Life-size Noah's Ark replica to sail to Israel

Built by Dutch millionaire Johan Huibers, the enormous 2,500-ton vessel is nothing if not impressive.
Measuring 410ft in length, the vessel, which was built after the idea came to Huibers in a dream, is home to an array of museum exhibits and is able to accommodate anywhere up to 5,000 people.

The veteran businessman had intended to sail the ship all the way to Rio de Janeiro in time for the 2016 Olympic Games, but when those plans fell through he opted instead to aim for Israel.

There is one major snag however - the vessel is unable to move under its own power which means that the only way to get it to its destination will be to have it pulled there using tugboats.

The total cost of hiring the boats for the journey will come to around $1.3 million.

"This is a copy of God's ship," said Huibers. "It only makes sense to take it to God's land."

"I love the county, I love the people. They don't obey, they do what they want, they drive like mad, shove while waiting in line and don't listen to anyone. Just like me."
