Yacht Guilty, port of Livorno

The naval architect is Arrabito Naval Architects and the designer is Ivana Porfiri of Porfiristudio. The eye-catching camouflage design is by Jeff Koons and reminds us of the dazzle camouflage used in World War I.

"Eye catching" is a good way to describe this. I like the colors.

VP, this is surely the most interesting paint job I can remember seeing.

The camoulflage on the yacht is most unusual and quite remarkable.

I think the name should be "Look at Me!

I remember the dazzle effect examined in an exhibit here on camouflage at the War Museum.

Quite a name for a yacht!

This is unique, VP, never seen such a painting on a boat.

This is a bit mind boggling VP.. isn't it amazing how the configuration of shape and colour really do confuse the eye. I bet there are a lot of confused fish out there.. they'd be like.. 'What the....' :)

So good! Great shots VP.

Good Lord, what that must have cost. Just to fill it up fuel would probably be about $75,000! Love the design (camouflage) - it really works ... I found it hard to find the lines of the ship. But I wonder why it was named "Guilty." A guilty pleasure, perhaps? Guilty for having so much when so many have so little?

It may be good camouflage out at sea but in port it's an eye catcher for sure!
