Epiphany is one of designer Andy Waugh's most extravagant superyacht concepts, and could become one of the world's most expensive. Andy Waugh
Waugh estimates the boat, if built, could cost as much as $667 million. Andy Waugh

Waugh has designed several superyacht concepts. Expedition "is a high-volume 75-meter explorer yacht with unparalleled levels of accommodation," he says. It features a permanent helipad, heli-garage, spa with sauna, steam room and massage room. It also has a private cinema and an infinity pool. Andy Waugh
The 45-meter Revolution, he says, pushes boundaries with its trident-style roof that evokes sea gods Neptune and Poseidon, while its logo incorporates Japanese samurai symbology. "It's an aggressively-styled concept intended to be a stark contrast to conventional yacht styling," Waugh says. Andy Waugh
Waugh describes Nouveau as "a concept that pushes the boundaries of the yacht aesthetic to an extreme." A water feature runs from the sun-deck Jacuzzi, across the bridge and owner's decks and then down a water-slide into the main deck pool, giving the feeling of being at one with nature and the seascape.

Ascendance is "a highly-efficient 111-meter superyacht designed to be 25% lighter than a conventional yacht of similar specification," Waugh explains. Complete with a retractable helipad and intimate "fire-pit" area sunken into the deck to create the ideal sociable environment, it also boasts a swimming pool on the main deck which provides a dramatic waterfall feature to act as a focal point for the rest of the deck.
