  1. This would be the coolest thing to live in :cool:

  2. harumpf, you wouldn't catch ME living in sub-standard accommodation :LOL:.
  3. wow that would be awesome.

    the only thing i would be concerned about is lack of space, but it seems reasonabley spacious, however the 2.2m floor to ceiling would be a little close for someone clostraphobic and 6"2 like me let alone someone much taller.

    but awesome concept. $4 - $5 mill isnt really that outrageous when you consider land prices either

    how cool is the cliff one too. this will kill 20mins that i should be spending trying to work out why a pc wont re-image, cheers
  4. well that beat the hell of the barge I was designing...
  5. great for monsoon season

  6. I was working on a 160 foot motor yacht once, and three, yes three, 20,000 litre road tankers were unloading fuel into it. So what's that, around $70k in fuel? Sure you'd get a discount for bulk, so let's make it $50k! :LOL:
    Plus the three full time staff, and half dozen casuals.......skipper pulled down about $80k US a year, engineer about the same, bosun/chef/deckhand around $45k from memory. Berthage for something this size would be around $3k/month.
    Running and looking after one of these boats is a full time job!
    Those in the know budget around 5-10% of the purchase price per year in running costs.
    WHat the smart people do is buy them for their business, or set up a business to buy and run them (usually a subsidiary of their much larger business), and run them as "charter" boats, so they are a seperate business and you can do all teh depreciation, running costs, pour money into them from the other business etc tax dodging.
