What if your home doubled as a vehicle to all the amazing destinations in the world while still maintaining top-luxury amenities for all your comforts?
Apparently, this question was top of the list for designers of Somnio, the world’s first ‘yacht liner.’ The epic vessel not only spans a staggering 728 feet, it offers 39 luxury apartments ready for well-heeled seafarers to live out their own lavish aquatic life.
Designed by Winch Design in partnership with Tillberg Design, the residential gigayacht wants to offer you a combination of the best parts of superyacht living and the services and amenities of the finest five-star hotels.
Spread across six decks, the 33,500 GT vessel will become the largest superyacht in the world by both length and volume when she hits the seas in mid-2024, according to a statement released earlier.
The build, which is expected to cost in the ballpark of $600 million, will be carried out by Norwegian yard Vard under the watchful eye of Somnio co-founder Captain Erik Bredhe. Bredhe previously helmed The World, the only other residential vessel at sea.
Announcing its launch, Captain Erik Bredhe said: “Somnio will be the only residential superyacht in the world and has been designed to exacting standards that are commensurate with a life of opportunity. Owners will share a truly unique lifestyle at sea, with a hand-picked crew and a never-ending global itinerary of carefully selected destinations and experiences befitting a yacht of this nature.”
The exclusive condos, which start from $11.2 million, will be available by invitation or referral only, and the identity of each new owner will remain a “tightly guarded secret.” In addition to that privacy, those on board will live in the lap of luxury.
Each apartment is fully customizable 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.
On top of that, Somnio comes with spectacular shared amenities. Owners will have access to a remarkable 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.
Residents abroad Somnio will be able to explore the four corners of the globe from the Mediterranean to Antarctica with unlimited access to unimaginable experiences whilst enjoying the true intimacy of private yacht ownership with added ability to share a unique life with like-minded owners and friends with whom to explore the world.
Somnio will also be equipped with advanced research instruments that scientists and marine experts will use to explore the various ocean environments, and update owners on pressing environmental and philanthropic issues.
