Even if "Just the Way You Are" suggests a level acceptance in his life, Billy Joel's less than sunny relationships with music critics, wives, and traffic laws has given him every right to have a vendetta or two. However, one of his vendettas -- a 57-foot yacht, to be exact -- will no longer be floating down the river of dreams. The asking price for Vendetta, a piece of Joel luxury lore, is a mere $1,950,000.
According to Eric Barton's report at the Juice, this purchase price is actually 50k less than what Joel paid for the vessel new back in 2005 -- and gorgeous things like this owned by famous people tend to appreciate in value, so this is probably a steal.
