PROJECT METAVERSE – OVERVIEW
PROJECT METAVERSE is the worlds first Super Yacht NFT and combines the vision of legendary designer Gregory C Marshall with highly acclaimed Delta Marine Shipyard with the end result being a top pedigree new construction project destined to leave a long lasting legacy on the yachting industry.
PROJECT METAVERSE NFT is a first of its kind new construction project using custom augmented realty technology designed to provide the client with the ultimate metaverse build experience. Throughout the entire build process the client will be able to meet Gregory Marshall, myself and the Delta team in the metaverse as we build this historic super yacht.
The design behind PROJECT METAVERSE clearly has ties to the award winning 45m custom expedition yacht BIG FISH which was delivered back in 2010 and has been consistently cruising the remote regions of the worlds oceans ever since.
PROJECT METAVERSE features a full displacement steel hull & composite superstructure which takes advantage of the expertise offered by Delta Marine Shipyard who is a world leader in this segment of the market. 1245 GRT assures large volume on every deck. A maximum speed of 16.5m can be achieved while a 4,000nm is possible at a cruising speed of 12 knots. She sleeps 14 guests in 7 spacious en-suites and up to 18 crew.
Key design features onboard include touch-and-go helicopter operations on the bow, expansive beach club with 37m of fold down platforms, elevator servicing every deck, handicap accessible, 2 VIP cabins located on the main deck forward, 4 guest cabins on the lower level with direct access to the beach club, commercial grade galley, unique crows nest viewing level above the sundeck, massive glass bottom pool located aft on the main deck over the beach club, 87 square meter owner’s apartment with private balconies and spa pool, and tender garage located forward with gull-wing doors allowing for easy access when deploying or retrieving tenders/submersible/or toys
STATEMENT FROM THE BROKER
PROJECT METAVERSE is a collaboration between Gregory C Marshall Design and Delta Marine Shipyard combining two of the best in their respected fields to build what is destined to be an iconic global explorer. Top pedigree, full custom and this design will set itself apart by incorporating build techniques that have never been implemented before thus the origin of the name PROJECT METAVERSE.
Expanding on the success of the 45m Big Fish, PROJECT METAVERSE features some amazing features that set her apart from other designs: large open beach club with multiple bathing platforms, crows nest viewing deck, glass bottom pool, tender garage forward, and a private full beam owner’s suite complete with balconies on both the port & starboard sides one with a spa pool.
Every detail on this design has been well thought out and assures that each deck flows smoothly from bow to stern – crew can access each deck efficiently with minimal interruption to the owner & guest parties, crew can handle tender operations seamlessly.
This project is waiting for a buyer to be introduced so that we can customize the final details, interior decor package, and work through any modifications to the build they feel are necessary for their personal requirements, lifestyle, and intended usage.
Final pricing will be determined by the final LOA, gross tonnage, fit and finish of the interior decor package requested by the owner, and options/features/modifications incorporated into the final design.
Final delivery date will depend on when technical specifications and contracts are finalized. We estimate a 32 month build period from once that is accomplished.

STATEMENT FROM CLOUD YACHTS
We set out to make the world first NFT yachts with industry design icons like Gregory Marshall, we accomplished step 1 with an overwhelming support from the yachting community. Greg and I quickly realized the NFTs we have created have incredible utility which sent us down a pretty deep rabbit hole. From this deep dive, Project Metaverse NFT was born. With the help of Alex Clarke & Delta Marine we can now manage a very complex build process with 1000’s of data points inside the NFT. The meta data will be stored on the block chain and only accessible to the owner of the NFT. Its an exciting use of new technology and we are very aware this is just the start.
