I think the whole design is a study in contrasts.  There is nothing in sight that really matches up with anything else.
Everything is sort of a little "off topic".  Should that be familiar?  ::)

i think part of the problem is bad choice of lens to take the picture.
the parallax effect makes it look extremely odd thus not helping to show this magnificent workmanship in it's best presentation.
some of the details are really cool, the way the white strips on the stairs lead off onto the floor is quite charming, however put next to all the other white stripes on the floor, the detail gets lost.
both the hand rail and endpost look really nice too, however i don't think they blend in or add to the dynamics overall.
i'm not sure i would want all of this together in this one space, however each element looks well done in it's own right.
i think i'd have to view a few more pictures to give a more definitive answer, however after the initial shock i actually quite like it. throw a couple of contrasting rugs on the floor and it will eat up a lot of the busyness.

Looks great already, wonder what the finish will be?

Some people got more dollars than sense...  I'm just sayin'...   [huh]


Agree @Sparktrician  but look at the lines of that vessel. Pre WW1 bow design matched with those curves. Still, probably rocks and rolls all over the place!  [smile]

Somewhat unexpectedly, the basic price quoted for the boat is less than for the car...

Dunno  [unsure].

I'm not in the market for a yacht, but if I were - I'd consider it.

Why?  Because it's different. And your yacht looks like every other yacht from Miami to Monaco.
