No pictures of the interior though. I'm sure it's not to shabby.

If its a WWII battleship, it would have to be HMS Rodney or Nelson. 3 turrets forward nothing aft.

Edited for spelling

What do they consider a "megayacht" nowadays? They say this one is the fastest, but the former ECO/Katana is 244 feet long and had a top speed of 38 knots. The fastest of the Mulder/Staluppi boats was 120 feet long and would do 70 knots.

Honestly, I'm not sure if a bigger boat would make me happier. I kind of have the boat I want ... although its only a B******* and its kind of old. I'm pretty happy with it.

I think if I get a bigger boat, I would just have a bigger boat if you know what I mean.

Don't know why I thought of Capt. Ron when I saw her. But I bet Capt Ron could handle her.

Seriously what fun is it to say "Ok crew, take me here and let me know when we arrive. I'll be playing king-of-the-world with my guests".

Maybe I'm just sore I don't have one.;?
