You know who needs an armored boat? Coast guards, maybe. Our guess is more along the lines of stylish, uber-rich villains.
From Nikos Manafis Design, the one-off, military-inspired Marvel 41 is clocking in at a severe 139,000 pounds. The stealthy scoundrel still cuts through the waves with speed and ease, sporting either dual 350 horsepower, Mercury Verados engines or a double Cummins churning out 425 horsepower. And it’s packed with a 238-gallon tank for those lengthy chase scenes.

The passenger iteration fits 18 of your closest henchmen and is sporting both a rooftop for lounging and an all-weather protected deck.
While we foresee a ferociously slick dark knight — maybe with an eye patch? — helming the Marvel, the designers state that the intention of the boat is actually to escort and protect larger yachts. That’s some serious eff-you money, but paints a picture of more a Madoff-type instead of a Mr. White running the show.
