Building a massive ship is a task that can take many years to complete. But the task of that huge vessel getting from land to water is actually pretty fast and it only lasts seconds. Since it happens so fast for thousands of tons of steel to reach the water you know that this will be a violent spectacle. Some of them are launched sideways some are slid stern first into the ocean but whatever the way it is always spectacular to watch.
Today we bring you a crazy compilation of spectacular and violent ship launches that even have the people who built it grinning and cheering, watch and enjoy, and yes there were quite a few cameras that bravely gave their lives for you to be able to watch this from many angles.
