This is a 272-foot, military-inspired yacht. Western Australia's Silver Yachts has come up with this concept, and the shipyard teamed up with the Norwegian designer Espen Oeino to create the engineering and exterior of the Silver Loft.

A plumb bow decreases resistance, which allows for a jaunty top speed of 24 knots. The hull and superstructure are designed to be aluminum, and the Silver Loft will be the fifth yacht built by the shipyard. The yacht should be completed in 2017.
