Superyacht Range Rover..

These count for true luxury beauty..
a combination between yacht designs and a car!!
This collaboration between Edmiston and Range Rover means that you can now get the feel of the high seas on dry land. Together, Edmiston and Range Rover held a competition in August asking the world's seven leading Superyacht designers to customize a Range Rover. The cars should match the luxury of a yacht. Complete with teak decking, reclining seats, and of course compartments for champagne.

In turn, the winner Andrew Winch's " Sea Rover " was announced at the end of the Monaco Yacht Show held in September. He said ‘As always I approached the challenge from a lifestyle and client point of view, so the car will stand out in the Cote d’Azur, yet work in harmony with our beautiful sailing yacht designs. It is the only mode of transport from private Winch jet to Winch yet.’

The good news is that each of the seven designs are being made to order. The prices for these range from €200,000 to €800,000. The delivery time takes about 3 - 6 months.

I have always loved Range Rovers, this goes out to the designers with their innovative Ranges.
