Billy Bush, best known for hosting the television show “Extra” , “Access Hollywood” and also a former fill-in host for NBC’s “Today Show” has filed a lawsuit this week against a Rockport Maine boat dealer at the U.S. District Court in Portland.

According to a report by the Bangor Daily News, Bush states that Yachting Solutions, LLC of Rockport is holding his down payment for a quarter million dollar boat they can’t seem to deliver, and won’t return the down payment  of $171,474 as requested.

The boat dealer through their attorney has said that the delay is due to a supply chain issue. Billy Bush was in Maine back in May of 2021 to purchase the boat. According to the report, The purchase agreement required three payments of $85,000 with the final payment due when Bush was to take delivery on July 1st 2021.

Bush has said the company offered him another boat that was similar, but he wasn’t interested.  When he requested a refund,  a sales person indicated he would get one but has not received it so he is left with no other solution than to sue for its return.

If you are still trying to place exactly who Billy Bush is, a first cousin to former President George W. Bush, along with his brother Jonathan Bush who founded athenahealth which has a facility in Belfast.
