While some are dreaming of travelling to Mars, others are experiencing reveries of oceans far away. Bringing us another exciting news this week is superyacht Somnio, the world’s biggest yacht that is to set sail in 2024.
Surpassing the length of the world’s current biggest yacht Azzam, which is just under 600 feet long, Superyacht Somnio is a 728 foot-long dream come true for true seafarers. Spread across six decks, the 33,500 GT vessel will become the largest superyacht in the world by both length and volume when she no longer held fast by its anchor in 2024.
Announced on Monday, the superyacht was penned by Winch Design in partnership with Tillberg Design and aims to pair the best parts of superyacht living with the services and amenities of the finest five-star hotels. It has an estimated build cost of $600 million featuring luxury apartments, each with its own gym, which will start at $11.2 million, and you can only offer to buy if you’re invited. Each apartment is fully customisable and can be outfitted with multiple cabins, plus a well-appointed kitchen, gym, library, and walk-in wardrobe. They will also offer indoor/outdoor dining spaces for entertaining.
Owners will have access to a spectacular 10,000-bottle wine cellar and tasting room, along with a spate of restaurants and bars. A highlight is the lounge in the ship’s bow, which will reportedly offer “spectacular views” while under sail. Elsewhere, there’s a sprawling beach club complete with water-sports facilities as well as myriad pools on the main deck.
Naturally, there is a full concierge service to cater to your needs on land and at sea. There is also world-class medical care available onboard to keep the crew and residents safe and healthy.
As for exploration, Somnio is equipped to travel to all four corners of the globe, from short stints in the Mediterranean to expeditions in Antarctica.
Somnio will also be equipped with advanced research equipment that scientists and marine experts will use to explore the various ocean environments. The scientists will also regularly update owners on pressing environmental and philanthropic issues.
