Destroyer wheel?

On some boat ads I notice that the boat has a "destroyer wheel". Does anyone one know what this means?

Thanks

No, unless the boat was prevously owned by George Thorogood?
I'm still struggling with the translation (or actually the possible permutations)

AFAIK it's just referring to the standard SS spoked wheel that nearly everyone has, as opposed to the old traditional wood spoked wheels.
