Back in the day, when "OCTA*****" was first built, it was 120' and went 72 mph and this was the early 80's. It had two BIG Arnesson's and a KAMEWA jet in the middle. Now it's 144' and only does like 32 mph. Oh well.

Just watched the show on the travel chanel. said they've got 30 mil. into it. can you imagine what it cost just to take it out to do speed trials. They said they ONLY got it up to 61 mph, peice of crap!!! Thats pretty impressive seeing that thing up on plane.

Want to see what kind of seas the BIG yachts handle?
I was on the Dockwise yacht transport site (can anyone say Bertram in Costa Rica?) and came upon a cool video clip.
Check out www.yacht-transport.com & look to the left. Click on the link "Do you want to travel on your own keel?"
It was taken from the bridge of "Kiss The Sky", a 170' Amels
