This $500m superyacht concept boasts an infinity pool 12ft above the water

Think you’ve seen it all in the world of superyachts?

Well, feast your eyes on this 150-meter superyacht concept because it’s quite literally on another level.

The most recent vision of Italian designer, Gabriele Teruzzi, the private 105-ft sky-high cabin, is complete with a secluded 344-square-foot patio and infinity pool set 125ft above the rest of the boat.

With the pool blurring lines between the water below and sky above and unique waterfall feature providing a peaceful audio backdrop, passengers will feel like they’ve reached ‘heaven’.

From that unique vantage point, guests can dine, swim and and catch the sunset in complete privacy.

Teruzzi says the idea came from the yacht’s name: ‘Shaddai’.

The Hebrew word meaning ‘omnipotent’ or ‘all powerful’, he says he “wanted to take the owner to a point of extreme sense of power”.

So what would a yacht like this cost? Teruzzi’s got that covered too.

The designer has priced the superyacht concept at an eye-watering $500 million.

Teruzzi’s website explains the ‘out of the box’ design was inspired by mankind’s desire to “ascend from the ground…since the very beginnings”.

“There are precious examples like the Tower of Babel, the Pyramids in Egypt and today in the magnificent skyscrapers, the wish to touch the clouds continue to be present in the most powerful minds,” he says.

Back at sea level, the 1,000 square-feet main aft deck of this superyacht concept features more luxury cabins, space for al fresco dining and another glass-bottomed infinity pool which forms the ceiling of the ‘airy’ feel Beach club below.

At 300-square-meters, the luxury, exclusive Beach club on the lower deck is furnished with 100 percent Italian materials and textures.

A tongue-in-cheek floating aquarium in the center of the Beach club blurs the lines between the ocean and being on-board.

This gives the space a dream-like, other-worldly feel.
