The wacky new superyacht concept with a giant glass eye

Must Read

(CNN) – With a record number of supercars entering the market, designers are pushing the limits further and further to ensure that their concepts differ.

However, this new concept from Indian Yacht Design Studio Bhushan Powar design Can be the most exciting to date.

The 110-meter ship named Zion has a spectacular glass dome that looks like a giant eye or a “black hole”.

Serving as a viewing platform for people aboard the superyacht, it offers 360-degree views, and will no doubt attract maximum attention while at sea.

“Our concept attracts the eye with its modern elegance and amazes the owner with deep secrets,” the designers say.

Aside from the dome, which is clearly its specialty, Zion will have a glass bottom infinity swimming pool, as well as a glass elevator that travels from deck to deck.

The flybridge where passengers can relax and enjoy views in “all weather conditions” and the 12-meter helipad are both located on the deck of the ship, which has an aluminum structure.

Impressive features

There are 10 luxurious staterooms on board and a master suite with electrically operated Sky Lounge balconies on the main deck.

The lower deck is made up of a beach club area with gym and open garden space that can be converted into a spacious sunbathing lounge by a foldout terrace on either side.

While it is currently just a concept, design studio founder Bhushan Powar is optimistic that Zion will one day become a reality.

However, he acknowledges that it will take time and research to determine if this is possible.

Located in Goa, Bhushan Powar Design was launched in 2019 and is described as “the first luxury yacht design studio in India”.

Innovative concepts

While designing the concept, the designer took inspiration from the black hole phenomenon.

Powar says the studio’s concepts are largely influenced by the Arabian Sea.

In 2019, the design team unveiled Mori, a 90-meter superyacht concept inspired by the Shortfin Mako Shark.

Zion is one of a number of innovations that have been unveiled this year. Rome-based design company Lazarini’s design studio recently unveiled an air yacht, a new concept that could “ship in the sky” as well as go to the ocean.

Meanwhile, fellow Italian design studio Skystyle showcased its latest design Unique 71, a knife-shaped 71-meter superyacht in January.
