Love it or hate it? The most divisive superyachts

love it or hate it divisive yacht design


The glass covered divisive yacht

After a very long conversion process, a 1977 Dutch-built navy frigate was transformed into the glass covered 141 metre superyacht Yas. The first photos of the dolphin-inspired superyacht Yas underway emerged in 2015, showing off the incredible expanse of glass on the yacht's superstructure.

But it's not just for outward appearances, the yacht's interior is bathed in light thanks to this glass-filled exterior design. Love it or hate it, Yas – the eighth largest yacht in the world – is certainly a shining example of divisive yacht design.
