UK design studio Harrison Eidsgaard has revealed a 127 metre expedition yacht concept named Rex, which comes complete with a helicopter hangar that converts into a squash court.

Designed for a client who “asked for something different”, Rex features a 20-metre-wide hull, white and grey exterior, and future-proof hybrid propulsion package capable of being converted for hydrogen storage.

Rex's inventory of premium superyacht features include a dedicated helicopter hangar capable of holding an Airbus A160 and converting into a squash court, a second helicopter landing facility and a panoramic lounge with 360-degree views at the top of the yacht.

The swimming pool can be found on Rex's main deck

The 14-metre-long swimming pool, which is located below the helicopter hangar on the main deck, can be enclosed with glass to create an indoor pool for use in colder climates. Elsewhere, the “pod atrium” sits in the 300 square metre aft lounge overlooking the transom and connects the pod lounge to the submerged Neptune lounge, two storey gym and spa.

Accommodation is for a total of 22 guests across a master suite complete with four private terraces, two Jacuzzis and a private gym, and 10 guest suites, each with its own terrace.

The full-beam tender garage has space for a 15-metre expedition vessel and two nine-metre tenders, which can be moored to the walk-around transom aft.
