We had no idea you could have an entire ‘castle’ on your yacht

Swiss design and engineering firm Emporio Armani has designed a design for a superyacht called “The Castle,” that would feature a “floating hotel,” more than 60 cabins, and more than 150 creature comforts.

However, this isn’t a straight out replica of what we’ve come to expect from massive-sized vessels.

Rather, the 110-meter yacht, whose innovative design was recently revealed in a 659-page concept, takes the form of a massive-and-luxurious house, where guests could expect a private space with sweeping views across Lake Geneva, while maintaining access to showers, gyms, and libraries.

Other details include a spa, cinema, even a community kitchen.

Aside from the idea of privacy, perhaps the most noteworthy factor, which you might not expect, is that the yacht’s main accommodation, the five-star executive apartments, are “distinctly asymmetrical, so that no one cabin has the same-size floor space.”

The same firm has also designed a series of luxury cross-country cars, called the Emporio Turbo Train, which is set to feature wooden flooring, custom lighting, as well as wine-bottle bottle openers and accessories.

As Car and Driver notes, the ultimate version of this dream car would be the “Spitfire-sized” Emporio Rio (sadly, the name is forever linked to the deadly “Rio” of Valerio Valerio Sr., one of the World War II’s greatest hill-country army commanders).

The planned 58-ton yacht will be made by holding the designs for such a piece of transportation until 2021, when they will be all finished and ready for buyers to snatch up.
