The “Stugots”, the boat made famous by the cult-classic series The Sopranos, has been listed for sale in Stamford, Connecticut with United Yacht Sales broker Paul Ouimette. No longer called “The Stugots”, the current name of this 1999 Cape Fear 47 Sportfish is “NEVER ENOUGH“.
This is not the first time the iconic sportfishing boat has been listed for sale. “My client purchased this Cape Fear in 2016 mostly because he and his family love to fish,” said Paul. “Of course there is a cool factor to having the boat that was in The Sopranos and makes for a great conversation piece. People want to experience a piece of television history.”
There are many misconceptions online about what boat Tony Soprano owned. In fact, Tony owned two boats throughout the series – The Stugots I and The Stugots II. This Cape Fear 47 is the first Stugots from Season 1 of the show. The Stugots II came along in Season 2 and was a 55-foot Ocean Yacht built in Egg Harbor, New Jersey.

United Yacht Sales is no stranger to selling famous boats. In February of this year, UYS broker Joe Longobardi sold “SEAFOOD“, the 60-foot Striker sportfishing boat from the movie Caddyshack. It was listed for sale at $350,000 in Maryland, but is now offered for charter or as an AirBNB in South Carolina.
