Wow, that'e even uglier than the Robert's "world cruiser". So that's what an i-boat looks like. Hmmmm, i-puke.

It bears an uncanny resemblence to the WW1 dreadnoughts. Seriously!--compare some photos.

Sure does. I normally can't bear any sort of "eurostyle" on a boat, slanted windows make me wanna puke. But for some reason I kinda like this. Also looks like some versions of Nemo's "Nautilus". It's all straight lines and angles, very different. I bet the interior is super cool. I could do without the pagoda effect of the superstructure though.

At least the boats operating system is less likely to crash.

A bit like modern buildings fantastic inside but confusing/fugly outside.

Thought these people tried to blend in when on holidays this creation will be noted anywhere!

Bet there are no paper charts on board!
