The 20th anniversary of Dale Earnhardt, Sr.’s death was last month. On Feb. 18, 2001, the most well-known and successful driver in NASCAR history was killed on impact after crashing into a retaining wall while on his final lap of the Daytona 500.
Dale Earnhardt’s Success Leads to Creating His Dreamboat
At the time of his death, Earnhardt’s net worth is estimated to be around $70 million. The race car driver’s successful career includes winning 76 Winston Cup races, seven NASCAR Winston championships, receiving countless awards, and becoming a celebrity in his own right.
He started up his own business named Dale Earnhardt, Inc. The auto-racing company excelled with the business eventually growing to 200 employees and including three cars in the NASCAR circuit. Profits reached approximately $41.6 million. Dale Earnhardt, Inc. eventually owned a helicopter, a private corporate jet, and a massive 76-foot fishing yacht named the “Intimidator.” However, a brand new yacht was in the works that would be used solely for Earnhardt and his family and friends.
With his massive amount of earnings, Earnhardt completely reconstructed a custom 100-foot Hatteras Yacht. He passionately put in the time and effort to help design the entire layout with all of the other bells and whistles that the impressive yacht includes. Only a few weeks from its big reveal, the highest-paid race car driver in NASCAR passed away.
The name of the yacht is “Sunday Monday.” The loving title comes from a song that Earnhardt was a co-writer on with country music artists Brooks and Dunn.
The grandeur of the yacht is undeniable. Up to eight guests can travel on the water in the lap of luxury. The “Sunday Monday” also includes five bedrooms, a refitted interior, a custom full-service “sunken” bar, the most up-to-date and high-quality electronics, an updated engine room, a sleek, brand new paint job, and other amazing amenities and detailed work.
Earnhardt Was Never Able to Sail His Custom Yacht
Sadly, Dale Earnhardt was never able to captain the beautiful vessel. The “Sunday Monday” was Earnhardt’s dreamboat. He spent much time investing in the designs and unique features of the yacht. However, his anticipation of its arrival is never to reach fulfillment. But, his family celebrated his life while on the yacht that the husband and father put much of himself into.
Dale Earnhardt Sr.’s “Sunday Monday” is currently located in Fort Lauderdale, FL. It’s available to purchase for only $4.2 million.
“I’m privileged to present to you Sunday Money. She is arguably the most famous 100′ Hatteras Motor Yacht to date. With her timeless lines, recent refit, and unprecedented seaworthiness she has to be on the top of every yacht buyer’s list,” reads the official listing for the yacht by broker Denison Yachting.
May Dale Earnhardt’s legacy live on while racing through the waters in the luxurious and legendary “Sunday Monday.”
