Here at Gear Patrol, we often joke about luxury SUVs such as the Toyota Land Cruiser being opulent land yachts. Well, Polish automobile customizing firm Carlex Design has taken that concept to its literal extreme with the G-Yachting — a modified Mercedes G-Wagen that goes heavy on the wood.

The G-Yachting is a top-spec Mercedes-AMG G63 that’s been decked out in what appears to be yacht-worthy wood trim. But that’s not the sole attraction here; photos show a choice between both white and brown leather interiors, and you even score custom “G-Yachting” logos on the headliner and spare tire cover. The interior mods make the brushed silver roof and big 22-inch rims on the exterior seem almost tame by comparison.

Carlex made no mention of pricing for this Lonely Island-featuring-T-Pain-worthy conversion, but we suspect it won’t be cheap. The one G-Class interior conversion shown on their site costs a little above $26,000, and takes about 45 days to complete. This conversion involves exterior modifications as well. You also, of course, need a Mercedes-AMG G63 to modify, and that starts at $156,450 MSRP.

Of course, if you don’t want to send your G-Class all the way to Poland, Mercedes can do a delightful job making your G-Class feel special by customizing to your specific tastes. The carmaker has no fewer than 34 paint colors, 30 upholstery options, and seven different trims on offer for the newest Geländewagen.
