Designers have drawn up plans for a luxurious, space-aged superyacht – based on the famous Roswell UFO.
The concept craft is inspired by the supposed discovery of a crashed alien spacecraft at a ranch near the New Mexico town in 1947.
Mysterious pieces of silver debris were reportedly found at the scene and the superyacht’s Monaco-based designer George Lucian says he wants his ‘My Roswell’ vessel to feature similar colours and material.
The UFO theme does not stop there with Lucian planning on making the ship as elusive as possible on the high seas.
Sharp angles and a reflective hull surface have been included to intentionally minimise radar detection while it will cruise in near silence with fully electric running capability.
Lucian said he wanted to create ‘an iconic worldwide recognisable yacht inspired from the future’ – complete with a helicopter deck, swimming pool and enough space for 12 guests and 12 crew.
The result is a jaw-dropping vessel which he says is inspired by the UFO saga in America more than 70 years ago. The US military have said the item was a nuclear test surveillance balloon, however conspiracies still abound about the otherworldly source of the object.
The entirely aluminium 213ft yacht is designed to have full electric running capabilities, supported by two diesel electric engines and large electric panels that cover the numerous horizontal surfaces of the superstructure of the vessel.
‘The shape, colour and texture of the material covering the yacht are similar to the materials found at the Roswell Incedent UFO crash.’
The designer made waves in 2017 with the bold ‘Dare To Dream’ superyacht concept, which saw a 330ft airship tethered to the vessel.
His new concept is equally as eye-catching. He said:
‘Unlike its radar footprint, its presence in any harbour will for sure be anything else but discrete.
‘On the bow side of the main deck you can find a large outdoor covered living area, including a beam length swimming pool, a lounge and a dining area.
‘This shall be the main living area of the yacht, being connected to the main salon and the stern deck with large glass doors and walls, giving the sensation of a huge open loft like space.
‘The bridge deck is located on the upper deck, together with a helicopter platform, and a sky lounge. The yacht can welcome onboard 12 guests together with 12 crew members.’
