Yankees Team Gynecologist: I thought part of the appeal of your own boat was a certain coziness and sense of intimate/personal space. I mean, obviously a 50-ft yacht beats a zodiac, but wouldn't a 600-footer just feel anonymous and impersonal?


Um, no.

The point of a huge yacht is so you can fill the empty spaces with hookers and people you want to look down upon.

Yes, because that $600 million spent at the shipyard magically evaporates once it is spent and doesn't go toward steel, aluminum, wood, electronics, engines, stone, paint, etc. And the companies that make those items just have them magically appear and don't hire and pay anyone to help create those things.


But, it has been shown repeatedly, that one big purchase does not in any way come close to the economic impact of hundreds/thousands of people buying and using small goods. Yeah, it's big and exorbitantly expensive, but in the end it is still one single thing. Not a sustainable economic model, relying on the rich for one-off products.

Trying to remember who said it, but it was a high profile American: yeah, I have millions of dollars, but I still only drive the one car, and only shop for one person....

I seem to recall reading a story on Fark about a guy who spent a number of years building himself a luxury oceangoing tugboat for when he retired. It was so big that they were going to have to take down the wall of the building he built it in to get it out, although it was nowhere near the size of this.

Basically, if you're buying something that large at that price, you're usually paying for the design and concept, not the materials that make the object or the true "work" that went into it. Not only that, but you can increase the value by 50%-500% just by the "prestige" factor.

I mean, an Airbus A380 takes a lot of manpower, a lot of work, and a lot of materials. It's not often that some guy buys one. And that thing "only" costs a tad under $400m, which is overpriced just like everything else in this world, but not nearly as overpriced as it would be if, say, it were produced in much more limited quantities or were partially customized (with less detail... seats can be a lot of work) for rich guys who just want big f*cking airplanes and a dozen or so rotating sex rooms.

pottie: John Wayne had an old Navy minesweeper that was pretty badass.


John Wayne was a poser. He'd never have been allowed to get away with it in this society (well, unless he was a politician or pundit of a certain leaning... which he almost was in real life).

The sad part is that his overcompensation for his failure as a man has been emulated by so many other men, who happen to worship him as some sort of demigod.

Somali pirates, any one who despises the super rich or would try to kidnap them for ransom, etc. And since you mentioned religious extremists, there are plenty of religious groups who hate the Saudi royal family.

======================

True, and once the ship is built, then what? It is a white elephant that does nothing except make money evaporate. Not every dollar spent has the same overall effect on the economy. It's call the multiplier effect, and apparently you've never heard of it because you've never studied economics......no reading Freakonomics doesn't qualify as studying economics. Instead of a super luxury yacht what if this money had been spent on some long term capital improvement project that would have produced jobs for decades to come? No, spending on pure consumption doesn't have the same effect.

BTW, I will be doing the happy dance all day long when I turn on the computer and read the news about how the Saudi "Royal" family has been dragged of their palace and tortured to death by a mob of Saudis enraged by how their national patrimony was squandered.

Proteus: Fully-submersible Yacht
 
2012-06-13 08:54:39 AM

starlost: i somehow got connected with a wealthy guy for a short period of time and one day i was at a marina with him and a luxury yacht salesman. the salesman[excuse me broker] was showing us the biggest boat they had. it had a device on the deck that raised from the floor a golf ball on a tee. you would hit the ball and the tee would sink and then load another ball and raise up again. when it wasn't being used the deck was perfect to walk on. even when used the only thing above deck was the tee and the tiny hole the tee/ball raised and lower through.
anyway, i said something like isn't it polluting to be hitting balls into the water and why not have half a tee sitting on a disk to use as the golf tee and put the ball on the tee yourself and hit into a net to save the balls. they looked at me like i lost my way out of the turnip patch, my pants were on backwards, and i stepped in pig crap in my bare feet and didn't know it.


You're a hick and should be quiet when the grown-ups are talking. I hope you learned your lesson.

If I was rich, and money was no object, I too would purchase a boat. It would not be a custom job, it will be a second hand boat. I would simply go to whoever I had to, drop the cash, and buy... the U.S.S. Iowa.

The inside would be scrapped, stripped, and decked out in the latest of bling and technology. The outside, would still look like a godsdamned battleship. The guns, oh yeah, the guns, I would make sure those 16 inch beauties still worked. So when I pulled my battleship into Monaco Harbor, I could do a full broadside salute with all turrets (unloaded of course) and watch as the pressure wave rocks every smaller yacht in the harbor and shattered every window in about a 10km range.

And when people complain and biatch about it, and they will, I will simply say "Well, what the fark are you going to do about it? I... have a battleship."

Yes, it's true. Derision of the wealthy is always based on jealousy. The "You just angry cuz you be jealous" argument was true when Jerry Springer guests bellowed it out with a drunken slur, and it is equally true now.

Hey, I'm just parroting the Christian brainwashing I got as a kid, man. Your own trip is your own deal and not mine.

As I said, it's not for me to judge. Maybe you missed that part in your haste to reply. And I don't judge. But I do have my own thoughts about it, and they go a little like this: If there's someone in your village who's hungry and cold and sick, and you're a man of means, relying on a trickle-down system (that's never been definitively proven, by the way) to help that person seems a little less compassionate and humanitarian to me than helping them directly. It's difficult for me to justify, and difficult for me to imagine for myself, though I confess I've never been in a position to drop half a bil at a boatyard.

It kind of reminds me of the insults I used to get from commercial radio people when I worked in noncommercial radio, about how "You have to BEG, haw haw!" (This is something that's for some reason important to their egos, though not to ours.) I pointed out that if you ask someone for money, and they give it to you, then you can know that they wanted to give you that money. There is nothing similar going on in commercial radio: They know where their money comes from, but no one actually knows how it gets to them from listeners, or if it does at all, or if there's any discernible connection between the two. It's voodoo. And that's what trickle-down economics is: voodoo. It *might* work the way its proponents say it does, but that's not provable. Direct aid is a known mechanism, and also by far the most efficient method available for people of means to help people of lesser means -- assuming they wish to, and I do not assume that.

Mose: puffy999: If I have that kind of money, I'm buying a used cruise ship, sailing around the world, and picking up chicks at every port.

Most cruise ships aren't really designed with crossing open oceans in mind.

I'd still rather have a 40 - 50' catamaran. Aluminum hulls, dagger boards, rigid foam reserve bouyancy, high semi enclosed bridgedeck with all sail controls at the helm... sail the carribean, the east coat, the maritime provinces... maybe ski sail in iceland or norway, make my way down to the med... damn. I need to win the lottery. Too bad I never play.


They might not be built specifically for it, but most of them don't have any problems with it. Ive been on a trans Atlantic and even in 20-25 foot waves it was fairly smooth sailing. Those arent really huge waves, but with modern technology its pretty easy for them to sail around the big stuff.

This is exactly what I was thinking as soon as I saw TFA. Remember when the my-SUV-is-more-manly-than-yours fad jumped the shark when guys with more money than sense started buying surplus Unimogs? I wonder how long it will be till they start buying surplus warships just to be seen tooling around in?
