A 63-meter NFT superyacht named Project Metaverse has gone up for sale with Alex Clarke at Denison Yachting in the first newbuild project of its kind.
Project Metaverse was designed by Gregory C Marshall, whose most recent projects include the multi-award winning 80 meter Artifact, and is offered for sale as an NFT on the blockchain for $95,000,000. If sold, the project will be the highest price ever paid for an NFT.
North American shipyard Delta Marine has agreed to build the vessel. So, in addition to owning the non-fungible token for the Metaverse project, the new owner will be able to see the design crossover into the real world.

Project Metaverse builds on Cloud Yachts’ growing portfolio of NFT yachts, the first of which debuted at the Miami Yacht Show in February 2022. Cloud Yachts has partnered with Marshall to create a limited run of superyacht models and sold 10 in Miami at 1 ETH (Ethereum) each.
“Realizing that we were on to something, I started thinking about ways to grow our business with Cloud Yachts,” Marshall said. “It was clear that to bring the Metaverse project to fruition, we would need a creative broker who not only has the customers, but can also effectively communicate the experience and technology we offer. Knowing Alex Clarke’s impressive superyacht sales history, we believe he is the guy for this monumental task.”
“I am beyond thrilled to help initiate this groundbreaking new build process with Gregory Marshall Naval Architects, Delta Marine and Cloud Yachts,” said Alex Clarke, Commercial Broker at Denison Yachting. “When I first heard about Gregory Marshall’s new NFT build project I knew I had to be involved as I believe it will be a game-changing project and will implement a change in the way yachts are built. built and sold.”
Cloud Yachts has partnered with some of the best designers in the industry, including Bannenberg & Rowell and Marco Casali, to design, manufacture, market and sell this new line of digital assets. Project Metaverse will make its official debut at the Palm Beach International Boat Show later this month.
What is an NFT?
An NFT (non-fungible token) is a digital asset that represents a real-world object. What started as a way to buy and sell digital artwork has snowballed into cars, homes, and even superyachts. They are frequently sold in cryptocurrency and are often encoded in the same way.
