McLaren’s stature in the auto industry as one of the pre-eminent supercar makers in the world is pretty secure. So if you know that your company is looking peachy in the eyes of most, you’re going to need to dive into new territory to find a new challenge.

Apparently, they’ve found that challenge in designing boats, particularly the UltraLuxum CXL, a ridiculous-looking boat that was co-developed by McLaren Applied Technologies. The boat features "state-of-the-art craftsmanship," which, when you look at the renderings, seems to be an understatement. It has retractable outer beams that can be used to stretch the boat out at 23 meters wide across open water and a svelte 11 meters across enclosed spaces.

The multiple decks are also a unique characteristic of the UltraLuxum CXL, further giving proof as to how huge this boat really is. Then there’s the equally expansive interior that features a master cabin, four guest cabins, three crew cabins, a lounge, a dining room, a kitchen, and last, but certainly not least, an optional garage where you can presumably stow a car like, say, the McLaren MP4-12C.

Yeah, we figure McLaren would want that, right?

I never thought McLaren has the guts to design a boat. And it is really amazing to see this one. Great job McLaren.
