Big boat gets a big bill: Tax charge of $395,826

After months of persistent questions about the taxation of megayachts, the Charleston (S.C.) County auditor has sent a $395,826 bill to famed Lowcountry litigator Ronald Motley, owner of the 156-foot-long yacht Themis.

Themis, worth an estimated $15.3 million, was until recently among the 100 largest yachts in America.
