Blue Marlin world transport lift ship!

The Blue Marlin is one helluva ship!

Based out of Willemstad, Curacao (tiny Caribbean island owned by the Netherlands), the Blue Marlin is one of the largest semi-submersible lift sips in the world.

The Blue Marlin will submerge itself in water so massive ships and structures (ie: USS Cole warship, 60K ton oil rigs, SBX-1 DoD radar detection system, etc) can be loaded onto it. The Blue Marlin then re-emerges with its cargo and takes it 15,000+ miles around the world.
