Now for sale: Navy special operations boat

Bookmark and Share

How badly do you want to catch some fish? Or do you just want to cruise the waters in style?

Well either way you might want to consider bidding on a Navy special operations craft, currently on sale through the General Services Administration auction program. The initial bid is $100,000 but that won’t meet the reserve.

The 82-foot Mark V special operations craft weighs about 57 tons and can carry about 6,500 pounds with a range of 500 nautical miles. It can fit you and up to 15 of your closest friends/military Special Forces crew seated in relative comfort.

It also has enough room to fit four motor-propelled inflatable boats.

And it can all be yours! Just be careful, it does not come with a warranty and you will need to haul it from its current location in Norfolk, Va. The auction starts on Feb. 20 at 5 p.m.
