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)

YouTube - GEORGE THOROGOOD "Bad To The Bone"

Watch great footage about the story of one manís slow odyssey around the UK:

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