The world’s first yacht made of stainless steel was shown at the 60th annual International Boat Show.
The vessel of Mansion Yacht is 9,000-square-foot for the base. There is the entertaining area of 1600-square-foot and the viewing space of 3300-square-foot on the front deck. The Mansion Yacht has 5 bathrooms. The boat stands on four 18-feet hydraulic legs which keep the construction above water and give the impression of its floating. However, it is not a yacht in fact. The boat can’t replace an ocean cruiser.
"It does a whole bunch of other things that a normal yacht doesn't do. It definitely is a great addition to the yacht family" - Bruno Edwards from Mansion Yachts told.
Due to the decision to make the hull entirely of stainless steel, the maintenance expenditures decrease in the future. Usually, it is 25% of the annual maintenance of a yacht made of other materials. Moreover, the ship equipped with 72 solar batteries which run out 15 kW.
Some billionaires have already taken an interest in this vessel. The price of the base will be $12 mln.
