Taking flybridges to new heights

You'd need an elevator to access this FB! Imagine the pendulum-like swing in a beam sea.

This luxurious super yacht concept lets passengers ‘touch the clouds’ on its towering viewing deck

Nobody seems to take my three story Manatee idea seriously either.

Frankly, I would only be interested in the boat if it had dynamic positioning instead of an anchor. For that kind of money, I need to have the sunrises and sunsets in the correct orientation to the master suite each day.

Think of positives here--you probably wouldn't get carbon monoxide poisoning from that Honda portable genset you would put on the stern.

True. You should however be on the lookout for banner towing airplanes.

I finally realized what it looks like.
If you turned it upside down, it would closely resemble a ray gun from some 'B' movie.

The designer seems to be sniffing too much whiteout.

I will not subject myself to the pendulum effect of an FB, let alone climbing stairs or ladders. And to expose one's self to drying if not cooling/frigid winds is not my "cup of tea." Gimme a pilothouse every time.

Mark - no drying or temperature issues - you conn from the flybridge temp controlled horizon pool - autopilot remote on the ledge within easy reach for minor course corrections.

Nearly almost half the time, most comfort is having pilothouse doors closed while driving the boat.
