New Luxury Mega-Yacht: 10,000 Sf. Floating Super-Mansion

Less like a leisure craft and more like a 10,000 square-foot, three-level villa on the water, this incredible (and expensive) floating home can hardly be called a houseboat. After all, it is the opposite of the typical built-to-the-borders model of immobile houseboat – and looks like anything but a converted ship of the sea.

Think it, perhaps, like a personal cruise ship – private parties only. At over 175 feet long and 100 feet wide there is room for a dozen guests and just as many crew members to run this water-riding resort. The plan calls for over ten thousand square feet of usable space, all made to move smooth and fast across the surface of a lake, sea or open ocean. A super-silent, high-efficiency motor is great, but there will be no sailing on this ship unfortunately.

Constructed from water-resistant leather and wood, this vessel is built to open up and truly travel – but still features the interior design and high-end amenities of a three-story luxury home, from lounges and dining rooms to libraries and on-board spas. Even if you could not afford to buy this, imagine even chartering one for the weekend – talk about the ultimate getaway, you could escape to anywhere and still live it up in style!

The broad and low-lying footprint of the boat provides for maximum land-like stability even on the high seas, both for safety and comfort reasons. This ship – dubbed the WHY (but perhaps better would be: why not?) – is a joint design venture for sale from yacht-maker Wally and French luxury brand Hermes, truly a stunning blend of nautical engineering and high style.
