Sortie en Mer (A Trip Out to Sea)

This interactive simulator by Guy Cotten, a French company specializing in rugged outdoor attire and safety gear, will give you chills. I don’t want to ruin it for you, but the entire experience is about five minutes long. Provided you can survive for that long of course.

Whatever you do on the water this year, please remember to wear your life jacket.

Behold, The Oculus!

We’ve shown a lot of incredible, ultra expensive boats here, but this one trumps them all. This yacht, known as the Oculus, was designed by a US based company called Schöpfer which is “dedicated to the pursuit of advanced yacht aesthetics and technology.”

    Oculus is the first “design launch” of Schöpfer Yachts LLC. This 250-foot vessel was designed by E. Kevin Schöpfer, founder and owner of his namesake company.

    Designed to accommodate 12 guests in extraordinary comfort and style, Oculus is a long distance cruising yacht capable of speeds upwards of 25 knots.

    The exterior styling is representative of the jaw and eye socket bone structure of large oceanic fish and mammals. Featuring a dramatic reverse bow configuration, the yacht’s armature balances an elegant expression of symmetry and structure.
