Buy This High-Speed Military Catamaran for Just $180,000

Those in the market for a new boat will want to seriously consider this catamaran. It's an absolute bargain. It might not seem that way when you look at the $180,000 sticker, but the original price on this military vehicle was $15 million. That's around a 99.8% discount, so what are you waiting for? This 105-foot long catamaran is a Lockheed-Martin HSV Sea Slice designed in the SWATH (Small Water Plane Area Twin Hull) style. That design minimizes the ship's volume at the water and makes the vessel more stable than traditional monohull or catamaran vessels, even at high speeds. This one can do up to 30 knots and still be manageable – even in rough seas.

There's even a common shower with a stackable washer/dryer combo so you and your guests can stay neat and pretty. This particular vessel was built back in 1996. According to its listing on YachtWorld, it has two MTU 16V396 TB94 diesel engines that put out 3480 horsepower each. That should be enough to handle whatever urgent matters come your way while you're out on the high seas. RELATED: Watch a Bizarre Boat/Van Combo Take to The Water
