You'd think that for someone who’s owned more than a dozen craft ranging from speedboats to megayachts, choosing a yacht name would be easy. But John Rosatti actually had a heck of a time with his newest prize, a 162-footer from Christensen Shipyards. He knew he wanted the name to reflect his enjoyment of the cruising lifestyle. After all, he’d christened two previous yachts Take It Easy for that reason — same for Nice N Easy. Rosatti wanted a different take on the theme this time around, but the right words just wouldn’t come. He kicked around the simple Easy for a bit, but ultimately it didn’t speak to him.
Funny how things have a habit of working themselves out when you least expect it. One day, while he and some friends were gathered aboard his last yacht, the 157-foot Christensen Nice N Easy, they started reminiscing. Remember when we did this? one friend began, going on to relate a fun event that had occurred on board. Everyone began nodding and smiling at the recollection, and soon more friends started chiming in. Remember when we did that? Another would say; the storytelling and reminiscing went on and on.
Suddenly, it hit Rosatti: Remember When.
It’s an especially fitting name when you realize that Rosatti enjoys regularly entertaining aboard and wanted Christensen to build him a yacht largely similar to Nice N Easy. He spent the past five years cruising extensively aboard her (launched as Liquidity in 2005), both stateside and in the Mediterranean. This, he says, gave him an appreciation for the yard’s workmanship, as well as the layout of its semicustom yachts. In fact, in his estimation, Christensen offers “one of the best boats built in the world.” He’s partial to its reliance on composite construction too, due to the lower maintenance required.
