Silverton 48 Convertible

Welcome aboard LBD. Great to have another new poster contributing to the fray!

Well, If you are going to dream, dream BIG!

This was Greg Norman’s (pro golfer) yacht before he sold it to Wayne Huizenga. It looks like you get 3 for 1, with a smaller runabout and a large offshore fishing boat on board for your enjoyment.

Think the price tag was about $70 million.

Maybe Tiger and his new Admiral would come hang out with me.

Here are a few tidbits about the boat from GolfDigest.

Inside Norman’s yacht.

Wait, mate. Take off those shoes soiled by planetary dust. Aussie Rules is a mansion on water. At 228 feet, it was 43rd on Power Motoryacht magazine’s 2004 listing of the world’s longest yachts. Its initials, AR, are etched into the Italian marble floor of the cherry-paneled main entrance.

The April 2004 Robb Report magazine did an AR inventory so heavy on brand-name plugs that the piece read like a sales brochure: Bernardaud china, Christofle silver, Waterford crystal, Frette linens and personal-care products by Jurlique.

And: overstuffed couches, ottomans, draperies, and pillows done in chenilles, silks and velvets. An Art Deco movie theater with a Linn entertainment system, one master suite, five staterooms for 10 guests, quarters for a crew of 14, private office, conference room, workout room, 1,000-gallon Jacuzzi with four swim-up bar stools and 12 televisions, among them a 61-inch NEC PlasmaSync.

So, where’s the putting green?

Nothing golf-related, says Brian Stevens, a Norman public-relations representative. You could walk on the boat and not know it had anything to do with Greg Norman, golfer.

But a man who helped coordinate the yacht’s design and specifications suggests that Norman’s very identity is embedded in Aussie Rules.

Geoff Cribb is an overseas representative of the Australian shipbuilding company Austal. He says, Greg is extremely competitive, not your typical yacht owner sun-tanning in Monaco.

Norman was hands-on in the boat’s creation, deeply, intimately involved. every day for two years, says Jim Gilbert, editorial director of ShowBoats International magazine.

So Aussie Rules is luxury with muscle. It carries six boats and has dive gear for 30 (and a decompression chamber). There are 200 fishing rods, two kayaks and an armada of powered water toys. The yacht’s range at 12 knots is 9,000 nautical miles.

A pleasure palace, yes.
