Gresham Yacht Design has created a concept 100-metre yacht with an indoor aquarium, and a glass floor that can change opacities for more privacy.

The Britain-based design studio specialises in yacht designs of all boat types, whether it be an explorer ship with labs onboard, or luxury yachts with a floor-to-ceiling aquarium, such as the Thor Explore.

According to Gresham Yacht Design, the Thor Explore was designed from the inside out, starting with the spaceship-like interior and its large windows. Beyond its "norm-breaking" design, the inside of the ship also showcases features that aren't typically found on a luxury yacht, such as glass floors that can turn opaque with the touch of a button, two separate hangars, and the aforementioned aquarium.

This glass floor can then turn opaque for more privacy and a greater separation between the upper and lower levels of the saloon.

Despite the eye-grabbing windows and bright interior, according to Gresham Yacht Design, the "focal point" of the room is the skylight, which is above the seating area.

According to Gresham Yacht Design, the tender hangar is a one-of-a-kind storage space that can fit water toys like a submarine, jet skis, and the ship's custom 12.5-metre long tender.
