If you’ve ever spent the day at Clifton admiring the rolling blue waters and the megayachts in the distance, now is your chance to snatch one of these beauties and allow your inner billionaire to run wild.
Everyone knows that OneDayOnly features some of the craziest discounted products. From air fryers to hunting shirts, there’s a little something for everyone looking to save 80% on their favourite products.
Well, how about saving around 90% on that megayacht we were talking about. For only R10 million OneDayOnly is basically giving it away.
Unfortunately, the “deal” coincides with the least trusted day of the year – April Fools Day.
And while you may have enjoyed a good chuckle at the thought of getting a mega discount on a Clifton-esque yacht, the April Fools joke actually has a humanitarian purpose behind it.
While you may not get your yacht, the “deal” is a campaign to raise money for the crisis happening in Ukraine. The funds will go directly to the Gift of the Givers Foundation, the NGO that has been going above and beyond to help those in need by gathering essential items such as medical supplies.
There are various options for those looking to donate, including R50, R100, R200, and R600.
Despite the very important reason behind the joke, in true OneDayOnly fashion, they decided to have a little fun.
“It’s 140 metres long and jam-packed with the kind of luxuries only Autocrats can dream of. If you’re not welcome in Europe, no problem with a range of 7,000 miles you can sail the world with 40 of your Oligarch Mates in this floating resort.”
Alluding to Russian President Vladimir Putin perhaps? The Russian President to said to actually own the 140-metre-long superyacht named Scheherazade, as per Business Insider.
The write-up also critiques the South African government’s silence on the Ukraine-Russian conflict.
“You can even sail it from the Crimea to South Africa, where you’d be sure to get a warm welcome from your old Comrades.
You could even host them for a ‘not an invasion or war at all’ party (BOYB),” it reads.
Here’s a little sneak peek into what you could have received if the deal was real:
