Earlier this week, the House Oversight Committee fired a shot across the bow of Dan Snyder’s $192 million superyacht by posting public notice that they’ll be questioning him on Thursday. This Zoom interview—part of a Congressional probe into the Commanders’ allegedly toxic workplace culture—may not occur as scheduled. Snyder doesn’t want to testify under oath, and for weeks now, he appears to have been yachting around the Mediterranean, where a Congressional subpoena would be conveniently tricky to serve. Snyder’s endgame may be to float about in luxury until after the midterms, when more favorable political winds could blow his mega-vessel home.
So where exactly is Dan Snyder while he’s failing to appear before Congress? We’ve asked an expert: the anonymous man behind Dan Snyder Yacht Tracker, a Twitter account that uses public data to trace the whereabouts of Snyder’s yacht and private jets.
Where is Dan Snyder today?
To be fair, I don’t know his location. I don’t track him, I just track the yacht and jets. But his yacht—let me check the app on my phone—the yacht is currently off a city called Porto Azzuro. It appears to be a port on a [Greek] island. But it’s more likely that he’s in Israel. If you follow the reporting, his lawyer said he was going to be in Israel, and his jet is currently in Israel, which matches what his lawyer said.
Got it. And if he were on his yacht today, what would that be like for him?
So, the scale of these things is just huge. His yacht is, like, 305 feet. The yacht supposedly has up to 33 staff to cook for the Snyders and their guests and take care of things. It has an IMAX theater and a helipad. It seems like a great place to dodge subpoenas.
My understanding is that there is some sort of mini-yacht flotilla. Can you tell me about that?
Yes. So, I joke that his yacht has yachts—they’re called “tenders,” and there’s four of them. I’ve learned a lot about yachting in the past month, and I guess you don’t always sail the yacht right to the coast—you’ll have a little mini boat that comes out and then takes you to the coast or helps you go get supplies. So his miniature boats that are on the yacht with him are 34 feet long, which, you know, to the average person is basically a yacht. It’s a 34 foot long boat—it’s pretty large.
Do you consider yourself a Commanders fan?
I grew up watching the team, and I’m a fan, but not so much…
