Having more money only makes you MORE of what you already were...and it CERTINLY does not give you good taste.

1. Well, it looks like a submarine. Does that mean it will sink soon?
2. Designed so you don't have to be ON it to get seasick.

Here's another really ugly boat seen at boat show last night.

It's a production model, so you can get yours here:

That is quite possibly the (IMO) ugliest thing I have ever seen afloat.

guys, it's not finished yet. When the scintillated x-ray laser is installed the glowing portlights on the top levels will provide the necessary magnetic resonance to focus the death ray. patience.

Open hatch covers, I think.

Well, I think that would have won the ugliest boat thread. Not only is it quite possibly the ugliest thing ever to put to sea, it's also one of the largest motoryachts ever -- 150m+ according to the sources I have seen.

I know just what would improve its looks...

A torpedo

Looks like the built the hull Upside-Down
Then bolted on the superstructure without turning it over.

Seriously the only unusual feature I can see is the reverse rake to the bow - what's that about.

I kinda like this one designed by Jules Verne:

what's that about.

Well in theory reducing the weight forward will reduce pitching moment. A wave-piercing type bow.

But in this case itís styling...all styling. The most important feature is that itís recognizably different from some other egomaniacs great white mega-monster. Recognizable by joe average who knows nothing about yachts or the function of various features. Just as long as the pedestrians point and squeak.....oh look!!!

Yes. Smoked glass in a flimsy aluminum frame.

The maker is at Lake Havusu, so after some beer soaked, mardi gras bead flinging, crappy classic rock blasting, sunburn inducing weekend, this design emerged.

The poor booth babe in the matching yellow and black dress actually looked embarrassed to be standing on it.

That's not the superstructure. It's the keel. After they finish with the keel they'll flip her over to start work on the rig. :D How many boats have observation windows in the keel? It's unique!
