Default Have you ever just....

perused the mega yacht listing on yachtworld.com?

I started at the biggest and began to work my way down...Only got to about page 40 (which was in the high 100m range). You can actually buy a cruise liner!! And for like 15mil! That doesn't seem that bad...But this one kind've stood out...Sure would piss Roman Abramovich off!

Amazing isn't it?
I think that's how the 1% of the "Other Half" roll.

They couldn't give me a shipping estimate, so I'm going to pass.

No one who legally works for their money would ever build something like that! In FL/Bahamas the cruising gets really limited after a couple hundred feet due to the draft those "ships" require.

82 Viking Enclosed Bridge with a pair of 2600's and I would be all set......boat runs about 45 MPH and is only about 6mm!

If memory serves me right, annual operating cost varies from 10-20% of value depending on usage. Thats $45,000,000.00 to $90,000,000.00 a year just to keep her floating and full of crew and supplies
