It wasn’t just lavish parties that Clyde Campbell is alleged to have spent big on. The Sunday Age has obtained photographs of the luxury boat and private plane at the centre of a court battle between the former car executive and Fiat Chrysler Australia.
Court documents allege that FCA paid more than $500,000 for a “mobile floating outdoor billboard”, but the money went on a 40-foot Chris Craft boat (pictured) purchased by a company called My Alfa Romeo, which is owned by Campbell’s wife, Simone, and Crown Resorts Executive Ishan Ratnam.
Note the little reg flag on the back – it’s an Alfa Romeo flag. That, apparently, is the “outdoor billboard” part of the deal. Court documents also allege that FCA paid $191,192.89 for “production and delivery of Alfa Romeo outdoor advertising” and a “yearly site subscription fee” to Andrew Vukosav Photography.
The writ alleges “neither [media agency] Maxus nor the applicant received services from Vukosav Photography” and Fiat Chrysler “suspects that Campbell used the money towards the purchase of a plane”.
That plane, in Alfa Romeo livery, is pictured, with photographer Andrew Vukosav.
The Sunday Age has been told Fiat Chrysler Australia is seeking to seize both assets.
