Sunday Money, a yacht formerly owned by the late, great NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Sr., is on the market for $4.2 million.
The 100-foot Hatteras vessel takes its name after the title of a song Earnhardt penned with Kix Brooks of Brooks & Dunn, which the duo later recorded for the 1995 album, The Dale Earnhardt Winston Cup Collection. The album also included hits from Alan Jackson, Diamond Rio, Lee Roy Parnell, Steve Wariner, BlackHawk, Michelle Wright and Radney Foster. The album was not available in traditional record stores in 1995—only via mail‑order publications, race‑related retailers, GM‑Goodwrench dealers, TV shopping networks and various other outlets. Oh, how times have changed.
The yacht is a 2001 model, which Earnhardt purchased shortly before his death in February 2001. According to TheDrive.com, Earnhardt never sailed the vessel due to his untimely death, but through two future owners, the yacht has retained several Earnhardt-esque accents, including “the compass rose design, which was a part of the Dale Earnhardt Inc. logo, in flooring and window etchings of the boat; silver plates with a cursive “D”; and a Snap-On toolbox in the engine room.”
