My ex-boss once sailed from South Africa all the way down to Florida in his mini yacht. People always talk about travelling the world but they usually do it via flight. Usually those with disposable income are fortunate enough to experience that but even fewer people are able to travel around the world in a ship of their own. How cool would that be? It would certainly be one hell of a trip experiencing the beauty the world as well as going through scary thunderstorms out in the middle of the ocean.
My first pit stop would be the d’Albora Marinas in Australia where I can go and pick up my fiance where she currently resides. After that, spend an entire year going to every popular destination across the globe. And even better if it was in the amazing Migaloo, a state-of-the-art and luxurious super yacht that is a yacht-submarine hybrid named after the albino humpback whale. The Migaloo super yacht is a futuristic watercraft designed by an Austrian industrial design studio Motion Code: Blue.
The super yacht is still in the conceptualization stage and designed for the super rich which means I will have to pick another boat. This billionaire’s playground features things like a helipad, 8 meter swimming pool, cinema room, a gym, six decks, a library, and a number of lounges.
The hull of the Migaloo super yacht is 11 meters wide which makes it identical to the military submarines out there. When the Migaloo is submerged, all of the furniture is put away in large storage compartments under the granite decking and the pool’s bottom raises up to the main deck level. A telescopically extendible roof will provide shade and follows the contour lines of the hull when closed.
There are two hatches on the ship on each end which can be converted into large beach terraces and provide access to the water. The tower and hull have large pressure proof glass windows which provide lucky guests with an amazing view of the ocean when the Migaloo is submerged. The craft will also be equipped with the latest technologies to help with smooth navigation and communication with the outside world.
According to Motion Code: Blue, the Migaloo super yacht concept is the result of extensive research and the company’s past experience in the yacht market. There is a high demand from high-profile clients who are seeking a unique and stunning design along with features not seen on conventional yachts and the Migaloo is the potential answer to these requests.
The foundation of the Migaloo is based on US Naval submarines in terms of design and performance. For example, the Migaloo will be able to submerge to a depth of 790 feet. Can your yacht submerge to crazy depths? If so, it’s not coming back up to the surface! The Migaloo super yacht is taking luxury boating to a completely different level. No word on what the price would be for such a unique yacht but you can count on it being an astronomical price.
