100 Beautifully Designed Boats

From Recycled Pop Bottle Boats to Aquatic Animal-Themed Watercrafts

— February 14, 2014 — Autos
The summer season is right around the corner and some of us can start thinking about camping, traveling, and sailing on some dynamically designed boats.

Even if you don't have your sea legs yet, these boats are still a beauty to look at. Fancy and luxurious yachts with basement-level clubs and a lightup dance floor make for the perfect party location or after Prom celebration. Boldly designed boats featuring a sturdy place for a BBQ allow two summer favorites to come together in perfect harmony, providing even ten times more fun for your wild water-based adventure.

These boat designs range from sleek sci-fi styles to Eco-friendly furnishings.
