MooseKnuckle, --"The Shark", recently took delivery of his new toy, named "Aussie Rules", which he helped design. At 69.5 meter's (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 havinga bit of a splash, the following additional "small" boats are kept onboard:
* 42-Foot Custom Built "Game Fisher" which can be launched and retrieved from the deck. Perfect for a 4-person overnight fishing expedition.
It even 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!!!

There is a boat similar to this docked at Jefferson Beach Marina, and I'm not talking about the one near beach grill, that is small.

It has a red white and blue stripe at the waterline, i think its names UNITY and says Grosse Pointe Farms on the transom.

Does anyone know who owns this monster, it makes the infinity look like a dingy.

I will take a picture later.

OK, I've seen pictures of the 42' on the deck and the booms/cranes that they use to get it from there to the water, but I really need to see one while it's getting there. I can't imagine how much stress is put on the booms and the boat while hanging a 42' sportfisher out beyond the swim platform...

<_< That was my thought. How does the ship stay stabilized in the water while shifting that much weight from one side? Is this a hoax???
