I was just curious what everyone's dreamboat is. This is a completely open ended question and it can range from MC's to Yachts, from rowboats to raceboats, if everyone had a bank account the size of Bill Gates, what boat/s would you get?????

If we are talking ridiculous then it would have to be the 118_Wally. (http://www.wally.com/jumpch.asp?idChannel=44&idUser=0&attivo=2-6)

If we are being realistic than it is going to be the new 2007 PS197 that I am going to buy. This will be the first boat that I will have ordered from the factory exactly the way I want it, that is except for the stereo equipment that I will be installing.

Do you subsidize the costs of running that thing by hauling a million barrels of oil from port to port?

Greg Norman's Yacht
Contributed by Gary Richardson


Editor's Note:
Greg Norman, also known as "The Shark", has been a successful golf pro on the PGA circuit for a number of years. His prowess at golf and great popularity has obviously rewarded him well.



Every dream of buying your own yacht and putting out to sea to cruise the world? This story should help fan your fantasy.

Can you play any golf? Let's see what kind of boat GOLF could bring you?

Greg Norman recently took delivery of his new toy, named "Aussie Rules", which he helped design. At 69.5 metres (228 feet) in length, it's the world's largest aluminum and composite private yacht.

He had it built for only $70 million dollars. The company meant to build it for him "at cost" in return for the excellent advertising of having him as an owner, but they actually lost money on it.

When he first cruised into Sydney Harbor, onlookers remarked, "It's massive! Nearly three times the size of the ferries in the Harbor!" In addition to being opulent, it is also built for Jacques Cousteau-type fun and exploration. There is onboard diving equipment for 30 people including a decompression chamber and two huge compressors. Dives of all types can be accomplished by operating the Nitrox Mixing Panel onboard, enabling each guest's air tank to be customized with a mixture of gases.

To get the people out to those choice dive spots, or maybe just for having a bit of a splash, the following additional "small" boats are kept onboard:

42-Foot Custom Built "Game Fisher" Can be launched and retrieved from the deck. Perfect for a 4-person overnight fishing expedition. Has a gourmet galley for cooking up the catch while it's still fresh.

30-Foot SeeVee for a quick afternoon fishing trip.

22-Foot Novurania Equator with a meager 800 horsepower so you can get to the best diving sites ahead of everyone else. It has beach landing capability as well.

(2) 18-Foot Hewes Bonerfishers for those special occasions when Greg and a close friend may wish to maneuver over the sand flats in Key West, Florida

13-Foot Narwhal Rescue Boat in case someone falls off one of those other boats.

And finally, just for the hell of it, (4) Yamaha Waverunners!!!

Good grief already! Kind of reminds me of one of those Russian Matryoshka Dolls where the little ones just keep coming out of the bigger one!















Is it too late to learn how to play golf??

I am so tired of buying gas at ridiculous prices. I think I would sail this beauty around the world till I die. This is an odd looking yacht but it is so nice I don't care what hard core sailors think. Here is more info on the vessel. The Maltese Falcon (http://www.perininavi.it/galleria.cfm?IdBarca=37)

Greg Norman Sold "Aussie Rules" last year, it is now called the "Floridian"... the new owner also, stretched the second level deck all the way to the stern to put a helipad on it, but lost the ability to carry the 42 foot sportfisher on the stern as Greg Norman did. It was a *****in' boat though, all aluminum with a fiberglass superstructure.. even had a hyperbaric chamber and a dive master aboard!!

How 'bout one of these things. I lived in Port Huron, MI for 9 years and spent a lot of time on hot summer nights watching Great Lakes freight ships go toward Detroit and Windsor on the Saint Clair River. It was very interesting seeing them move through the swift currents under the Blue Water Bridge (crosses at Port Huron and Sarnia, Ontario).

This ship was actually in the channel at Grand Haven, MI last summer.

I have never seen a boat that big beached like that, but I have seen several sportfishers on an anchor (bow out) with their sterns in about chest high water... pretty cool to see a lot of money worth of running gear about 2 feet off the bottom!!!

I haven't been to the dallas show but I saw the one at the Ft Worth show. A few years back they use to have a classic Chris Craft owners show at the dallas boat show. They might have 20 old wooden Chris Crafts from 19 up to 23. They are such beautiful boats.
