But you haven’t seen anything yet!
Now, to challenge the field of cruising, private ownership of yachts has taken on a different style from the usual. Such is the case with this Super Yacht (appropriately dubbed “Tropical Island Paradise”). No price tag has been attached to it, but you bet all the rich & famous will be vying for it.
The extraordinary & extravagant 295 ft. yacht has many unusual features:
it boasts of a towering volcano with a cascading waterfall which feeds the swimming pool
its very own floating tropical islands
helicopter landing pad & huge bar set behind a series of beach cabanas. Playboys will love this. This sis spectacular for those quick shore trips.
It comes with its own private beach cove and a waterfall cascading down from a volcano.
Studio director Rob McPherson at the Derbyshire firm, who have also created the Streets of Monaco super-yacht, said: ‘The exterior was designed to give the impression of waves breaking around a volcanic island, whilst maintaining the look of a contemporary yacht design.
The lavish yacht can accommodate up to 10 guests – and can travel along at a top speed of 15 knots.
The main deck is a secluded beach ‘cove’ of cabanas surrounding a massive ocean view swimming pool.
And should the millionaire future owners get tired of taking a dip in the pool, they can sail out into the sea on their very own floating island complete with deck chairs and palm trees.
McPherson added: ‘We had two reasons for designing such a boat. The first being that it’s good fun, and secondly the current market is pretty saturated with designs that look fairly similar.
‘Our mission is to work on incredibly fun designs and carve a niche for ourselves within the market, a place where other designers fear to tread.’
Inside the huge, towering volcano is a cinema, library, games room, gym, spa and VIP suites – including an owners pad spread over two decks.
The boat – which has yet to hit the market and hasn’t had a price set – is causing waves in the boat building world with its unique design.
Would you be vying for it when it hits the market?
According to a survey, the rich still splashes around while the economy stumbles!
