    The 164 foot Imagine was built by Trinity Yachts to ABS standards and was delivered in 2016. She tops out at 20 knots and can cruise 4256 nautical miles at 16 knots. She is docked in downtown Norfolk adjacent to the battleship Wisconsin that is on permanent display at Nauticus. She is dwarfed by the 887 foot long battleship with a width of 108 feet and is capable of running at 33 knots. The juxtaposition of the boats side by side makes for interesting images.

    Notice the Blue Angel sitting atop Nauticus which is a must see when visiting Norfolk. Nauticus is a maritime-themed science center and museum which is chock a block full of fascinating displays.

    That battleship is a great tour. Would have loved to seen the yacht from the foredeck of Wisconsin.
