When it comes to the competitive world of superyachts, size appears to be a big consideration. One design firm has taken this to another level and a drawn up plans of a vessel with the dimensions of an oil tanker.
Measuring 918ft in length(double the length of the current largest super yacht.) Plans include a four-storey ski slope - complete with Austrian-themed Apres lodge.
The design is the brainchild of an Austrian firm called MOTION Code: BLUE and is planned to appeal to billionaires in the Gulf, who may like to celebrate their oil-based wealth with a superyacht designed to look like a tanker.
Billionaires will be able to entertain guests across the 11 decks, store five helicopters on board, receive visitors arriving at the three helipads, and relax in the four-deck-high atrium, complete with waterfalls. Plans include eight two-storey VIP suites, another 12 guest cabins, theatres, four beach clubs with access to the sea, concert halls, libraries and offices. Wet garages will store tender boats and toys including speedboats and jet skis so guests can entertain themselves without having to head to the beach. The enormous area can be explored using custom painted BMW 13 electric cars to zip passengers form one end of the boat to another.
A Suezmax oil tanker can normally hold around one million barrels of oil and burn up to 60 tons of fuel on a daily basis to power them through the water.
Good news from crew employment if these plans ever get the go ahead! Although cleaning a vessel this size may put many crew off!
