Pete Davidson admits he and Colin Jost were 'very stoned' when they paid $280,100 for a decommissioned Staten Island ferry and he regrets buying it
By Joi-Marie McKenzie,
Pete Davidson and his former "SNL" costar Colin Jost bought a decommissioned Staten Island ferry.
Davidson recently said that the two were "very stoned" when they made the purchase last year.
His real-estate partner said it was planned to be an entertainment space, but Davidson wasn't sure.
Looks like we'll have to wait a little longer to party on Pete Davidson and Colin Jost's boat. Davidson recently said he had "no idea what's going on with that thing."
"Me and Colin were very stoned a year ago and bought a ferry," he told Entertainment Tonight's Will Marfuggi while attending the red-carpet premiere of "Transformers: Rise of the Beasts" in New York City on Monday night. "And we're figuring it out."
Back in January 2022, Insider's Ben Gilbert reported that Davidson and his former "Saturday Night Live" costar Jost won the John F. Kennedy, a decommissioned Staten Island ferry, at an auction. The two Staten Island natives paid $280,100 for it.
The boat was decommissioned due to "mechanical issues" and was left in "poor condition," a spokesperson for the New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services told the New York Post at the time .
Initially, the duo's real-estate broker, Paul Italia, told the Post that Davidson and Jost planned to turn the boat into "a live entertainment-event space."
Now, it seems Davidson regrets ever buying it.
When ET asked if Davidson planned to use the boat for the movie premiere's after-party, he said: "Hopefully it turns into a Transformer and gets the fuck out of there so I can stop paying for it!"
