Gresham Yacht Design has created a concept 100-meter, about 328-foot, yacht with an indoor aquarium, and a glass floor that can change opacities for more privacy.
The Britain-based design studio specializes 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.

Thor Explore — which has a range of 1,000 natural miles — has "organic shapes" throughout the interior and exterior, according to Gresham Yacht Design.
The grand saloon has a glass floor with exposed beams, creating a lighter interior.
This glass floor can then turn opaque for more privacy and a greater separation between the upper and lower levels of the saloon.
The upper main saloon holds the futuristic-looking control center and seating areas.
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.
Across the glass floor is the lower level, which has a lounge bed, bar, and several seating and leisure areas.
The yacht also has a beach club …
... which can be accessed by walking through a circular room with an aquarium at its center.
The beach club, which extends across the 59-foot beam, has fold-down balconies …
… and a tender storage area behind glass doors.
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 41-foot long tender.
The Thor Explore also has storage space for non-water toys, specifically a helicopter hangar and deck.
Like any luxury yacht, there's also a pool onboard.
The ship can accommodate up to 36 passengers with guest bedrooms in the lower deck.
The main bedroom is on the upper deck and includes two bathrooms, an office, and a walk-in closet.
According to a report by CNN, the Thor Explore could be built within three to four years by a shipyard.
