SAN FRANCISCO, March 14, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Cloud Yachts welcomes Alex Clarke, one of the world's top superyacht brokers, into the metaverse by offering clients augmented reality technology to build their new superyacht.
PROJECT METAVERSE is a 63-meter NFT yacht designed by naval architect Gregory C Marshall, winner of the 2021 Super Yacht of the Year Award for his groundbreaking superyacht ARTEFACT.
Priced at $95,000,000, PROJECT METAVERSE will be sold as an NFT on the Ethereum blockchain.
North American shipyard, Delta Marine has agreed to build this historic superyacht. PROJECT METAVERSE launches at the Palm Beach International Boat Show on March 24.
If sold, PROJECT METAVERSE will be the highest-priced NFT.
Cloud Yachts established strategic partnerships with the most reputable names in the yachting industry - such as Bob Denison, Gregory C Marshall, Bannenberg & Rowell, Marco Casali, Alex Jimenez (@TheYachtGuy), and Informa Markets - to design, mint, market, and sell NFTs.
Cloud Yachts gained momentum after the first drop of limited-edition designer series NFTs were available for purchase inside the VIP section of the 2022 Miami International Boat Show.
"Cloud Yachts approached us in late 2021 with a clever concept of minting our superyacht designs as NFTs. To our surprise, 10 Greg Marshall NFTs were quickly sold for 1 ETH each during its debut at Miami International Boat Show. Understanding we were on to something, I began preparing to scale our business with Cloud Yachts," commented Gregory Marshall. "Without revealing all our secrets, it was clear we needed a creative broker who not only has the clients but can also effectively communicate the experience and technology we're offering. Knowing Alex Clarke's impressive superyacht sales history, we're convinced he is the perfect fit for this monumental task."

"When I first heard about the Gregory Marshall NFT new build project, I knew I had to be involved as I feel this will be a revolutionary project and implement a shift in the way yachts are built and sold. I immediately reached out to Greg and expressed my interest. Seeing the result with his last project ARTEFACT, you can't help but feel this will be equally epic," said Alex Clarke. "Greg spent seven years as the mastermind behind ARTEFACT - which won every major award in 2021 - so I asked him, 'Where do you go from here?' and he said, 'The metaverse'. That's all I needed to hear. I am beyond excited to help pioneer this new build process with Gregory Marshall Naval Architects, Delta Marine, and Cloud Yachts. I'm optimistic Denison Yachting will play an important role in locating a Buyer as excited to be part of the PROJECT METAVERSE experience as we are."
Using his connections in the industry, Clarke tapped Delta Marine to be the shipbuilder for Marshall's 63-meter PROJECT METAVERSE.
"Alex knows what it takes to support an owner who just committed 100 million dollars and four years of their life to building their dream yacht. His intimate knowledge of the superyacht build process has become invaluable to Cloud Yachts as we begin to build more sophisticated NFTs like PROJECT METAVERSE. Alex's customers will have the opportunity to build their yacht using first-of-its-kind augmented reality technology specifically developed for superyacht builds. PROJECT METAVERSE is a tailor-made build experience, providing Alex with an upper hand in an ever-changing market," said Zach Mandelstein, CEO of Cloud Yachts.
Together, Gregory Marshall, Alex Clarke, Delta Marine, and Cloud Yachts will list the 63-meter yacht NFT on the MLS. This opens the opportunity to own a limited-edition NFT while also turning it into a new build project.
