“Would the owner of the superyacht Positive Energy please swallow the naming irony and tow your boat out of the marina; it’s on fire.”
Riders on a ferry in Washington State watched helplessly as huge waves completely engulfed the cars unlucky enough to be near the edge.
If you’re ready to test the elasticity of your face and the strength of your lungs, Cigarette Racing’s 41' SD GT3, and its twin Mercury Marine engines putting out 2200 horsepower, are happy to oblige.
Remember that little aluminum skiff your grandpa used to take you fishing on? Turns out they go pretty fast with a modest engine upgrade and a few insane pilots.
Race car or 2,200 horsepower sun deck; which would you rather spend the weekend in? That’s the 41' Cigarette Racing Team SD GT3 boat and of course, its matching GT3 car. [Image: Mercedes-Benz]
One would think that it would be abundantly clear why you would not built a new cruise ship as a tribute to possibly the most famous failure in modern engineering history, but one Australian billionaire thinks different.
Over 4,500 passengers and 1,600 crew members were on their way from New York to Florida and the Bahamas when their ship got tossed around like a rag doll and was forced to turn back, the Detroit Free Press reports. Four people were injured in what can only be described as a vacation from hell.
Seeing a boat in someone’s yard 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 day.
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?
