    Sometimes folks just shouldn't be allowed to own a trackball . . .

    Nothing worse than having three friends fly in, and you only have space for two helicopters...

    An obscenity.

    Now, don't get me wrong, I like looking down a long bonnet on a car just as much as the next guy ... but that's a wee bit over the top.

    BTW, the US Navy is selling this beauty ( http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2003/Custom-High-Speed-MPP-Vessel-2617355/United-States#.VIvLeVoRuRk ) for a mere $34.5 million so if anyone has a spare 50-60 laying around, and the obvious wherewithal that that's even possible, they could probably make her into a really nice super yacht.

    I think she'd look nice in blue and bright accent stripes.

    I see great idea here for rentals, put a Xhibitionists-Batimobile plastic (injected somewhere in China) on a ship and you will win all cruising trips just because of the cool look. Maybe its time to change the industry and make ships look like cars to get more customers from the competitor.

    Looks like a partially melted octopus that washed up on the beach.

    Looks sad. The desolate interiors look even more sad and de-humanized. That boat is a cold fortress of loneliness and isolation. Made for machines, not for humans. In fact, in the pics it is populated by cars and flying drones. Eery is the right word to describe that place.

    Slavi my friend, we need to get you to open up a little. You'll feel better if you just let it out and tell us what you really feel.

    LOL! :D

    Well, summing it up - the more I look at it, the more I feel a need for some alcohol. :rolleyes:

    Mind you, reducing the lines to just 25' as a car themed speed boat it might be really cool. It'd even have a handy long hood to put a big block v8 under and pose some scantily clad cute thing on.

    But I will confess, if this trend actually materialized I would look forward to someday seeing a 1960 Cadillac Eldorado themed super yacht catamaran (square corners, don'tcha know). The fore and tail grilles would make great facades for decks. It could be pink....

    Roof and rear haunch reminds me of a Bentley GT
