Seeing a boat in someone’s backyard is not uncommon. However, when that boat is a 74 foot long, 16 foot wide steel behemoth hand-built from scratch by the owner, it begins to raise eyebrows. Doug Jackson, of Tulsa, Oklahoma has such a boat in his front yard. It’s called SV Seeker, and it’s not something you see every…
After the MV Baltic Ace collided with a container ship in 2012 on its way from Belgium to Finland, in just 15 minutes the world lost 11 sailors, 1,417 Mitsubishis and an almost brand new ship—only to end up with the additional problem of cleaning up the seabed without spilling too much oil into the North Sea.
Here’s how not to load an excavator onto a ship.
The container ship El Faro was hauling cars, groceries and other products needed for daily life in Puerto Rico when it met its demise during Hurricane Joaquin, per CNN. Now the National Transportation Safety Board is searching the wreckage in hopes of locating any clue into the ship’s last moments.
Environmental regulations can often sound annoying, arduous, or unnecessary, but that’s often because most of us aren’t familiar with the very reasons for their existence. Even something as simple as dropping anchor on a coral reef – which sounds not so bad, I mean, it’s just a hunk of metal landing on some rocks,…
The sleek and sexy Bugatti speed boat you might have seen with the stylized “EB” emblem on the stern and a CGI bikini babe on the deck is actually made by Palmer Johnson. And at $3,500,000 it’s one of their entry-level offerings.
The Arthur Kill ship graveyard of New York City’s Staten Island is where dozens of ships, boats, and watercraft go to whither, rot, and die. It’s one of those few forgotten, barren locations amongst the bustle of the city, and it’s nearly completely inaccessible. But this video, composed of gorgeous high-definition…
What you’re looking at isn’t some craft plying the wastes of the outer planets. It isn’t a particularly confusing sculpture a billionaire has commissioned. What it is, rather, is a particularly confusing megayacht a billionaire has commissioned. Please welcome Sailing Yacht A.
Can you spot what’s wrong with this render?
The MSC Zoe is 1,297 feet long. It has an engine that’s 51 feet high. It can carry 398,544,000 pounds worth of stuff. Here it is playing the Star Wars theme on its horn.
I spent some time on one of those pedal-operated paddleboats this past weekend, because that’s the sort of exciting, anything-goes, wild-libertine lifestyle I lead, and noticed the little manufacturer’s sticker on the boat. It listed the expected seating and weight capacities, as expected, and then something…
Ships are great. They transport people, transport goods, they help fight wars, and best of all they transport cars. Oh, and they’re really big.
Cadillacs, especially the gloriously massive ones from the Malaise Era, are often called “land yachts.” This refers not just to their size, but also to their opulence and handling abilities, which were decidedly boat-like. But did you know it was also possible to buy a Cadillac that was a literal boat?
Whoever said you need a car or an aircraft to achieve big speed?
I don’t know what it is about this bus, lying deep in the murky deaths, is so terrifying. But something about it is giving me the absolute willies.
What you’re looking at above is a sportfishing boat that has a 6.2l V8 engine on the back. And next to that 6.2l V8 engine are three more identical engines. Total power is 2,228hp. Not bad, right?
Apparently "a miscommunication between line handlers aboard the containership MSC Ilona and those at terminal 4 in the Port of Baltimore" ended with what looks like an older Toyota Tacoma dangling off the ship's deck like the most useless anchor ever.
The Dutch Dockwise Vanguard is a semi-submersible heavy lift ship built in 2012 by Hyundai Heavy Industries that can carry 110,000 tons. That makes it the largest marine transport vessel in the world. Oil company Eni Norge gave them a call.
How much roll can an ocean rescue vehicle survive? Quite a bit, as this video evidence suggests.
