$195m 'Tomorrow Never Dies' stealth ship put up for sale in scrap market

   Apr 28, 4:29 pm

Melbourne, Apr 28 (ANI): Sea Shadow, the ship that inspired the radar-evading vessel that was the base of evil media mogul Elliot Carver in the 007 film ' Tomorrow Never Dies', is expected to fetch a little more than 50,000 dollars in the scrap market .

It used a swath hull design. Below the water are submerged twin hulls, each with a propeller, aft stabilizer, and inboard hydrofoil all of which allowed her to remain very stable in rough seas.

Although it's likely to go for a bit more than 50K dollars, the Sea Shadow cost the US Defence Department - or more specifically, its research arm DARPA - a whopping 195-million-dollae to develop.

That was back in 1984, but the world didn't see the Sea Shadow for nine years. That's because it was loaded with the type of stealth technology that made the US Air Force's F-35 Lightning II so famous.

"The ex-Sea Shadow shall be disposed of by completely dismantling and scrapping within the USA," News.com.au quoted the description on the sale item as reading.

"Dismantling is defined as reducing the property such as it has no value except for its basic material content," it said.

Despite her sleek looks and staggering cost Sea Shadow only had 12 bunks on board, a microwave oven, a table and a fridge, which might all go some way to explaining why the Navy was untimely forced to sell her for scrap on auctions. (ANI)
