Tiger Woods new Yacht

Not many people know that Tiger Woods owns a yacht.

Ever since the golfer Greg Norman got his big yacht, people around the world have marveled at how big it is.

Well, Tiger Woods earned a lot more money playing golf than Greg Norman, and he invested it in all the
right places so he too could have a yacht.

Recently, Tiger withdrew some of his money and bought a yacht. He had it decked out to his specifications, with all the things he wanted on a yacht. He secretly did all of this until the yacht was ready to set sail.

A photographer on assignment to photograph sea turtles in the ocean happened upon the yacht during it's initial shakedown cruise, and got the very first photo of Tiger Woods yacht.

This is Tiger's new yacht.

It would be nice to have as long as you don't get "a hole in one".

I know large yachts take a lot of fuel to run. How many gallons of fuel does an aircraft carrier hold? Just wondering who has that kind of money to purchase a Air Craft Carrier.

when it was first on ebay, I took a printout to the bar. I think we tried to figure out the mpg as they listed the range, and fuel capacity. It was at least several hundreds of gallons an hour, at 30 knots.

Probably none, as they are nuclear carriers, no?



All I ever really needed to know, I learned from watching Star Trek.

that one was a fossil fuel WW II surplus carrier I believe. Details in my link.

And you think Hummer gets bad fuel economy. We are talking meters per gallon when we mention MPG..

Most old ships are sold for the value of the scrap iron.
