Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder, but it would be an odd eye indeed to find anything to love in the design of this IMHO monstrosity of a 'yacht'. 'Fugly' indeed!

The ultimate bleach-bottle with THERE sticks in it.

From the comments on the video you'd think this pig was pretty or something.

I am assuming it will have sails eventually and will be able to 'cruise' under wind power. If so, maybe the shape and design of the sails will give meaning and flow to the currently odd looking masts.

To miss quote George Best.


If I had that sort of money I would spend half of it on whisky, women and model boats. The rest of it I would just squander.  {-)

Designed by Philippe Starck, who should stick to household items.
Great kitchen furniture and appliances.



But, look what he did to the Aprilia 6.5  <:(

Hi Tiger2 that quote from George Best , he must have pinched and mis-quoted from WC Fields 1880 - 1946.

I spent half my money on gambling, alcohol and wild women. The other half I wasted.
