“Saturday Night Live” stars and Shaolin natives Pete Davidson and Colin Jost are behind the mysterious purchase at auction of the John F. Kennedy, a decommissioned ferry boat.

The pair, in partnership with Manhattan real estate broker and comedy club owner Paul Italia, spent $280,000 to purchase a boat that most ride for free.

The article goes on to state the following:

Italia, who spoke exclusively to The Post on Thursday, said the trio had “grand plans” for the vessel.


“The idea is to turn the space into a live entertainment event space, with comedy, music, art, et cetera,” Italia explained, adding, “We’re in the early stages, but everybody involved had the same ambition — not to see this thing go to the scrapyard.”

The report explains that the New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services had recently decommissioned the nearly 60-year-old boat due to mechanical issues, and notes that currently, it won’t even move under its own power, although it is still structurally sound.

The new buyers now have just 10 days to get the vessel out of the St. George Ferry Terminal, and are in talks with multiple shipyards in the area as they try to find a spot where they can have the ferry towed to.

NYC DCAS tweeted earlier this week, “Ever wanted to own a Staten Island Ferry boat? Well, here’s your chance! Through our @nycgov surplus auctions, this baby could be yours. If a used ferry doesn’t float your boat, check out the wide variety of other surplus items available to purchase.”

On Thursday, NYC DCAS announced, “SOLD: $280,100. The rest of you will not be owning a Staten Island Ferry boat. Sorry.”
