That is one strange looking boat..
I had to look at the pics about 4 times before I realized "OK I see the pier or dock its suppose to be at..where is it?"
To realize it WAS the boat.
Minimalism is one thing..'flat and wedge shaped' is another...
What an ugly piece of marine craft; and I have plenty to compare to in southern Florida.
Paul Allen's boat was docked not far from me and even that looked better. Also it was a typical "mine is bigger than yours" design of course.
[citation][nom]edogawa[/nom]It looks like some retro stationary building(or mobile pier), not what I'd call a boat.If I had his kind of money, my boat would have sharks with lasers shoot out.[/citation]
Who says it doesn't have those hidden? He has to protect future iphone designs from james bond ...
[citation][nom]internetlad[/nom]I lol'd at the "iPod shuffle to everybody who worked on the boat"Really? A shuffle? Couldn't have sprung for at least the nano?He must have been feeling the economic squeeze, what with only being paid $1.00 a year and all.[/citation]
I'm sure all the engineers and builders were paid quite handsomely for building a custom yacht. The shuffle is like $40 tho, which is probably the equivalent of them working an extra half hour
[citation][nom]s3anister[/nom]In any case, you'd think the workers would have gotten a nano at least... A shuffle is seriously miserly.[/citation]
Just to make sure it's clear, it's likely that shuffles were given to EVERYBODY who worked on the ship, even the loading dock guy. It's not like the boat was staffed by 12 people, and each one got a shuffle, we're probably talking about 100+ people minimum.
That being said, looks ugly, and seems to follow the "form before function" approach as expected.
