    "I designed the greenest yacht of all time. The hull is painted green, the engines are painted green, the interior is all in green colors, the crew due to sea sickness turn green, the owner playing golf on the green doesn't need to be on board, the upper deck is painted sky green with a green house type of construction, the chain and anchors are painted green.
    The consumption? Need a lot of green to pay for filling up the 100,000 gallons fuel tanks.
    Everything is related to green anyway.
    This rendering by Souter is a monument to the green, sorry I meant "greed"

    Is all that green paint made from green materials with green technology? :)

    Hard to consider any Mega Toy green. Just washing it down at the end of the day is enough to poison a few coral reefs. Once clean, it Takes another few tons of carbon just to fly in the Champagne.
    I do see more and more small motoryachts conceived and built with a styling which makes them look like they re going 50 knots , but powered by a pair of modest turbo diesels to drive at 18 knots. Not bad.
