Refresh your on board office with the PC that looks like a yacht

When it comes to luxury stationery for your superyacht office, you’re more likely to think of Mont Blanc pens and Tom Dixon staplers than a desktop computer. These run-of-the-mill, unattractive boxes are often tucked out of sight beneath desks – unless, of course, you happened to buy yours from Lian Li.

The Taiwanese brand has become famous for turning standard PCs into objects of beauty with past creations including trains, car logos and even spiders. However, its newest release may be the most exciting yet because, as you may have guessed, it’s in the shape of a yacht.

The special edition PC-Y6 is available in white or silver brushed aluminium and boasts five decks, including a miniature flybridge, which allow the owner to view the inner workings of their machine.

Measuring 764mm in length, the chassis supports Mini-ITX boards with room for two 3.5-inch hard drives and two 2.5inch drives along with a graphics card of up to 300mm. However, if you’re more concerned with the aesthetics than the technology, it also comes with a waterproof LED lighting kit allowing you to illuminate your mini yacht in red, blue or green.

Although Lian Li has not yet revealed when the PC will go on sale or how much it is going to cost, the yacht computer will be created in a limited run of just 500. With over 10,000 potentially interested superyacht owners in the world, we suggest you keep a close eye on the PC-Y6 if you want one for your office.
