Landing Crafts For Sale

Landing crafts are specially designed vessels used for hauling cargo, trucks, containers, building materials, cars and passengers. Landing crafts are versatile ships that can be used in ports that do not have fully developed wharfs and docks. This makes landing crafts very useful in development in the islands. 

The landing crafts used today are much bigger versions of the ones used during the war. While landing crafts used during World War 2 carried only soldiers or tanks, the modern landing crafts are big enough to accomodate buses and trucks. There's usually a second deck for passengers. 

A brand new landing craft will cost millions of dollars. US$5,000,000 should be a rough estimate of a regular sized landing craft if you build one in North America.

Buying used landing crafts is a viable option for those who are practical minded. 

Now my good friend who happens to be living in the beautiful Trinidad and Tobago happen to sell landing crafts for a living. His website is at http://www.landingcrafts.net

They would come in handy during floods! But I'd have to think first where I'd get the money to buy one. And where I shall have it "parked" :D

Hahaha. Parking would really be a problem.

There are many landing crafts used in the "Nautical Highway" here in the Philippines. I know someone who owns one.

As the economy crashes and so many people loose their jobs, I think that owning a landing craft, even when it's so expensive to get one, is a great idea.

You can always find high paying work if you own a landing craft.

I know owners that get $1,500.00 a day to charter their boats. Now they don't have to work at all, Just lay on the beach all day and play with the ladies...

I want One;-)

And you get to hang out on the Sea all day:-)
