“Of course it’s going to reach a point where the joke gets old,” he wrote on his website, “but that’s OK, I know the next stupid Internet craze is just around the corner.”
Their website is, on the other hand, terribly classy. Featuring a login box that wishes one a good morning and the snooty rejoinder “By Appointment Only,” it concludes with some semiliterate PR copy written by someone who uses punctuation like an 11 year-old chav.

If DesignworksUSA was involved, you can bet that function doesn’t take a backseat to form. In fact, the only reason they made that gorgeous exterior is to create a more spacious interior. The tall front sundeck allows for increased headroom, while the vessel’s heightened sides protect occupants from the elements. We don’t see why anyone would leave the inside of the boat, though – the cockpit offers a fold-out grill and an optional bar in addition to panoramic ocean views. Thankfully, an adaptive rudder and iBoat are nowhere to be found.
