earnhardt-esque touches.”

The website also states, “Sunday Money has been on the market for more than 400 days.

According to a Charlotte Observer article, the sea vessel was built to replace a 1989 Hatteras 74 CPMY that also is on the market for $390,000. The late NASCAR legend used that yacht for deep-sea fishing.

‘NASCAR in those days was a big deal here, and it didn’t make a difference if you were a man or a woman. Miss America came one time and didn’t get nearly the attention Dale Earnhardt did,” Hatteras Yachts Customer Service Manager Baird Paschal told the Charlotte Observer, recalling Earnhardt’s visits.

Another sport-fishing yacht, called “Intimidator,” is still owned by Earnhardt's widow, Teresa Earnhardt.’” (TheDrive.com)
