Guilty, owned by famous art collector Dakis Joannou, is a magnificent work of art by Jeff Koons. Koons used inspiration from a World War I camouflage pattern and, with the help of architect Ivana Porfiri, drew away from the classy yacht design to a more creative design. Expect to see the Guilty yacht in the next Italian Vogue. Via Damon Way and yachts.monacoeye.com
