Pete Davidson is having major regrets over purchasing a decommissioned Staten Island ferry with Colin Jost.
The former “Saturday Night Live” star admitted he has “no idea what’s going on with that thing” when recently asked if he would host an after-party on the boat following the “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts” premiere.
“Yeah, if it’s not sunk!” Davidson, 29, joked during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

“Hopefully it turns into a Transformer and gets the f— out of there, so I can stop paying for it!”
“Saturday Night Live” stars Davidson and Jost, along with comedy club owner Paul Italia, had plans to turn the ferry into New York City’s next hottest club when they purchased the vessel.
The ferry was auctioned off by New York City’s Department of Citywide Administrative Services for $280,100.

During the red-carpet event, Davidson confessed he and his co-star were under the influence when they purchased the ferry.
“Me and Colin were very stoned a year ago and bought a ferry. And we’re figuring it out.”
In January 2022, Jost, Davidson and Italia put down a winning bid for the John F. Kennedy, a 277-foot (84-meter) vessel that shuttled commuters between the New York City boroughs of Manhattan and Staten Island from 1965 until it was taken out of service in August 2021.

Shortly after the impulsive purchase, Davidson and Jost joked about buying the boat during a “Saturday Night Live” segment.
“Hey! We bought a ferry, the windowless van of the sea,” Davidson announced.
Jost quipped, “Yes, it’s very exciting. We thought the whole thing through.”
Last April, Jost, 40, took the decommissioned Staten Island ferry for a joyride.
The comedian was photographed setting sail from the St. George Ferry Terminal for the first time since the ferry was initially purchased.
“I took this exact boat every morning at 7 a.m. to go into high school in the city,” the comedian told the New York Post at the time. “It’s cool. It’s weird to be back.”
Jost was joined by his 96-year-old grandpa as the ferry was towed to a new temporary location.
“I wanted my grandpa to see it. He’s 96 and he’s been on Staten Island for his whole life,” Jost explained.
