Inside £480m superyacht inspired by black hole with infinity pool and beach club

A humongous superyacht worth £480million is in the works, boasting an infinity pool, helipad and its own beach club.

Dubbed the "Zion", the beastly boat spans over 360ft (110m) long and 52ft (15.8m) wide.

Creators Bhusan Power Design, a studio in India, say that the superyacht was inspired by a black hole – "the most mysterious yet beautiful phenomenon of the universe".

A looming glass viewing dome in the centre of the hull is said to reflect the black hole aesthetic, offering those lucky enough to be onboard a "180-degree views" of the ocean around them.

Glass is a key feature of the Zion, with a glass-bottomed infinity pool on the main deck which connects to a lavish dining area via a "hanging bridge".

Bhusan Power Design say that there are several other "innovative features integrating beauty with functionality" which serve to attract "eyes with its modern elegance and surprise the owner with the mysteries of the deep".

The owner's suite is flanked by "electrically operated sky lounge balconies" on each side.

Above that is the upper deck where the 12m helipad is located, "accessible by [a] glass column elevator to all the decks".

There is also a flybridge for steering at the top of the superyacht, which Bhusan Power Design say is designed for "for having highest visibility and manoeuvrability in all weather conditions".

The lower deck has a "large tender garage" for jet skis and other "water toys".

This is also where the inbuilt beach club can be found, which can convert into an "expandable sun bathing space" through foldout bulwark terraces.

A gym and an "open garden space" are also located at the bottom.

The Zion can accommodate a total of 20 guests – with one master suite and 10 "luxury" rooms – as well as more than 20 crew members.

Bhusan Power Design brags that the superyacht can sail at a speed of 18 knots (20.7mph) using a hybrid-electric propulsion system.

Unfortunately for any multi-millionaires who fancy buying it, the designers also say that it is just a concept at the moment and would take four or five years to fully construct.
