Looking at the "scoop" on its side, is it jet propelled? (The link doesn't work for me.)

When I read the link yah... Gas Turbines. I hope that hull is strong material. Especially the leading edges. Wonder if it jet pumps or props and Spurs. Not a boat to just chill on.

You'd love it Mark, it'll cruise at 60 knots give or take a few.

That is a wild looking boat but it just doesn't look like it would be much fun to cruise in.

FB would be fun at 60 knots! At least you could see the floating telephone pole seconds before it punches through into the bilge. Article mentions cramped (crouch down) ER. That alone is no good for me. Wonder what propulsion gear... straight drive props, Howard Arneson drives, pods, water jets???

At 60 knots you'll much of the scenery with no FB. .29 mpg - Visa or MasterCard?

PS: I'm betting on the side of .15 to .10 mpg at WOT... Go Horsy... GO!!!!!

Here's a study in contrast. I'd take the one in the foreground, hands down.

Not me.
I would take the one in the background, sell it, and then buy the one in the foreground with a private island, mansion, boat house etc.

The boat is registered in the Caymans. The owner pays no taxes, but the owner of the boat in the foreground undoubtably does.

118 Wally power is US$ 33 million for the triple gas turbine version, Fuel capacity 5800 US gallons.

At the maximum speed of 60 knots (110 km/h) the gas turbine uses 15 US gallons per nautical mile, 900 gallons - per hour! X $4.00 per gal = $3,600 per hr.

Visa or MC? LOL

And it still is not a large factor in the overall costs.

I think the side "vents" are actually for firing torpedoes while submerged.
