    If Apple made boats.

    I've seen this before but just a single exterior shot. How cool would that be?

    Any idea how much?

    Gheeze. Tired of your guests overstaying their visit? Give 'em a few drinks, seat them on the aft deck, hit the gas turbines to get her up on a plane, and watch your guests roll right off the stern into the briny deep.

    The price tag is a nice $24,000,000. I think there is only 1 right now, don't know if more are in production.

    Looks like the boat from The Island, if anyone saw that movie.

    Well the is certainly a unique boat.. I'd take one. It'd be silly on the St. Lawrence though.

    I'm with edesignuk on this, that's a real yacht, usually yachts have a dinghy, this ones got a helicopter! with fore and aft helipads even the little boat it deploys from the aft bay is big and it has it's own sub as well if you fancy diving without getting wet, love the nice touch of a sea level bar! Oh to be rich and have nothing better to do than waste your money on super toys :rolleyes:

    Wait for it to load and then file: save as. Or just select the link and save target to disk.

    I wish I could afford one, what a badass boat. I bet James Bond drives one on vacation.

    So, the gas tank on this thing is 5,812 gallons (22,000 liters)... assuming that it JUST runs on 87 octane gas, that means it would cost about $17,000 to fill up the tank ONE time. And it gets 15 gallons TO THE MILE...

    I'll buy you the boat*, but can you afford to take it anywhere?






    * in your dreams, maybe ;)

    It most likely takes marine diesel. Most boats above a certain length do. Personally, I'd prefer a sailboat. Nice and quiet, and like a nuclear sub, the range is limited only by supplies. Of course, it's not carrying a potential environmental disaster.


    Well, I suppose that depends on the food you bring ;)
