To be fair, an eco-friendly mega-yacht, but we still fail to see how building a new multi-million dollar ship for a handful of extremely wealthy people is at all green. Now we have finally laid our eyes on Starck’s massive ship, as designboom has the first real photos of the yacht, as well as some additional info about it. We think it looks mighty well, somewhere between a normal ship and a semi-submerged submarine, and certainly wouldn’t turn down the keys if someone were to offer it to us, but still, we’re sticking to Starck’s own lines when he said, upon unveiling the news that he was designing said boat: “A luxury yacht is the most stupid thing invented in the world, in theory nobody needs that. It is a display of power and money.” Indeed.
