Two unemployed young Frenchmen found themselves in hot water on the French Riviera when they "borrowed" a luxury yacht and took it out for a spin in the middle of the night.

The pair, a 20- and 24-year-old, traveled Friday from their hometown of Douai in northern France to the Riviera resort of Antibes, but did not have any money, the Nice Matin newspaper reported.

Needing somewhere to stay, they spotted an unoccupied yacht, the $1.86 million Pharaon, and clambered aboard.
