As trepidation concerning COVID-19 begins to wane, Americans are pulling out all stops when it comes to vacation spending. At the start of the summer, the Allianz Partners estimated that Americans would spend roughly $194 billion on vacations. That would be a 26% increase over 2021 and a 91% boost from pre-pandemic spending levels in 2019.

Not only has the average American’s vacation grown pricier and more elaborate, but the nation’s wealthiest are also seeking over-the-top experiences. That’s where super yachts like the “Forge,” a 262-foot explorer-yacht concept designed by Anthony Glasson of M51, come in.

Created for the adventurous traveler — and capable of withstanding any weather conditions from the icy seas of Alaska to warm Caribbean waters — the yacht also includes a helipad.

But what really sets the yacht apart is its unique design, evoking the silhouette of a volcano in the water. A “pyramid-shaped superstructure in obsidian black and sharp angular decks,” creates the look, according to Boat International.
