Woodman is buying a new yacht

 We received the info that 1) GoPro founder Nicholas Woodman purchased a new Amels yacht and 2) that he already owns or owned the Amels 180 Step One. We are not sure.. It could be that he was the original owner of the yacht Step One and that he sold her in 2015 and now ordered a new yacht. It could also be that he bought Step One in 2015 as second hand yacht and that he now ordered a new yacht. The yacht Step One was put for sale, which could indicate that he is replacing her.
