Norway’s Hareide Design has unveiled its 108M Mega Yacht Concept, and our minds are blown. Its design, elements, and aesthetics will set the yacht apart from its contemporaries. If ever made, it will be a vessel that’s instantly recognizable and genuinely unforgettable. Something along the lines of Sailing yacht A looks nothing like any other superyacht, and one glance is enough to know the identity. Let’s delve into this gorgeous concept that, if realized, will put more than half of the planets sailing yachts to shame-
This slick 355ft floating palace has the usual amenities like lavish interiors, spacious outdoor decks, and a massive 66 feet swimming pool surrounded by soothing flora and fauna. And then there are some not so common luxurious like a party space or the grand hall, aka the hole running right through the hull. Talk about taking in the spectacular views, albeit with a different perspective.
Another striking element is the beach on board. At the stern, the ship seamlessly blends into the sea, allowing cold water to tickle your toes, creating a beach-like effect. The hybrid mega yacht concept feels like a serene villa of the waters dotted with a quiet garden with grass and plants. The multi-story layout also houses ample lounge areas, a dining hall with sweeping views on the upper deck, and a helipad.
‘Today’s megayachts are most often designed like floating luxury hotels with interiors based on traditional luxury. 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,’ said Einar Hareide, founder of Hareide Design.
Beyond beauty, the ‘108M’ deserves accolades for being a large-scale sea vessel with a sustainable energy source in high-efficiency solar panels with lithium-ion batteries (3,000 square feet of solar panels). The ship can change modes to diesel-electric propulsion for cruising at higher speeds.
