FrontRunners: See Creature

The profile of Schöpfer Yachts’ first project, called the Oculus (www.schopferyachts.com)—Latin for “eye”—is supposed to evoke the eye socket and jawbone of a whale or fish. The boat’s nontraditional shape is not so surprising, considering that Schöpfer Yachts was founded, in January 2008, by E. Kevin Schöpfer, the Boston architect who designed the International UFO Museum in Roswell, N.M. His boat-design firm has yet to receive an order for the Oculus, which would require two and a half years to complete and would have an estimated price of $95 million.
