The Origami Yacht > Your Boss'

Yachts.  Once used by the Dutch navy to catch pirates in the North Sea, now used as proverbial cock-n-balls for the super rich.  The pinnacle of today's yacht market is the "gigayacht" segment (over 250 feet) which, according to Poder360, has grown 30% since 2007.  Now most of these megayachts are just absurd; with such mindless amenities as a helipad, submarine, waterfall... essentially everything that most sensible people would scoff at.
