New Bull Mascot For M/Y Embark

Friday, March 06, 2009

Every other year, the M/Y Embark, a 112 ft Coda Casa, pulls into Bradford Marine's Fort Lauderdale shipyard for refit and repairs. On this past world tour, Embark has spent time cruising the waters of North Europe, the Mediterranean, Greenland, Iceland, Canada, down through the Panama Canal and back up to Alaska only to cross the Pacific to Japan and back again.  With a hard-working program, the yacht earns her time in the shipyard with Bradford Marine.

The Embark is the fourth yacht for this owner, following the Taurus I, Taurus II and Taurus III, each named after the owner's astrological sign.  Being from Chicago and quite the Bulls basketball fan, he had the idea to have the team’s logo painted on the vessel's bulbous bow for good luck.

When the paint department at Bradford Marine was asked if they had someone who could paint the famed bull, Phil Boyle suggested Greg Zarzycki, head of Bradford Marine’s Security Department, who has a special artistic flair.  Every time the yacht would come back for repairs, Greg (seen in the photo with Captain Georgio Schiano,) would again put his artistic hand to the bow to recreate the Bulls mascot image.  Upon the yacht's recent return this year, Greg had fashioned a new design for the bull with his own creative style.  The owner was so pleased with the new rendering that Greg was commissioned to grace the bulbous bow with this new, updated bull.
