Film producer David McKenzie is the owner of the yacht Illusions.

.

McKenzie heads the Associated Television International, which is known for productions as Laura McKenzie’s Traveler and Masters of Illusion.

.

He is married to American author, television personality Laura McKenzie.

.

His yacht Illusions was built by Versilcraft in 1991 and is listed for sale.

.

McKenzie and his yacht are making headlines, as US media report that National Rifle Association (NRA) leader Wayne LaPierre borrowed the yacht to shelter for threats.

.

During an NRA bankruptcy deposition, the head of the powerful gun-rights group acknowledged sailing in the Bahamas with his family as a “security retreat” in the summers following a 2012 school shooting in Connecticut and a 2018 massacre in Florida..

.

There is some controversy as McKenzie’s company has done business with the NRA, but LaPierre did not mention the trips on financial disclosures.

.

LaPierre states that he did not think using the vessel violated the NRA’s conflict-of-interest policy because the summer sailing trips with his family were for security.
