hmmmm

Think i'd go for a blinged up carbon fibre cruiser racer yacht and sail off around the World in it! (get more mates onboard (and something tells me, winning the lottery would create lots more 'friends')
If she were huge enough (silly), then i'm sure there would be room enough inside her transom to have a sporty RIB (or 2)!

THUMP!
Damn, back to reality!

Come to think of it the one I saw not only had 2 Nelsons (Ba*ta*rd ) as tenders but also had a 25ft sailing yacht strapped on the deck.

In answer to Pettal's initial question I'm afraid that I would have to forsake the RIB's and go for a leisure version of the VT Halmatic Nelson 50 like what the pilots use.

Hasn't that Russian geezer who owns Chelski got a bloody big ship with a Sunseeker Preditor 56 as a tender?

It's actually got me thinking properly now and have seen a lovely 70ft boat with 12 berths for a mere 800k. My brain is going into overtime now as I can see a live-aboard business for divers in the Red Sea beginning to take shape!

All I need now is someone stup..sorry with investment savvy enough to give me 790k!

C'mon I know your out there......show me the money!

This is the puppy. I think you will find that the main tender is a 68ft Predator! The ship is for sale. I was going to buy it, but the fittings in the 5th bathroom weren't to my taste.

Have a look through some of the pics by click on the numbers under the main picture...she is pretty amazing!

Now that's just takin' the p*ss!

It'd be okay but it's only got the one predator.....and I wouldn't give you tupence for a sunseeker. Now if it had a pair of wally's.........what am I saying.....

C'mon the Bolton!

re converted Tugs. There is an absolute cracker caled the Lone Ranger b y the way did you know that if you do up a tug it's still classed as a Commercial Vessel and you can claim loads of Tax back But If you have a posh yacht well that's just a toy and not so much Tax claim.
