Imagine what it would be like to own a yacht of your very own, one that was large enough to accommodate you and all of your closest friends and family with the comfort of a five-star hotel. For most people, this is nothing more than a dream. Even in circles where people tend to have a great deal of money, it can be difficult to find a yacht that's capable of doing all of these things. That's largely because even the most expensive yachts tend to have limitations. After all, it's hard to pack as many amenities into something that floats on the water as can typically be found in the world's top hotels. Some might even say that it's impossible. Perhaps it was, at one time. However, all of that has changed since the 443 foot gigayacht 'Sunrise' came along. This yacht really does have it all, and it starts with its massive size, more than four times bigger than many other yachts.
A Design Like No Other
Most people would never even attempt to create a design like this. After all, the exterior space on this boat equals approximately four football fields. That's right, there is more than 4,000 yards of exterior space on the futuristic looking boat. Truth be told, it looks more like something from outer space than it does a yacht, gracefully floating on the water like a giant, futuristic bullet that pierces the waves as opposed to merely plodding through them. Designed by Italian Robert Curto, it is a design that most people would have emphatically declined to have anything to do with. This particular individual has always been known for pushing the envelope when it comes to his designs, often creating something that looks more like a piece of art than a boat. This particular example looks like a yacht from the future, all while looking like something that should be hanging up in one of the finest paintings ever created. It very much is a work of art, from its massive exterior to the luxurious and detailed interior that leaves absolutely nothing to chance.
About That Interior
As previously mentioned, the interior of this yacht is much more akin to a five-star hotel than anything else. In fact, it's absolutely breathtaking. There's plenty of space. There is absolutely no reason to fear being cramped in this particular yacht. In addition, the use of natural light, coupled with it's natural wood finish, blue area rug and furniture upholstered in blue make it feel like you're in one of the finest rooms you could ever hope to be in, not like you're in a vessel floating on the water. If that's not enough for you, consider the fact that it has amenities such as an observatory and not one, but two swimming pools. That's right, the yacht has an outdoor swimming pool and a separate, indoor pool for those who wish to have a little bit more control over their environment. The indoor pool keeps you from getting too hot in the daytime or to cool at night. It also means you don't have to worry as much about getting sunburned. There are other amenities that shouldn't be ignored as well. For starters, the yacht has its very own gym and its own cinema. Think about what it would be like to be able to sail across the seas, all while staying in shape and seeing your favorite films. Perhaps the best thing is that this monster of a yacht is more than big enough to accommodate all of these things without making it feel like everything is being crammed into one tiny space.
The performance of this yacht is nothing to sneeze at, either. Its massive hole is made entirely of steel, yet it's low aerodynamic design allows it to cruise at 18 knots. If you really want to get where you're going, you can ratchet up the power and travel at a whopping 24 knots, something that very few yachts ever manage to achieve. The truth is, this yacht is absolutely massive in size, yet it is designed in such a way that it is capable of traveling at much faster speeds than most smaller competitors. It's also lightweight, despite its steel hull. If its performance isn't enough to impress you, consider the fact that it has no fewer than 11 guest cabins, along with its own dock for jet skis and a separate area that serves as the nautical equivalent of a toy hauler.
An Impressive Sight
Imagine what it would be like to see this boat with your own eyes. During the day, it's impressive enough but at night, it takes on a whole new aura. With its blue accent lights that reflect on the water, it's something that is sure to get the attention of anyone who is fortunate enough to see it. Everything about it speaks of luxury. The thing that makes it special is that despite its massive size and overwhelming luxury design, it doesn't feel like pure opulence. Everything has been thought out so carefully and so well placed throughout its design that it almost makes it feel like the practical side of luxury, if there is such a thing. One thing is certain, it is a yacht that no one will ever forget, even if they've only been fortunate enough to catch a short glimpse of it from afar. There is no doubt that this yacht will long be remembered as one of the most unique and impressive examples to come along for decades to come. As previously mentioned, the studio that designed it has long been known for creating unique designs that are immediately recognizable. However, they have genuinely outdone themselves this time. It is likely to be a very long time before anyone even comes close to designing anything that could potentially rival this boat.
