In a world where a billionaire who has never held elected office or expressed a consistent policy position can run for president of the United States of America, there could also be a super yacht designed to showcase a car collection.

Designed by Holland-based Sea Level Engineering, the CF8 Future Concept yacht, if built, would be 80 meters long and have a top speed of 18 knots. This Star Destroyer-shaped billionaire birdcage would also include a helipad, infinite pool and sun lounge on the top deck and an open-air swimming pool below.

In addition, it would have all the pointless opulence someone who can afford a super yacht might expect to find, like a movie theater, a small-watercraft hangar, two indoor lounges and a multi-deck glass rare car exhibition space.

If your first thought is, "No one is going commission one of these things," think again: Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko launched his sailing yacht—named "A"—in 2015. The 468-foot monstrosity has room for up to 20 guests, and according to Forbes super yacht/luxury travel/technology writer Bill Springer, the combined size of A's three sails is about the size of a football field. The project wasn't cheap, reportedly setting Melnichenko back more than $400 million.
