The Hareide Design studio has introduced a new take on modern superyacht design, with a 108 metre superyacht which draws heavily from the industrial background of a renowned automotive designer, this modern hybrid concept is the work of art of Einar Hareide, former design director at SAAB Automobile and founder of the aforementioned studio.

“With this hybrid mega yacht 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,” explains a statement from the studio.

Natural design elements such as flowing wood and greenery have been added to this vessel as well, thus reflecting the purpose of this yacht’s hybrid technologies and make passengers’ travels truly wonderful. There are high efficiency solar panels provide the ship with sustainable energy and just enough power to cruise at low speeds without making any noise whatsoever.

And if you don’t consider that enough, an optimal Diesel-electric propulsion is what the designers decided was best in the long run. An elevated dining and viewing area, a tranquil garden surrounding a 20 metre pool and a seamless transition to the water at the stern contribute to an overall vision of providing unparalleled experiences on board. The lifestyle design features include a grand hall, extensive use of glass across the exterior to provide unprecedented views of the surrounding world and a helicopter landing pad to welcome guests on board the Scandinavian concept in style.
