Grand designs: The most extreme superyacht concepts in the world

1 of 31 1/31


Superyacht concepts come in all shapes and sizes, from evolutionary designs that subtly push the envelope to much more radical ideas that boldly challenge the orthodoxy. We round up some of the most out-there ideas from around the world...

Designed by Kurt Stand, Strand Craft’s California is an extremely spacious yacht, stretching to 135 metres. Its ultra-modern exterior sports large panes of glass, and the three swimming pools on the yacht’s aft decks create the effect of a cascading waterfall. True to its name, one of California’s pools even includes a surf riding machine.

With so much room, it’s unsurprising that its interiors are filled with a number of exceptional features. Alongside carrying 24 guests and 50 crew, California includes a bowling alley, a 24-seat cinema and a classic car showroom for the owner’s collection. Koi ponds, waterfalls and colourful aquariums add a sense of "zen" to the interior passages of the yacht – but there’s also a nightclub on board.

Despite its size and luxury amenities, California boasts an environmentally-friendly design; it runs on power provided by a 60-tonne lithium-ion battery bank and all tenders and toys on board would also be electrically powered.
