Why am I not surprised.
It even looks top heavy and with those big underwater holes in the hull it should have sunk like a stone.  %%

Its a real shame I think, kinda' looks like a toy boat   ok2  There's a video of it rolling over here at the bottom of the page:

 http://www.motorboatsmonthly.co.uk/news/536600/boat-fail-90ft-northern-marine-super-yacht-sinks-on-launch

Haven't watched it all the way through but the launch begins at around 2.23.

What's known as achieving the angle of loll. Equilibrium but not quite as the builder wanted.

I like how you watch it capsize in the harbour/launch and then at the end they say it is now for sale!-- Who'd part with ready cash after seeing that %% %%

Always fit the big SLA batteries before putting it in the lake.  Didn't they test it in the bath first?
