This one was too tempting to pass up.

Anyone have a spare $168 million just hanging around that you are dying to spend...?

Too make it appear less expensive, they are auctioning it on ebay for only 50% of cost,then you pay the additional 50% later...What an intersting concept...

I'm seriously (well, sorta) wondering if someone left a zero off the fuel capacity. Heck, most trucks carry more than 200 gal.
Whatever.....

Hey guys... it says "more than" 200... so that could be like 2000000....

Also, I saw it says delivery in 2007. Maybe by that time fuel is sooo expensive you only can afford 200 at a time?

The text says it has a range of 16,000 nautical miles.

Imagine the fueling charges on it.

It also says helicopter in bow with a retractable elevator.

Imagine the costs...

Sixteen guest cabins...

Who's going to be the first to buy one???

Or buy it and donate it to Captain Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Let him paint it black , put a skull and crossbones on it, and a couple of those steel spikes on the side for sideswiping illegal fishing boats...

Yes the fuel capacity is stated at more then 200 gallons. So then again it could also be 210 gallons. But in all fairness,It does not hold any at all the damn thing is not even built yet. IMO it takes a set of b***s so big you would have to push them around in a wheelbarrow to post drawings (though very nice drawings) on a ad for something with a price tag like that. And they probably want to have 50% down in One (1) week then 20% and 20% and 10% on the day you put it on the trailer to bring it home. To have it maybe finished by 2007.

I think they forgot three zeros after 200.
