Giant Boat That Floods Itself To Pick Up And Carry Yachts

April 15, 2016

This is a video demonstration of the 556-foot-long yacht transporter Super Servant 4. It can flood the rear of the ship so a bunch of smaller (but still very large) boats can be piloted inside, then pump all the water out for dry transport. I am going to buy one, then I am going to start pirating other ships. Want to join my crew? You just have to poke one of your own eyes out (how you do it is up to you, but we applaud creativity) and wear an eyepatch. We've all done it. Now none of us can see that well and we wind up crashing a lot of boats into each other. But you know what? We have fun doing it. That's what's important. Plus friendship.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Luke, who promised me a vacation on his yacht, which I suspect is imaginary. Hey, that's cool, I'm great at playing pretend.

    Seems odd to have a boat to move boats. Besides conserving fuel. Or doing maintenance.

    The purpose of the eye patch was to keep one eye acclimated to the dark so they could go between the bright deck and the hold without waiting for their eyes to adjust.

    The fun fact is that's one of the *smaller* vessels in that fleet :)

    I like that it's called the Super Servant. Can't risk chipping the delicate egos of your wealthy customers with your much more impressive boat.

    I saw a ship similar to this used to move an at-sea oil rig once. It was impressive, those things are humongous.

    But what about those of us with 557-foot-long yachts? Harumph.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Those get transported on ships like the Blue Marlin or Black Marlin.

    Excellent, I'll take three.

    I love it when James Bond's toys show up IRL!
