I’m no yacht freak, but I this is one of the most amazing boats I’ve ever seen:
The concept is a “moving island.” It’s name is dimensional: 58×38. That’s in meters.
Hat tip to Dion Neutra.

Well, correction, this is one of the most amazing computer generated boats you’ve ever seen. Let’s see what happens when it’s not just bits and dreams.

I wonder how propulsion is handled with no visible engines, fuel ports, etc.
It looks like a villain’s boat from one the Bond flicks. “Good evening, Mr. Bond.”

Reminds me a bit on the boat “Renovato” in the movie “The Island” by Michael Bay with Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson. I find the design impersonal and cold. Doesn’t touch me at all. –Cheers

Right, Jason. Should have said that.
And Brett, that was my first thought as well: “This thing needs to be built, just so they can use it as headquarters for an evil genius in a movie.”

Exactly. He propels it via telekinesis originating from his swelled head.

Watch out for emails saying they're sharing "an innovative document" with you. Seeing a bunch now, and it's phishing. Don't click on them.

@simonspeight It is nice, though heat isn't as rare in the UK as tends to be claimed. Still, it's cool. :-)
