$24 million yacht or floating prison?

It looks like a fortress on water.

SuperYachtTimes

Judging by its photos, the "118 WallyPower" doesn't look like a luxury yacht. If anything, it has a post-apocalyptic design that gives it the appearance of a maximum-security prison on the high seas, kind of like a water-borne " Badonkadonk " tank we featured recently. But for those who have the means to purchase one--for $23,903,925 (be sure you have exact change)--we suppose it can look like anything they want.

And if its fortress-like exterior doesn't provide enough security, the vessel can outrun any potential perpetrators with three gas-turbine engines that pack 16,800 HP capable of reaching 60 knots. Accommodations inside the seagoing monolith are apparently far less foreboding, according to BornRich, with "solid teak decks, a full kitchen, six Panasonic LCD TVs and an all-glass dining and lounge area."

For the price, though, we'd expect the yacht to carry more than the recommended six passengers. After all, that comes to roughly $4 million per head. (Or $2 million, if you include the six-person crew.)
