100 Incredibly Innovative Yachts

From Luxe Nightclub Boats to Majestic Mega Yachts

— March 25, 2013 — Autos
International yachts cruise the waters of our lakes and oceans each and every day, flashing luxury, elegance and power everywhere they go. From unique sustainable wing-like yachts to enormous floating island boats, the sky seems to be the limit when it comes to these incredibly innovative yachts.

Most of us dream of one day being able to enjoy a life filled with fantastic luxuries like massive mansions, fast super cars and of course, travelling the waters on a gigantic luxury yacht. Although in most cases this is fairly unrealistic, it is a pleasure to simply marvel at the excellence of these finely crafted and engineered masterpieces. Don't let the enormous price tags or lifestyle deter you -- if you want it bad enough you will get it.
