Arsehole of the sea?
 
2021-10-15 11:15:57 AM  
Neither of them have visited a Carl's Jr.?
 
2021-10-15 11:20:51 AM  
Both loaded with seamen?
 
2021-10-15 11:38:31 AM  
It's a good thing waves don't exist.
 
2021-10-15 11:39:07 AM  
Big holes?
 
2021-10-15 11:40:09 AM  
Both have a displacement appropriately measured in tons.

That thing will never be out of sight of the Monaco coastline.

A keel strip.

The only yacht that guarantees you will need not only a support yacht, but also a guest yacht since 75% of your boat is now nothing.
 
2021-10-15 11:55:06 AM  
You can lease them if you have enough cash?
 
2021-10-15 11:55:15 AM  
They both move to the motion of the ocean.
 
2021-10-15 11:55:42 AM  
I'm no boat captain, but surely an open, sea level lower deck that the captain can't see is a sure fire recipe for drownings at sea.

Even if I had $80mm to blow on a boat, I'd opt for something more along these lines for $78.5 million less.

More than capable of circumnavigation, and the interior is quite luxurious, too.

They're built like tanks, and are more like little ships than a pleasure craft.

Sadly, unless I win the lottery, it's all a pipe dream at this stage of my life.

I don't know, but that article isn't about a yacht - it's about a drawing of a yacht.

It's not an $80 million dollar yacht, it's a drawing. There is no yacht.
 
2021-10-15 11:56:53 AM  
I want nothing to do with them, but some people will pay money to enjoy them.

It's less of a 'superyacht' than it is a fancy houseboat on a barge.

I'd love to be able to afford an 80 million dollar super yacht, but that thing is ugly, so I think I'm gonna stick with the avocado toast.
 
2021-10-15 11:57:41 AM  
They both float and have motors in the back called Honda?
 
2021-10-15 11:57:48 AM  
If it hits a bar, it goes down?

Neither, it's a drawing.

Until they actually make the thing, and figure out whether the design is actually viable or problematic, it's just a drawing.

an $80 million superyacht

should not even exist in a society with this much economic disparity
 
2021-10-15 12:00:43 PM  
"Guys, guys, I have an awesome idea: Let's build a futuristic 80 million dollar yacht, but waste 80% of the space within the envelope of the hull so that it looks like a hollowed out Apple mouse."

"You son of a biatch, I'm in!"

So, it's an NFT?

69 meter yacht that only has room for 12 guests. Oh, and it runs on 'clean energy'. I'm guessing they are the usual giant diesel engines but they fill the fuel tanks with biodiesel.

Do people who aren't fabulously wealthy actually circumnavigate without a sail?

With the money you save you could set it aside for the future to constantly pour it into that hole in the water.
 
2021-10-15 12:04:46 PM  
If I ever become wealthy enough to afford a super yacht, I'd make my hobby traveling the world to scuttle super yachts.

Weatherkiss: [Fark user image 850x637]


Ok, you've convinced me.  If the superyacht has cloaking technology and disruptors, I'm interested.

Still want nothing to do with my mom, though, regardless of what fancy technology she might've had installed lately.
 
2021-10-15 12:05:14 PM  
Both have a little man in a boat?
 
2021-10-15 12:05:40 PM  
The yacht is a master at being passive aggressive?
 
2021-10-15 12:06:33 PM  
I know this is like those concept cars that no one builds, but what the heck would happen in rough seas and high winds with a hull like that?

That boat doesn't have a jib, but the cut of yours more than makes up for it.

Super yachts don't use Honda motors.  Just sayin'.
 
2021-10-15 12:07:41 PM  
They can both fit a lot of pricks inside?
 
2021-10-15 12:09:05 PM  
My mom is like a doorknob.

Everyone takes a turn.

"...a garage full of toys..."
Or as most people think, a crucial piece of personal conveyance required to exist in the modern world, but is usually priced beyond their means
 
2021-10-15 12:10:55 PM  
You gotta be rich to ride 'em?
 
2021-10-15 12:10:58 PM  
They rent by the hour?
 
2021-10-15 12:11:08 PM  
That design might stand up to heavy seas better than people would think. Cross waves would pass right through it, which is pretty revolutionary.

Even people who aren't fabulously wealthy circumnavigate with a sail.

Moderately wealthy is really all it takes.
 
2021-10-15 12:12:03 PM  
Overpriced?
 
2021-10-15 12:14:12 PM  
I think if I had 80 million, i would get like a million dollar boat and then 79 million dollars of cocaine.

/not all at once
 
2021-10-15 12:15:02 PM  
No thanks, i'll take one of these:

Let me change my answer. Like a million dollar boat, two chicks at the same time, and 78 million dollars of cocaine.

Unfortunately only one will ever see a giant douche.

You'll never get anywhere if you keep thinking like a poor person. Thanks big! That way, U2 can have a boat with a great big hole in it. Maybe even the titanic!

lol, if they sell the drawing to some dummy then yes.

6 men bleaching the poop deck.

Hmm, pulled the details on Nordhavn 60 (made in China). It gets about 1.2 mpg with a circumnavigation requiring at least 25k miles and I would assume you would pay about $3 on average for marine diesel around the globe. So the fuel for going around this pale blue dot will cost over $60k on that trawler. It would also take 4 months if you don't stop for anything.

I would rather take half a year and kick back on one of these.

You can get a nice one for under $800k

They're both classy, beautiful, and irresistible to rich guys?
