White Rabbit claims the title as the world's largest trimaran. Delivered by Echo Yachts in 2018, she boasts not only an eye-catching staircase but also a snazzy elevator which runs from the lower deck to the sundeck with ease.

The lift is glass fronted and features the deep lilac Oliver Treutlein carpet seen throughout the yacht's living spaces, which becomes mottled with foot traffic and adds layers to the design.
