Nope, not for me...I'd prefer an ocean-going multi-hull, shallow-draft sailboat that I can beach almost anywhere...no crew, just me and my sweet Captain DH...some close friends can join us when they can...

this is more my style of boat at least you can wake board and fish off it.
The only way I would want to own the boat the OP posted is too run a business for a ultra luxurious cruise ship that way the boat works for you not the other way around.

Wow.

Now there's the answer to our housing problem for the homeless during the 2010 olympics!

'We' don't wish the rest of the world to look upon us with tarnished eyes of course, .. so what to do .. and where to move the street people during the olympics .. so that our huge problem can go un-noticed and just be the beautiful city it's supposed to be in the eyes of others?

Wonder if the admiral would mind donating it for a couple of wks for a good cause?

"Is it an eeevillll boat??" lol..I bet this guys got a secret lair in a volcano somewhere too..

But c'mon?? If money were no object, and you had the chance to cruise the mediterranean on that baby for a couple of years, Im sure you'd find a way to forget what the concept of "ostentatious" was..I know I would!!

Actually for me it would really detract from the joys of being on water. I find that boat beyond repulsive and would personally prefer a tiny sailboat to this.

I have always hated cruise ships and this is basically a personal cruise-liner.



The joys of sailing is anchoring in tiny coves, simply diving off from a little wooden sailboat, fishing , reading, swimming etc... Something that monstrous does not belong on water, it belongs in a private museum to personal greed, ostentation, vulgarity and is the embodiment of everything I loathe, despise and environmentally a complete nightmare. I can't think of one good thing about it.

If money was no object a nice Vintage Wooden Yacht would be so , so much nicer. And I would prefer to spend the balance left from NOT buying that monstrosity on buying some small nice houses around the world, some vintage cars , travel and of course most of it could go to people who actually need the money.

I wouldn't, to be honest. It's too big!! It looks like a huge building!
If I had money and wanted to cruise for a couple of years, something more manageable would be just perfect!
