The 50ft yacht where Google executive Forrest Hayes was killed has been put up for sale in California.

 

The yacht where a Google executive was killed has gone on sale for $345,000 in California. Forrest Hayes, 51, was found dead aboard the 50ft vessel named “Escape” in November last year following an alleged heroin overdose.

Broker Richard Boland Yachts is now selling the boat, which was recently moved to the marina village in Alameda. The Alaska Flybridge 46 was built in 2006 and comes with twin Cummins 380hp engines and thermal night vision cameras.

It’s been reported that lots of people have been looking at the boat, but so far there have been no offers. Broker Richard Boland told SFGate that he doesn’t think events onboard will deter any potential buyers.

“I don’t think it will make a lot of difference. The massive upgrade that Forrest made to the electronics on the boat is what people are really looking for.”

Hayes installed a security surveillance system onboard to monitor a refurbishment of the vessel, which later proved prostitute Alix Tichelman had been on board when he died.

Santa Cruz police recently charged the 26-year-old woman with manslaughter after discovering footage of her injecting the victim with drugs and then leaving the boat when he fell unconscious.
