Schaaf Custom 82: A club yacht with (Gull)wings

This 25m-long, 6.5m-wide floating glass pavilion is not the latest addition to the ever-expanding market of urban houseboats. Instead, it’s the vision of a yacht built to host events for up to 250 people – plus a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG…

Of course, the classically proportioned supercar serves only as a pretty form of inspiration – the rear platform could accommodate any car that the organisers chose to bestow it with. Schaaf envisions it as (literally) the perfect platform from which to launch a new vehicle.

Four parties at a time

The yacht has been designed to host up to four parties independently of each other – there’s an open upper deck, a lower lounge/presentation room, and another deck from which to absorb the chosen car’s details close-up. But perhaps most impressive is the glass viewing platform, which can be lowered or raised hydraulically. Further details can be found at
