Superyacht designed to look like a killer whale

Boston-based architect Kevin Schopfer has designed a $95 million superyacht to look like a killer whale.

Schopfer designed the 76-meter "Oculus" with the idea that luxury yachts should move away from generic boat shapes to something more playful, according to an article on CNN.com. He also designed a 91-meter yacht, Infinitas, to resemble the figure-of-eight shape of an infinity loop.

Schopfer has teamed with naval architecture firm Sparkman & Stevens to build more of the vessels.

"There are several potential clients interested in both Oculus and Infinitas and discussions are ongoing," he told CNN. "And we are also working on several more yachts."
