    PAR Yacht Designer/Builder

    If I tried to take this seriously, there's a whole lot of protrusions, resistance and gadget looking crap, associated with that design's potential at speed. They styled her to look fast, yet hadn't a clue about how they might actually achieve this goal. A bit like designing a race car and ignoring the wind tunnel results. That thing is a cartoon, A Jessica Rabbit sort of thing at best.

    To quote Super Grover: "I would if I could, but it can't, so I won't, please forgive me that I don't."

    Must be a joke. Tell me how one could build a 246 ft mega yacht for only $25M

    Having more time to look at this,he's taken cues from the Mercedes Vision,Aston Martin DB9,Bentley GT,and a couple other things.

    At least it's not that fractional owner super yacht....the one with arches going from the bow and way up in the sky,ending up at the stern.

    And that other concept, also looks like a car and comes with a Bugatti Veyron type car inside it.

    Edit: it's the same guy:

    Just as if the designer´s study for a new Mercedes SLS was refused and then he decided: Well, then let´s make it a boat, those fools buy everything anyway...
