No S! The pair of diesels normally in a boat that size (if it's a cruiser) could weigh that much.wtf......thats straight up stealth looking....8000lbs is hella light for that size of a boat..what engines?
That's very interesting. . . I mean it's great for something like a cruise ship where stability is paramount, but it would greatly inhibit performance.I forgot to mention it had a gyro stabilizer onboard which supposedly eliminates all body roll.
Never heard of such technology.
Yeah I know about cameras but I have to assume it wouldn't interfere with high speed maneuvering or maybe they can turn it off/on at speed. Probably to give a steady base to launch missles from...duh.That's very interesting. . . I mean it's great for something like a cruise ship where stability is paramount, but it would greatly inhibit performance.
Maybe it's a slow speed vessel despite the looks?
I mean, imagine riding a motorcycle, or even a bicycle and not being able to lean in the turns. This is the same principle for all V-hull boats, it's a mandatory exercise for stability.
Very trick stuff, probably a lot going on that they aren't speaking of.
(gyro stabilizers are commonly used in motion picture cameras for stabilization on remote booms and what not)
