Norwegian company Hareide Design has unveiled a new yacht named 108M after its impressive size — 108 meters, or 50 feet longer than a football field. It will feature a garden, floor-to-ceiling windows in the grand hall, and its own private beach. The design is meant to invoke a seamless indoor/outdoor experience so that passengers can REALLY be in touch with nature. It looks a lot more like a luxury hotel than a sea-faring vessel.
Within its six-levels, the ship has an elevated dining room and an upper deck with a garden as well as a 65-foot infinity pool and the back of the yacht slopes down to meet the water, creating a floating beach.
From everywhere inside passengers can enjoy views of the ocean. At low speeds, the yacht is powered by the sun, fed by 3,000 square feet of solar panels. There is a diesel portion of the engine as well that kicks in at higher speeds. Naturally, there’s a helipad — to get to and from the nearest airport with record ease.
Its still only in the concept stage, however. No word on the cost. But, as they say, if you have to ask, you can’t afford it.
