Two Futuristic Yachts

"Who Said a Yacht has to Look Like a boat?"
Design Magazine / baekdal.com (undated, possibly 2008)

"It's hot and summer and what better place to relax than on a yacht - especially one with a striking design. Here is some 'inspiration' for what you might buy."


"The Olucus is a very futuristic looking yacht from Schöpfer Yachts. Its 250-foot, can accommodate 12 guests and can travel at speeds up to 25 knots. It got a double-height dining room, an elevator and a special area for 'the owner' + a lot more...."

The other concept for a yacht shown is the Infinitas: 300 feet long with accommodations for 12 guests.

The author points out that there's no price given for either of these yachts, since they're 'concept' vehicles. My guess is that, when yachts like this are built, they'll be in the 'if you have to ask, you can't afford it' range.

This post shows eight rendered images of the Oculus and 14 of the Infitinas - 13, actually, since the first two are duplicates. There's enough text to give a general idea of what's inside the yachts, but no deck plans. Still, those pictures are impressive. The post might be worth visiting just for them.

Kudos to the author for giving credit - and links: "(via Schöpfer Yachts - Image credits: Tangram 3DS)".

Schöpfer Yachts' website gives a brief overview of the company:
"Schöpfer Yachts was founded in 2008 as a US based company dedicated to the pursuit of advanced yacht aesthetics and technology.

Schöpfer Yachts is among a new breed of yacht companies, which will secure strategic alliances with the world’s finest naval architects and shipyards....
" (Schöpfer Yachts)
The first comment to the post was: "Right, so now they have to look like a giant sports shoe." I see what that reader meant: but both of the designs have an elegance to them, as well as what may be wind-friendly shapes which might have an effect on performance - and more likely would reduce wind noise inside.
