a highlight is a 300-bottle wine cellar under the corridor linking the five guest suites on the lower deck. The corridor floor is one-way glass while the base of the wine cellar is of mirrored glass, so the effect looking down will be of an endless array of wine bottles.


All right, now you're just being silly. You want a house that floats.

The golden ratio is how nature expresses true beauty.

A boat that big with only 300 bottle capacity is silly.

I had a 1200-bottle wine cellar in a 2000 square foot townhouse.

Meh.  I think I prefer the capitalist's gilded-age yachts--brass and steam and teak.

Meh, I'd still take the Octopus.

Triggered much? Yacht building means a lot of jobs, and not at Mickey D wages. The German shipyards were revived on the back of luxury yachts and cruise ships; more power to the rich.

Why the hell wouldn't we? The man made his money and has the right to spend it however he wants.

JFC, grow up.

By 'made his money', you mean 'stole money by underpaying/exploiting workers and/or being born rich enough to make a fortune by playing the stock market'.

Nobody has ever made 'superyacht' levels of money honestly.

It was all the Micky Crap and low wages that he made his money from.  CEO's making 300 to 400 times what the underlings make. Fark him.

I support living wages and no billionaires.

That being said, this is a beautiful vessel. I'm impressed by the choices the owner made in simplifying layout and components, rather than go mega-ostentatious just because he can.

If I had the money, I probably wouldn't have a yacht. A custom sub, though...

Degrees of wealth inequality that reach a certain degree of excess have demonstratively inverse impacts on the wellbeing of the population.  Boy, I feel like such a Molotov cocktail-wielding revolutionary for pointing that out.

Face it, we've become the Ferengi.  "Your employees are the rungs of your ladder to success.  Feel free to step on them."

Why is "yacht designer" still a viable profession?

Oh, that's right, the wealthy have so much money that they can't spend it fast enough. I don't see how that'll ever become a problem.

How is buying a phone which is required to participate in many jobs and other programs comparable to building a behemoth super toy out of precious resources for no functional purpose other than conspicuous consumption?

Justify child and low-wage migrant labor however you like, just be consistent.  If you are going to ramble on about how all uber wealthy people got where they are on the backs of the much less fortunate just acknowledge that you are purposely benefiting from those mush less fortunate also through your consumer and lifestyle decisions.
