Rick Wright’s sailboat for sale

Posted September 28, 2017 by Floydian Slip

A boat lies waiting for you … if you’ve got £450 to spend.

Evrika, the Nautor Swan 65 yacht that once belonged to Pink Floyd’s Rick Wright, is for sale.

Built in 1982, Wright bought the vessel in ’84 and owned it until his death in 2008. He lived on board the boat while he sailed the Greek islands during his hiatus from the Floyd following “The Wall” and before regrouping with David Gilmour and Nick Mason for “A Momentary Lapse of Reason” in ’87. It’s only had three owners in its lifetime.

While Evrika has been refurbished, it still retains many of its original features. The interior, at least, is entirely original.

Sale of the vessel is being handled by Berthon International Yacht Brokerage of Lymington, U.K. Contact Sue Grant at sue.grant@berthon.co.uk and see more details on the Berthon website.

Wright’s passion for sailing is referenced in “A Boat Lies Waiting,” a song on Gilmour’s album “Rattle That Lock.”

David Gilmour suggests new album, tour in the works

Posted September 6, 2017 by Floydian Slip

In a new promo video for his upcoming “Live at Pompeii” film, David Gilmour suggests a new album and tour may be in his future.

“There are several songs that are close to being complete, which didn’t make it onto this album,” he says, referring to 2015’s “Rattle That Lock.”

“(But) I can’t see myself doing another tour with making another album first, and that takes me a while. It took 10 years last time, and I’m really hoping — without making any promises — that it won’t take 10 years this time, that I’ll get back in and start working again. And following that, yeah, I’ll be out again.”

“David Gilmour Live at Pompeii” shows at cinemas across the world one night only, Wednesday, Sept. 13.

The performance will be released as a 2-CD set, Blu-ray disc, 2-DVD set, Blu-ray and CD deluxe edition boxset, and 4-LP set on Friday, Sept. 29.
