For some reason I am having a really difficult time visualizing those pictures as being of a 47 ft yacht.

Is that a scale model?  It looks much smaller.

I'm curious how well those recessed propellers will work at high speed.

It's pretty much Rolls Royce's first foray into marine engineering, and it shows.

Meanwhile, Volvo Penta has been at it for a century.  Here's their IPS drive, which they can refit any boat to use.  You get better performance, and you can turn on a dime with it.

hogans: It's pretty much Rolls Royce's first foray into marine engineering, and it shows.

from another article:

The Rolls-Royce 450EX yacht tender project is a final year student project by Stefan Monro studying Transport Design at Coventry University. Following the completion of an internship with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Stefan Monro was encouraged to design an accordingly themed project. The Rolls-Royce 450EX superyacht tender project is a student project and in no way officially associated with the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars brand although design direction and assistance has been given in areas to help support the project.

Can I get one with a yacht inside, in case I want to go yachting while I'm yachting?

From looking at other websites, that is just a design for a yacht tender, a smaller boat to run people in to shore from the yacht. In other words, it is the yacht for people who want to yacht while they're yachting.

I thought there already was a perfect yacht for a Bond villain:

That has gotta be the ugliest boat I have ever seen. I would expect something that boxy to come from Volvo.

That right there is a clitoral combat ship.

Because you'll get all the ladies.
