Luminosity has a sundeck crane that was designed to lower a Rolls-Royce Phantom from the very top of the boat, where it would sit on display, to a waiting landing craft deployed from the boat’s bowels. Why, you may well ask, wouldn’t you simply put the Phantom inside on a lower deck so it can roll straight onto the landing craft, especially as you’ve got almost 6,000 gross tonnes to play with? Well, that’s missing the point a little – you can’t sip a cocktail in the sun and check out your new Roller if it’s in some garage down below. This is a boat that takes the concept of “no compromise” and straps a few Saturn V rockets to it. Examples abound: head heights in some areas reach three metres, and there’s 800 – yes, 800 – square metres of exterior glass. Meanwhile, a vast video wall runs all the way up the 18-metre, five-deck stairwell featuring a dynamic scene that changes throughout the day, with digital butterflies that follow you as you ascend or descend. It might just be the perfect boat for our times – a slightly mad but wonderful distraction from the headlines.
