Hypothetically, say a private individual wanted to buy the ship, retrofit it for comfortable living and go any where in the world. How would you go about it? What would be required?
What is the minimum number of people that would need to operate such large and old vessel? How much would it cost to modernize it? How much crew would you take?
How expensive is it to operate it? It fills up with 95,960 gallons of diesel and its range of 13,700 nautical miles. To fill it up will cost as much as the ship itself.
What is the yearly upkeep?
It looks like it was sold in 2004 for 66k and now going for 135k is it a good investment?
So 1,750 tons, probably mostly steel, price of scrap steel is $96.00 per ton, so the scrap value if it is $168k which is more then the asking price of $135k. Is it just a very heavy, very old, very expensive to move scrap heap?
