The Incredible $500 million Superyacht

We don't know who first gave the apocryphal advice that, "You can tell a lot about a person by their shoes", but those of us who don't possess the observational prowess of Sherlock Holmes need a little more help. Like a look in their garage. If they've got a gleaming piece of German engineering, they're probably some sort of manager. Ferrari? Retired business owner. Private jet? CEO. Superyacht? Bond villain, and you're probably not in their garage - you're in their lair. 

Soon to be the envy of evil megalomaniacs the world over, this science fiction vision is the STAR - a multimillion pound project from yacht builder Igor Lobanov and engineering consultancy BMT. Designed with the simple aim of being a yacht that "doesn't look like every other yacht" (we didn't realise that was a bad thing), the STAR is more floating hotel than wind-chasing boat. Measuring 132-metres in length and over 60-metres in height, it squeezes some 3500 square metres of luxury interior space into its eight decks, with four lifts helping passengers navigate its vast interior. 

STAR yacht

There's no word yet on whether a client has come forward to help turn the lavish designs of the STAR into a physical reality; with an estimated build cost of around $500 million (£310,247,800, far too many numbers for us to comprehend), we can't imagine what the cost of a cruise would be aboard the STAR. Still, it certainly looks pretty enough to act as the ill-fated lead of a future boat-meets-iceberg disaster film...
