The cockpit looks like a 1960s washing up bowl.

Looks like it should belong to the bad guy in a '60s Bond movie or put the driver in a silver jump suit and you could have a super hero from the 40's or 50's. "The Silver Steamer Saves the World!!!!"

Whatever you call it, doesn't seem that practical. Looks like you have to climb over the orange thing to get in and out. Not much deck room for passengers.

The text says that the side folds out with integrated steps etc. (you can just see the shut lines at one point in the video) - which to be fair is probably quite clever design...

prob. one of those boats that will look great close up, you just don't want to see it all at once!

I agree very ugly, and you just know what people will think about the chap when he steps off that in the marina, the word starts with a W and sounds like 'tanker' 8-).

Looks like an exercise in modern art just for the sake of it, you certainly would not miss it and I guess that's the point, these people with super huge megayachts seem to want privacy and people to gawp at them all at the same time.
