Tom Hudson who once ran the hedge fund firm Pirate Capital is auctioning off his gorgeous Caribbean estate.
Villa Whydah, named after an 18th century pirate ship that sank near the owner’s childhood in Cape Cod sits on 4 acres in a gated community in St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin islands.
The property was originally listed for sale for $35 million back in 2012, but after being unable to find a buyer, it is coming up for auction with a starting bid of only $6 million.
It is reported that Hudson spend over $20 million to renovate the compound.
The property has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom caretaker cottage that is nicer than most homes.
There are also two guest cottages and a four car garage.
There is four thousand square feet of outdoor pool and entertainment areas with gorgeous views of the island.
You have 270 degree views over the surrounding cays and can see as far as the Spanish Virgin Islands of Vieques, Culebra, and even Puerto Rico on a clear day.
It is our understanding that Hudson was attracted by the set date nature of auctioning the property off so he can pursue another project as opposed to letting the listing sit there for an indeterminate about of time.
