Proposed 55-foot Paper Boat Can Hit the Sea

The paper boat concept seeks to turn a treasured childhood activity into a working seagoing vehicle, featuring the same triangular design of the homemade vessel. From a distance, the perfectly symmetrical bow and stern makes it impossible to tell which way's forward, while the boat house dominates the center like black faceless pyramid

Only a closer look reveals tinted windows on all four sides, and two panels that fold down to provide additional deck space and easier access to the water. Clearly this life-sized paper boat can't support multi-day expeditions with its 55-foot length, but it should be perfect for a casual swim.

    Um, there are countless people who "sea-stead" on 40' vessels out there. That's months at a time, out at sea. I used to live aboard on a 30' sloop comfortably as a bachelor sailor. A 55-foot vessel would be the boat equivalent of a 3 bedroom condo, and could probably do weeks at sea. Might wanna do a smidgen of research on boats before posting erroneous statements, journalist.

    Looks cool, but like most concept yachts (and many yachts in general) it raises the question: why on earth would I want one? Okay, it looks great, but other than that there is nothing else going for it...
