Ship builders would miss them.

that was an 'electronic' piano.

And only 'yacht rock' is allowed to be played on it.

It might not be a good idea to hire someone to design your interior furnishings and storage spaces that has no concept of the phrase: "Secure for Sea". After 3 minutes in 5' swells, everything's gonna be everywhere.

That's about the level of yacht that sensible people stop at. Much larger and it's a private cruise ship. You need to be able to fit in a launch in a public harbor, shouldn't have to use a smaller ship to get to shore.

I enjoy watching this guy even though I have no desire to own anything larger than a paddleboard, and I have to say this is by far the most interesting thing he's had on his series.  Boats/yachts are completely predictable- until you get into absurd sizes there are limited ways to arrange things in minimal space, and all these builders seem to pretty much copy each other.

This at least looks good, probably is easy on gas (for a yacht) since you can sail it and is actually different.  I'm surprised it's not a lot more than $4M.

Why is it silly to make something that is resistant to seawater spray subby?

I don't think that piano is available to the general public.  I remember it being announced as a concept, but it's not for sale anywhere.  Somebody has connections.

So the crew is a bunch of seamen, and a pianist?

Yeah, but how does it sail?  It's just a really cramped, overpriced hotel room until it's under sail.

I'd say it's more likely anyone with the cash for a yacht like that had enough to buy a Roland prototype.

Trik: that was an 'electronic' piano.


I would hope so. A real piano made of carbon fiber would sound like shiat.

Trying to imagine what it even would sound like, let alone the practicalities of it.

It's not even a piano. It's a keyboard. There are no strings, no hammers, none of the acoustical sympathies that an actual piano possesses.

Correct. It's a digital piano and designed to feel and sound damn close to the real thing.  If you read the links, they put hammer feel and sound in there.  I haven't played one but I think it's an ideal choice for a yacht - less worry about salt water and no need to tune it.  I knew a guy that had an upright piano in a VW bus, it was never in tune.
