This crazy star is actually a superyacht

When it comes to being filthy rich, pretty much everything about life is awesome. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. The only drawback is having to keep up with the Hiltons by flaunting your wealth. Which, is a pretty 1% problem to have, but it's still a problem.
 
Here to save the day: this absurd-looking, star-shaped superyacht with a submarine deck.
 
Behold the “Star”, proposed by marine designer Igor Lobanov and UK-based firm BMT Nigel Gee.

Intended for use either as a private yacht or even as a floating hotel, the super-sleek, ambitious vessel -- which began as a doodle on a napkin of yacht designer Alex Malybaev -- will have eight observation decks and a submarine deck, with four elevators that’ll whisk guests swiftly between them.

Repeat: it's a private yacht with four elevators.

The 197-ft tall, 433ft-wide boat can reach speeds of up to 18 knots, and will have as much as 37,673sq-ft of inside space. 

Which will look something like this:

There’s enough room to sleep 36 people and comfortably fit the 200 guests you’ll inevitably invite to your insane yacht parties. Because everyone loves yacht parties.

Oh, and there’s even a helipad where you can park your chopper. After all, if you can afford to own this yacht, you can definitely afford your own helicopter.
 
As yet, no price for the superyacht has been revealed, though. Which, as MasterCard commercials taught for about a decade, some things in life are priceless.

Though in this case, the star-shaped vessel's price is likely astronomical.
