Hey Raouf, at least you have a nice boat built in England! I guess your aggressive style is resulting in people losing their jobs? Now they get to breathe in the intoxicating aroma of the unemployment office. Nice work sir, well done! When Raouf Halim, 43, sits at the helm of his $1.7-million, 64-foot Sunseeker, he breathes in an intoxicating aroma of saltwater and new leather. It's the same Italian leather, he says, used in Bentleys. "What I love about the boat is that it's very consistent with my style: aggressive, fast-paced, technology-oriented," says Halim, chief executive officer of Mindspeed, a company that produces semiconductors for Internet equipment. The 16 pages of custom specifications he ordered for his yacht, handcrafted over 15 months in England, included high-end navigation systems, hideaway plasma TV screens and meticulous cherrywood and birch detailing.
