Billionaire denies owning blocked yacht

Yuri Milner does not own the megayacht that was blocked from entering a Molokai harbor by island residents in November, a spokeswoman for the billionaire tech investor told the Associated Press.
Hawaii News Now reported that Milner owned the yacht, but his name has since been removed from the story on their website.
When asked if Milner was on the 351-foot (107m) Kleven M/Y Ulysses, at the time of the incident, spokeswoman Alice McGillion declined comment, according to the AP.
Burgess, the yacht brokerage that Milner’s spokeswoman said handled the sale of the yacht, could not provide any information, the AP has reported.
According to The Maui News, Maui Police Lt. Gregg Okamoto said that the private yacht was stopped offshore and the owners had been planning to tour the island, but about a dozen Molokai residents protested from the wharf and the owners decided to move on.
Neither police nor the state confirmed the yacht belonged to Milner, but residents who spoke with a representative from the boat at the wharf said Milner was the owner, The Maui News reported.
