It can be difficult for discerning billionaires to decide where to splash their wealth. With a garage full of hypercars and a helicopter in the hangar, the next logical step is to get into the superyacht game. Should it see the light of day, this Hareide Design Concept could be the yacht to fill that multi-million dollar floating hole in your life.

In additon to two pools, which is pretty much standard with any superyacht, at the stern the deck of the 354-ft (108-m) concept flows dramatically down into the water, forming a shallow wading pool that lets passengers dip their toes into the ocean water while still on the deck.

Meanwhile, a tranquil garden has been built around the 66-ft (20-m) pool flowing through the middle of the main deck, while a pool on the bow lets you make your own, wetter version of Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio's famous Titanic scene on the move.

Moving towards the bow on the lower deck reveals a glass-sided entertainment area, and there's a dining hall with 360-degree views on the upper decks. The net result is a floating space perfect for entertaining guests, who can be treated to a nice meal with sweeping ocean views, or enjoy a drink on the rear deck.

Putting the over-the-top design to one side for a moment, Hareide Design has an environmentally friendly power source in mind for its concept. According to the boat's designers, there's 300 sq m (3,229 sq ft) of high-efficiency solar panels fitted to the roof, providing power to banks of lithium-ion batteries hidden below deck.

The batteries are designed to hold enough energy for slow shoreline cruising, although you'll have to kick into hybrid diesel/electric mode to make progress away from the shoreline.

At the moment, this is just a concept, but the only thing stopping it from becoming a reality is someone with the money and the inclination to make it so.

Would it come with a lawnmower to keep the lawn in shape?

The growth in billionaires is the result of governments that favor parasitic creditors over the real economy of workers and industry. Mega yachts will not make up for the millions of manufacturing workers in the USA and Europe and Latin America that have had their factories and jobs cannibalized by these parasites who provide no economic or other value while taking more than 40% of the value of workers in the form of rent/debt payments that go on and on and on. We have the juxtaposition of mega yachts and tiny homes on trailers - some future.

I was going to get one of these...until I found out I couldn't get it in black...had to back outta the deal.

Seriously doubt the Buoyancy of this contraption when out of balance or tilt specially in scenarios of rough seas and top heavy conditions like Parties.

Buoyancy in rough seas is a valid point but also salt water is extremely corrosive and the design leaves the ship exposed to a lot of it. It looks like most the crew would have to sleep below the hull but that's fine because the person that owns this might not view them as people anyway.

This is probably the most unseaworthy design that I have seen. Even worse than the infamous Yogi yacht.
