M/Y Yes in Clements Creek

According to the New York Post, Jacob “Jack” Antwerpen, of Annapolis,  has been arrested for having unlicensed weapons on his 126′ yacht “YES” in the East River. Antwerpen has a waterfront residence on Clements Creek.

A 69-year-old man sailing a 110-foot vessel on the East River was arrested Wednesday and hauled off by cops after they discovered a cache of unlicensed weapons in a locked vault under the deck, sources said.

Jacob Antwerpen, a car dealer from Annapolis, Md., was heading to Boston with a crew that included his wife and daughter on a boat named “YES” when the Coast Guard stopped him for a safety inspection near the White­stone Bridge on Wednesday.

He admitted he had the guns, prompting a call to the NYPD’s Harbor Unit. Police seized a revolver, rifle and two shotguns from the safe.

Antwerpen is well known for his auto dealership commercials and his tag line “Jack says yesss.”
