Luxury Yachts and similar

Trust me, it's a yacht…







Of course, the fact that it was designed by one Monsieur Starck for a Russian Billionaire won't surprise anyone...

Some of it looks great! (The hull.) :)

Some of it looks bland & awkward. (The superstructure.) ::)

That's because it's the mothership and ark of the purple lizard men, you know the beings who really run the planet,
and it'll motor off once they melt the ice caps all at one go with their giant solar mirrors.

A former colleague used to PM mega yatchs for the rich and secretive.  He showed us one of his photo albums on one occasion, this particular vessel had a stainless steel bow specifically so it would never suffer the rust stains seen where anchors damage the paint on other ships.

A bit "glossy" for my tastes but beautifully restored & outfitted. 8)

The bridge looks steam punk with the radar and polished wood and brass.

It looks like what it is, an actual steam powered yacht, no Steampunk silliness required.
Plus remember Steampunk adds purposeless gears and various "brass" constructions that
flat out wouldn't work and be heavier than if made of steel or iron.

It would be interesting to see a pic of Delphine's bridge before modernization.
