Concept Video - Oculus Superyacht

Probably now more than ever with the global economy the way it is, designer E. Kevin Schöpfer's "Oculus" yacht is the stuff of dreams. Yet dreamy it is. At 250 feet long and featuring 12-foot ceilings, it's one roomy way to travel over the high seas at 25 knots. Its hull is prominently styled after the creatures of the sea, with an open-mouth-like backside and something looking a bit like an eye socket.

The Oculus is just a concept, but it's the flagship design for Schöpfer's new yacht line. Check out the gallery below for more of the Oculus.

Yacht ECLIPSE Amramovich's Superyacht : Video

M/Y Eclipse is a luxury yacht constructed by Blohm + Voss in Hamburg, Germany. The yacht is owned by Roman Abramovich, and is 170 m (560 ft) long,[1] and is due to be delivered to Abramovich in 2010 after the finishing touches have been applied. This makes Eclipse the world's largest private yacht, 11 metres (36 ft) longer than the world's previous biggest yacht Dubai, which belongs to Sheikh Mohammed, the ruler of Dubai.[2] The yacht's initial cost was estimated at € 340 million (circa $485 million US),[2] but a September 2009 report indicated that final costs could approach € 800 million ($1.2 billion US)

Dubai - 2nd largest yacht in the world (Video)

Formerly known under the project names "Panhandle" and "Platinum", the yacht was built by Blohm + Voss and Lürssen.[2]

It was bought by Platinum Yachts FZCO of Dubai, UAE, and shipped to Dubai in a floating dock. The partly finished steel hull and superstructure were completed by Platinum Yachts, who also managed the interior design to match the requirements of the new owner, completed the interior and exterior outfitting of the yacht and delivered the vessel in 2006 complete with full Lloyds Register certification.[citation needed]

In 2008, the vessel's air conditioning installation was upgraded to suit the Middle East climate conditions in order to cope with the higher heat load as experienced in the Persian Gulf region. (Her original design specifications were based upon Mediterranean conditions.

Boat Named "A" Megayacht Andrei Melnichenko

At 394'0" feet, A is a mega yacht owned by 36-year old Russian Billionaire Andrei Melnichenko. Designed by Philippe Starck, A is reminiscent of a submarine warship. Her unique shape and name has brought A some attention, including being dubbed the "ugliest yacht in the world" by a Wall Street Journal columnist and incurring rebuke from yacht enthusiasts that the design makes this pleasure cruiser look like a "stealth yacht" or naval destroyer. The mega yacht's name "A" is a tribute to Andrei Melnichenko and his wife Aleksandra Nikolic. A was built to be bigger and more expensive than Pelorus, the pride of Russian Billionaire Roman Abramovich, (owner of the Chelsea Football Club) who has since commissioned a new mega yacht called Eclipse.

Super Yacht Video Ferretti 630

Ferretti 620, result of cooperation between Studio Zuccon International Project, the AYT (Advanced Yacht Technology), the Group’s naval research and design centre and the team of architects and designers of Ferretti Group’s Centro Stile, replaces and re-examines the Ferretti 592, from which its origin and inspiration come. Ferretti 620 features spacious areas for socialising, both on the main deck and externally. The lower deck has two large guest cabins and a full-beam master cabin with large, open view windows, typically a characteristic of much larger yachts. Externally, the profile has been made ‘lighter’ through the insertion of four large windows in the hull: two large windows with portholes which can be opened have been fitted at bow, in the VIP cabin, and two oval windows with double portholes light the guest cabins. The cockpit has been extended in length and rendered more usable through insertion of a fixed teak table and relocation of the gangway to the left – a typical solution for much larger yachts – in order to make the access point for boarding more functional.
