Dunno source, via the Interwebs


IMO : ??

Build : 2010 by ?? in the U.S. of A. nr ??

A floating Arc de Triomph? No, not at all….it’s just another floating monstrosity. This one is called the VB-10.000 and is a Heavy Lift Catamaran Barge, or something like that. Especially designed to take platform topsides in one lift she is one hell of a M.F. She is also quite gargantuous, apparently being the tallest “ship” ever build in the New World called U.S. of A. Besides that record she immediately also got the biggest eyesore build in the whole wide world title, and I don’t think you’d be very happy if you received that certificate from the Guinnes Book of World records. But it is truly deserved.

Another thing I can’t get out of my mind when I see this is one of those baby gym thingies (as pictured below), but then on steroids, plenty of steroids. I don’t wanna be the one raising the baby that fits under this thing.

The VB-10.000 is actually the successor of a similar concept, strangely called the Bottom Feeder: smaller in scale & capacity and also marginally less monstrous.

So, here we are again, the world is a floating monstrosity richer and some people have a hugh toy to play with. Good luck with it & keep it out of my sight.
