This is Salt, the newest yacht concept by Lujac Desautel. It is a sailboat. It has a clean design. It is very pretty. It is not my ideal sailboat—I like classic lines—but it is the kind of ship that I imagine Steve Jobs would have wanted instead of the horror he actually got. I would happily live in it forever.
This is Imāra, a 918-foot (280-meter) long, 187-foot (57 meter) 11-deck luxury giga-yacht. Today it is only a concept by yacht design shop Motion Code: Blue—but not for long. They are aiming it to their Middle East clients. I'm sure Arab princes and Russian oligarchs are grabbing their diamond-encrusted phones now.
When musical duo YACHT released "Terminal Beach," this week, Claire Evans (aka @TheUniverse) tweeted that the song is based on one very bizarre image of an ancient computer, ravaged by time and tree roots.
Are you going to a party this weekend? It's the fourth of July, so probably. Then you'll want to put on YACHT's delightfully poppy "Psychic City," which is, surprisingly, a cover of a totally bizarre non-song song from the 1980s.
Well, that's not supposed to happen. Not when you spend 10 million dollars on a 90-foot yacht. Not when that $10 million 90-foot yacht is embarking on its maiden voyage. Not when a boat, let a lone a $10 million 90-foot yacht, is never supposed to tip over sideways.
I always wanted to live on a sailboat, but they can be quite uncomfortable. I don't like motor yachts either, but I love some of the cool floating homes you can see in Sweden or Denmark. Glass—a concept by Lujac Desautel—seems like a great hybrid, with lots of space and light.
Yes, it's a concept. No, it's not that crazy. This 118-foot flying yacht could work. After all, it's just a very pretty ekranoplane, aircraft-ship hybrids that can float like a sea vessel and fly a few meters over the water surface.
P Diddy has become one of the first of the ultra-rich to hire the Solemates yacht after it launched from Monaco's docks last year. Every guest who boards gets loaned an iPad for controlling everything onboard—except navigation.
We've seen some brilliant yachts here at Gizmodo—some you can buy; most which'll never feel the cool touch of the ocean on its belly—but it's always the concepts which leave me most breathless. Like Feadship's Breathe, here.
Aluminum, wood, and glass. Lots of glass. A glass dome covering the main suite. A glass Persian carpet in the living room. Glass staircases similar to the Apple Store's. The Beluga feels like a floating loft designed by Jon Ive.
You remember the Eclipse, the 560-foot long yacht by Russian gazillionaire Roman Abramovich. It is the largest private yacht in the world. But maybe that claim is hard to visualize... until you see it compared to a 747.
It's like something from a James Bond film. You can just see Daniel Craig jumping effortlessly from the land-dock onto the deck of a yacht gliding away slowly, and as he hurries into the cabin the yacht submerges, bubbles rising.
Just when I thought that yachts couldn't get any crazier, here comes Origami, the daughter of an Imperial Star Destroyer and an F-117 Nighthawk.
The 303-foot-long Tatoosh is number 26 on the world's largest yachts list, but don't worry too much about Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen: he still owns the world's ninth largest, the Octopus.
Hey it's summer, what better excuse do we need for posting three yachts in one week? Especially when one of them has been styled after Lamborghini's sportscars, taking the angle of the chassis and creating a 15m long waterbeast.
It's not only that this yacht has been designed by an Egyptian naval architecture house, it's that it reminds me of the Egyptian ships of old, rolling up and down the Nile. Except that this 197-foot vessel runs on hydrogen.
