They will be taken out and the Vessel is being sold with 2 BRAND NEW Caterpillar C-18, 1100 HP Engines with a 3 year warranty...Bow thruster...Ride Control, MDI-Active Fin, Stabilizers Inmarsat-C Mobile Earth Station-MES.

    Asking $2,450,000.00 Ready for Yacht conversion...OWNER SAYS SELL...MAKE AN OFFER

    A Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull, better known by the acronym SWATH, is a twin-hull ship design that minimizes hull cross section area at the sea's surface. Minimizing the ship's volume near the surface area of the sea, where wave energy is located, maximizes a vessel's stability (lowers sea sickness), even in high seas and at high speeds. The bulk of the displacement necessary to keep the ship afloat is located beneath the waves, where it is less affected by wave action. Wave excitation drops exponentially as depth increases, so wave action normally does not affect a submerged submarine at all. Placing the majority of a ship's displacement under the waves is similar in concept to creating a ship that rides atop twin submarines.
