It is a Gunboat, not your average cat.

If you have to ask how much they cost you can't afford one.

And for a mere $3.5 million you could have one too!

What will the sun do to those black sails? Oh, right: in that price range they are probably disposable.:D

Sorry but carbon fiber catamarans are unsafe and ugly and unsafe so I don't even want one of those even if I had 3.5 million dollars.

I prefer late 70's vintage fiberglass keel boats under 30' loa because they are tried and true and safe.

And because I will never have 3.5 million dollars.

$3.5 million for a used one, at that. "Sugar Daddy" - nice name.

Out of curiosity, what makes them so unsafe? The only thing off the top of my head is flexing.

I was working on a 130' Westport changing its wheels out. The Captain said while your here can you clean our chase boat? Chase boat? Oh yeah its the one over there.. It was a BRAND new 49' Spencer that they tow behind them worth 1.8 milion. Not that im into motoryachts all that much, I would much rather have sail power, but its amazing to see the amount of money people have. To top it off I got a hull cleaning job from the Westport due to SEVERE neglect. The WHOLE underbelly had barnacles almost an inch thick. With two divers on either side it took us 7 hours. Last time she was cleaned was 3 years ago. Goes to show you they either have disposable income and could care less, or have no clue about boat ownership.

And they probably pay 13% or less on their income taxes :rolleyes:
