Mod Selling Off Ark Royal Carrier On Website !

Recommended Posts

The challenge here, my fellow HPCers, is to sell the carrier to potential buyers via the medium of property VI propaganda. I'll kick off.

"Buy now or you'll miss the boat."

SOLD to a mystery buyer, who has called himself Noah 2012

I believe his real name is Evan Baxter and he used to be a news anchor on channel WKBW.

Apparently barclays wont give me a BTL mortgage for the arc royal despite there being hundreds of rooms and the potential to make millions in rent. The fools :D

Armed Forces minister Nick Harvey is asked about UK security with the announcement of the Ministry of Defence offering former carrier Ark Royal for sale on a website.

You can still see the "Add to Cart" button !!

Anyone fancy buying a carrier instead of a house?

It's just a generic website that the MOD usually use to sell off surplus stuff at fixed prices.

I’m sure that if they had spent money on a developing a special site to sell off stuff under tender there would be howls of protest at the waste of money, "why not use the site that you already have" etc etc etc.

Damned if they do, damned if they don't

You can't go wrong with port and starboard! They're not building any more ships.

They're not, actually...

Some seaside town that doesn't have a pier should buy it and use it as an attraction: open-air market on the flight deck; restaurants down below, coin-in-slot telescopes in the control tower. Plus the reactor can supply free forever electricity to the townsfolks. It does have a reactor, doesn't it? :huh:

An alternative would be to park it in the Med, just off the south of France maybe, and redevelop as a floating hotel: sun bathing on the fligh deck, attach a floating platform for swimming in the sea. Catering and accommodation must be good on board; may need to merge berths to be acceptable to the tourist market.

Or a "green" option. Sink it in the North Sea as a hazard to trawlers. Fish love a wreck, gives them somewhere to hide.

I heard some Chinaman wants it to open as a floating night club....

But then again when the Ukranians sold the chinese a just built Russian carrier they signed a deal promising not to use it for military purposes...

It's almost finished a refit and is about to set sail with a full compliment of J11's under the PLA navy flag...

So much for the word of China...

Yeah - good time to scrap our carriers eh?
