    You also don't see many $5m passenger ferries on eBay, either.... although it is a pretty interesting boat, to be sure.

    It says 5m reserve not met, lol.
    I did some reading onit and found out that it actually has an active stabilization system on it too. I think it uses accelerometers to sense yaw pitch and roll and converts them into linear motion by angling any of four fins that ride inboard the submarine hulls, neat. Oh that and 2 4,000 HP gas turbines.

    Well I'm not bidding on it if it doesnt come with it!
    Besides, it might give my Ford Ranger a hard time up hills! :)
