Recession? You'd never know it aboard the Oculus and Infinitas super yachts.
Both ships, by SchĂ¶pfer Yachts, offer plenty of distractions from any troubles felt back on shore.
Oculus, the company's first designer craft, steeps up to 12 guests in $95-million's worth of nautical luxury. The 250-foot vessel features 12-foot ceilings, elevator tube, retractable wave-guards, and lavish second-story "Owner's suite."
"The exterior styling is representative of the jaw and eye socket bone structure of large oceanic fish and mammals," says SchĂ¶pfer's website. This killer-whale frame is fashioned for "long distance cruising," and the beast can hit 25 knots.
Up on the third level, the captain gets his own quarters and pilothouse, set aside from the passengers' salon and deck.
