Most million-dollar luxury yachts just look like giant versions of the cabin cruisers you can find at a local marina. The Kilkea, however, is based on a supply vessel platform, so it has a unique industrial look to it. But with an estimated price tag of $62 million, it promises to be far more luxurious than a…
This is fun. Watch as this yacht carrier, the Super Servant 4, lowers its deck into the water so that tiny yachts and normal yachts and super yachts can all float and steer themselves on the water into their water parking spaces. And then watch the Super Servant 4 rise up and bring all the yachts out of the water.…
If people pouring tens of thousands of dollars into upgrading a Honda leaves you scratching your head, elaborate PC builds should baffle you even more. Some people take great pride in their sick computers, though, and what better way to show off than with a luxury yacht-shaped case?
What you’re looking at isn’t some craft plying the wastes of the outer planets. It isn’t a particularly confusing sculpture a billionaire has commissioned. What it is, rather, is a particularly confusing megayacht a billionaire has commissioned. Please welcome Sailing Yacht A.
Yachts are for chumps. People who really know how to spend their money get submersible yachts from Migaloo, a mysterious company that offers five different models of underwater palaces. But true evil villains just go for the Migaloo’s crown jewel: Kokomo Ailand.
Ever wake up in the morning thinking “man, I sure wish I could combine my beach house and my yacht”? Probably not, because most of us don’t have the financial assets to even hypothetically entertain such wild ideas. Enter the “X-EASY” yacht, which does the imagining for you.
How's this for obscene. Yacht-maker Ken Freivokh Design is in the process of engineering a brand new 500-foot superyacht for a client that will boast the world's first floating private IMAX theater below deck. And when it's not being used to show movies, the Nemo Room, as it's being called, will display live…
It's okay to desire the finer things in life, but at what point do you draw the line between luxury and exorbitance? Probably somewhere well before this insane 200-foot long mega-yacht from CRN called the J'ade, which features a built-in garage that smaller boats can drive right into.
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.
Until now, sequencing the genomes of many marine animal species has been all but impossible, what with the need to transport delicate specimens thousands of miles back to a terrestrial laboratory. But thanks to this mobile genomics lab created by the University of Florida, researchers will be able to run a specimen's…
Generally speaking, architects are brilliant and creative people with a wide range of talents. That sort of versatility is part of what makes them good architects in the first place. But let's be honest. Just because some people are good at a lot of things does not mean they're good at everything. Take yachts, for…
Very few people have ever stepped foot on a boat made by yacht design studio Wally—builder of the fastest yachts on the planet—and even fewer have stepped foot inside their loud, hot workshop in Monte Carlo. British photographer Benedict Redgrove is one of them. Here's what a $33 million yacht looks like before the…
The designer of Steve Jobs' yacht has never been the master of tact. Just a few months ago, Philippe Starck played up his friendship with Jobs and tastelessly teased the yacht as "revolutionary" Apple product. Gross. His latest cool guy move: having the monster repossessed over a payment dispute.
Venus, the incredible luxury yacht Steve Jobs had been designing up until his death a little over a year ago, seems to have made its first apperance as a finished product in the city of Aalsmeer in the Netherlands. Unsurprisingly, its design is breathtaking.
It's now pretty common to find motorhomes, and even smaller camping trailers, that transform and expand to increase the amount of living space inside. But the Wider yacht is the first seaborne vessel that features an expanding mid-section to increase its usable deck space, and provide easier access to the water.
What does one do with an extra $590 million burning a hole in his pocket? Well, if one is Chelsea boss and multi-kagillionaire Roman Abramovich, one commissions the construction of a floating pleasure island replete with early-warning missile detection. The only thing it's missing are those cute mini-giraffes.
It doesn't take the detective prowess of Sam Spade to see how awesome this 289-footer is. It can take you from New York to Barcelona in ten days flat in the lap of luxury.
Since China has a ton of people making a ton of money these days, they're just spending it wildly. Like buying $2.5 million yachts that don't work. As the yacht was entering the water for the first time, it started sinking and eventually capsized.
I've read Jonathan Swift's A Modest Proposal, so forgive me a moment, but I couldn't help but wonder if the poor would make the best fuel for this floating in-your-face exuberance from the folks at Yacht Island Design.
