A Salty Saga

March 30, 2010
M/Y Vivere—the elegant, 116-foot Azimut luxury yacht owned by NJIT overseer and alum Phil Rinaldi, '68—stormed across New York Harbor, threatening Staten Island this month. Fortunately, Rinaldi has not turned into a menace to society, Vivere provided the set for the forthcoming television season opener of Law and Order: Criminal Intent. As Rinaldi tells it, “The story line is an odd one: The boat's owner wants to hunt pirates off the coast of Somalia. Staten Island plays the part of Somalia and my yacht, Vivere—which means “to live”—was chosen by L&O to portray this questionable adventure. Vivere spends a lot of time cruising around Manhattan and docking at Chelsea Piers where Law & Order studios are located, it did not take Law & Order's scouts long to spy Vivere. Hence, she would temporarily abandon her gentle and sybaritic life to become a pirate hunter. The producers outfitted the yacht with turret-mounted machine guns, AK 47s, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, and a bevy of bikini-clad girls. I had no idea that hunting pirates would be so much fun.” Mark your logs, mates: The season opener launches on the USA Network March 30. >>
