Yacht concept brings Rolls-Royce styling to the marina

Rolls-Royce has been making some serious metaphorical waves in the shipping world lately. With designs for autonomous cargo ships and Star Trek-inspired tug boats, it looks like the luxury automaker has no qualms with rolling up its sleeves with the blue-collar set. But that doesn't mean Rolls-Royce has forgotten its luxurious heritage.

Designer Stefan Monro, who recently completed an internship at Rolls-Royce, has drafted a yacht concept that brings the automaker's high-class looks to the waves. At a length just over 47 feet, the Rolls-Royce 450EX yacht is designed as a day cruiser.

Modeled after the Rolls-Royce Phantom, the yacht sports an oversized grill, complete with "spirit of ecstasy" hood ornament. Inside, there's seating for six, along with a wood-lined rear deck which sports a sort of tailgate from which you can dive into the open water. There's no word yet if Rolls-Royce will pick up the design, but if you're looking to get your hands on it, be prepared to dish out some serious coin for a bespoke model.
