This 350-foot megayacht comes with its own private ‘beach’ onboard

Award-winning Norwegian design studio Hareide Design has released new renderings for a concept yacht.

Its name, the 108m, refers to its 108-meter-long “mono hull.” To differentiate itself on the crowded superyacht scene, the boat includes a garden, a “beach” area, two pools, and a double-story “Grand Hall” with an enormous floor-to-ceiling window.

One of the most noteworthy aspects of the ship is near the rear, where the aft of the ship lowers into the water to form its own private beach-like shallow pool.

These features were designed to give the boat a seamless indoor-outdoor experience and provide a connection to nature, according to the designers.

“Today’s mega yachts are most often designed like floating luxury hotels with interiors based on traditional luxury,” Einar Hareide, founder of Hareide Design, told DesignBoom.com. “With this hybrid megayacht concept we want to shift the focus from extrovert admiration to creating a platform for actively experiencing the beauty of nature and the changing elements.”

The design is just a concept for now, but it would certainly make a statement should the plans come to fruition.

Inside, the Grand Hall provides a multiuse space. Its clear glass wall provides fantastic views of the surrounding sea.

The galleys are spacious with clean lines. No matter where you are on the ship, the outside can be clearly seen or felt.

    AN infinity pool on a moving boat. A beach that will just wash away. Stairs without handrails. Let me know when I can buy one.
