Eggs-act-a-ly, all things are relative. If you can afford to build a 33 million dollar go-fast I'm pretty sure you do not give two rips about fueling it. I'm sure engine room access doesn't bother the owner either, that's the crews problem. Purely a testosterone infused purchase and there's nothing wrong with that IMO. Torpedo launchers would be icing on the cake.

That paint job makes it harder to notice ripping across the water as the crazed captain runs down little trawlers that cross his path!


For a 100+ footer it has the living space of a 60 footer. The owner is an eccentric character for sure. He's too rich to be crazy.

Of course not, to owner of $33M mega speed-boat toy... that is!


However, $3,600 per hr... in just fuel expense... is a chunk of cash... to me!

"I think most pleasure boats could benefit from less "living space" and more boat space. Most designs are over stuffed w cabin space and the soft life stuff that is more at home in houses and mobile homes. The reason for this is that the boat buyers are more interested in stuff and living space than boat.

The only real problem I see here is that most fuel docks don't have JP5.

Industrial and marine gas turbines are often multi-fuel or can be modified to use a wide variety of liquid or gaseous fuels. Currently Jet A is around $5 - $8 per gallon.

I suspect if it really does use Jet A, it would have to be delivered to the dock by fuel truck. Imagine the logistics of that on a trip. It can't be cheap either.

Obviously, money is no object!

Best that I can do:Archived photos of Aphrodite

I'm sure that Tad Roberts can come up with something more detailed, including lines of his magnificent modern interpretation of "Aphrodite", "Liberty".
