Newport Beach Man Ordered To Move Antique Boat Out Of His Yard

NEWPORT BEACH (CBS) — A judge has ordered an Orange County man to set sail or face fines if he doesn’t move the 72-foot antique boat in his yard that he’s been restoring for years.

Dennis Holland has been working on the antique Ketch in his yard in Newport Beach since 2006. Holland had a permit for his restoration project, but it expired last year when he refused to give a completion date.

Neighbors and city officials thought the boat was an eyesore and sued to have it moved.

A judge is now ordering Holland to move the old ship, but Holland told the Los Angeles Times the vessel can’t be moved.

If Holland doesn’t move the boat from his home by April 30, he faces fines of $1,000 a day or jail time.
