Though this list is heavy with ships that most people can’t afford, there are a few you can get for under $100,000 and even under $50,000 in some cases. From 20 footers to vessels that are a few hundred feet, and from classic World War II boats to the latest and greatest new builds, there’s something on this list for everyone.
So let’s pull up the anchor and salute the best 21 ships you can own that have been built to accommodate military forces around the globe.
Lets get started…
Our list begins with a vehicle that can operate in both land and water. An amphibious armored patrol car, the Russian-made BRDM-2 has a V8 engine with 140 horsepower and can reach a top speed of 6 miles per hour on the water. Fitting a crew of four, it has welded steel armor and can be equipped with a heavy machine gun.
The BRDM-2 first entered service in 1962, and over 7,000 of them were built. These vehicles are currently used by several militaries across the globe. Prices for older demilitarized versions vary considerably based on condition. Some can be found for under $10,000.
