British luxury yachtmaker being bought by Chinese, much to the annoyance of posh racists
Poshos will be all of a flummox when they find out that a Chinese property group is going to be buying Britain's biggest luxury yachtmaker, Sunseeker. Once again, a little piece of their nation is being carved up and sent abroad, which is funny because posh people are all thundering bumwads.
The firm, who have shown off their wares in James Bond films and have sleb customers like Simon Cowell, Eddie Jordan and Nigel Mansell, is going to be bought by Beijing-based Dalian Wanda for around £300million.
Wang Jianlin, chairman and founder of Dalian Wanda, told the Financial Times: "We bought the best yacht company in the UK."
A spokesman for Sunseeker said that the buyout will be a 'significant investment' but insisted 'one thing is for sure, Sunseeker will remain a British brand'.
Even though it won't be.
China has been buying loads of big British firms recently, gobbling up MG Rover, Weetabix and Birmingham City football club. They'll be buying the Queen next.
