Yeah that's 'TWINE'.

You can see that TWINE and Ermis2 attain their speeds in different ways, but each tries to lighten the load as much as it can. Ermis is also far less 'opulent' than TWINE, and it would be my guess that Ermis is far more fuel-efficient as well, running only three 3650hp diesels.

So what kind of fuel consumption at WOT? I would say somewhere in the 2000 gph range.

I don't really see the purpose in a Sport Yacht. Express Cruiser? Yes, they have a place. I like the Formulas for that. If you want 3 stories of boat then why are you in a hurry? If you have a big yacht then you don't need to get to the party, you are the party. You have to give up a bunch of space and weight you could use in a real yacht and most don't really cruise at 50 knots.

Now if you want to see a yacht, look up Cakewalk, not Catwalk. Now that is a yacht. Derecktor builds a BOAT.

The guy that builds the Bond theme boats lives about 5 miles from me. He has an insane car collection housed in a museum and monster house on the intracoastal. He decorates the whole street his house is on for Christmas so that everyone's decorations match, it is worthy of the Clark Griswold award!

Guy does a lot of cool stuff for the community.

Well. If size and comfort is what you want, why settle?

Yeah, I am kind of partial to the American built stuff. That is just the way I roll. Cakewalk is the largest American built yacht since the early 1900's.

I am actually partial to classic yachts. For the bigger stuff, I like Burger's and Feadships. For smaller stuff, I like Chris Craft, Hatteras and the like.

I am not a big fan of boats that look like space ships.
