The name of Joanna (Goldie Hawn)'s luxury yacht in the movie was the "S.S. Immaculata". The boat was portrayed by the vessel "Attessa", and was also used for the film Indecent Proposal (1993). DVD sleeve notes have said "the 130th Stayton yacht, bedecked in crystal chandeliers and velvet cheetah upholstery, was docked in Fort Bragg's Noyo Harbor". The vessel had a Kong & Halvorsen hull from 1984, was called "Yecats" at the time Overboard (1987) was filmed, was renamed "Huntress" at some point, had a small helipad on the aft deck, and was later lengthened to 142 feet. The Kong & Halvorsen '130' 'Yecats' yacht was later destroyed in a fire, but the crew and passengers all survived. See more »

I want you to take on some of your grownup responsibility.
I earn the money, that's my grownup responsibility.
Are you aware that Joey can't read? And Travis only reads smut magazines? I can never get him out of the bathroom.

They don't need another bathroom, they need guidance from you.
Hey hey hey, ...

This is a comedy that doesn't suffer from time or repeated viewings. It has all the trappings of a true classic. The cast, Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russell, Edward Hermann and Roddy McDowall all put in good performances. The 4 child actors all do very well, too. The story is a funny one and it keeps me laughing. All in all, a very funny movie. I own it and will throw it in the DVD player every once in a while.
