The Yacht Has Origami Design - as part of the news series by GeoBeats.
An Italian designer took home the 2009 Millennium Yacht Design Award for an origami styled boat.
Dubbed as a superyacht, its walls fold which allow it to reach higher speeds.
While the yacht is folded or closed, it resembles a torpedo and the aerodynamic design allows for faster ocean cruising.
When the boat is unfolded, or opened, the luxury aspect is revealed, showing a massive living area. The designer told CNN, “I wanted to create a yacht that had an entirely different image from the other boats and wanted an opposite styling to their soft and flowing lines."
The origami boat offers a 360 degree view. It can operate for several hours with zero emissions, letting ocean goers experience a silent, peaceful cruise.
There's the shower that opens directly into the ocean and the glass roof also houses two hammocks.
