Michael van Vuuren’s Road Yacht is a sleek, modern hybrid of a vintage car and an opulent yacht. It specifically targets Russia's wealthy class, a culture that idealizes living the life of a seaman aboard a luxurious yacht.

The Road Yacht certainly presents the best of land and sea. Its amenities include a raised compartment that separates the yacht's passengers from its staff; gold trim adds touches of luxury throughout the elongated limousinelike vessel. Eight wheels surround the yacht, but Vuuren hasn't indicated whether these wheels are decorative or functional.

Michael van Vuuren’s Road Yacht is the latest addition to his transportation-focused design portfolio. Stats for Floating Limousines Trending: Older & Chilly
