Zion: Bhushan Powar reveals 110m concept with giant "glass eye"

4 May 2022• Written by Tom McGhie

India-based studio Bhushan Powar Design has unveiled renderings of a 110 metre superyacht concept named Zion, characterised by a large “glass eye” towards the bow.

Acting as a viewing gallery for guests, the feature provides guests with 360 degree views of the ocean while resembling a large sea-creature from an outside glance.

Speaking about Zion’s otherworldly looks, designer Bhushan Powar said: “The yacht takes inspiration from a ‘Black Hole’. It should attract the eyes with its modern elegance.”

While the main visual attraction of Zion is the glass viewing gallery, its inside is filled with amenities. An owner’s suite is located at the main deck, with electrically operated sky lounge balconies on either side. Her main deck features open dining space, illuminated by the glass bottom of the infinity swimming pool on the concept’s aft deck.

Elsewhere, Zion’s lower deck stores a large garage that houses a selection of tenders, Jet Skis and other water toys. A dedicated gym and open garden space is found at the lower deck, while the area can be transformed into a sunbathing lounge through foldout terraces on either side.

A glass elevator services all of Zion’s floors including the large helideck towards stern, while an ample amount of greenery found on Zion’s exteriors embodies the designer's ethos: “nature is the guiding principle for all our designs,” said Powar. “We always look for something within it to define ourselves.”

A total of 20 guests are housed in luxury staterooms, with room for over 20 crew members.
