A stunning new superyacht has been compared to an ocean-going New York penthouse.

The Phathom 60m features luxury loft-style open plan living and a three-story glass atrium.

It also boasts a two-level owner's apartment, sun terraces and ‘beach club’ with a swimming pool.

A tender boat can be stored in the pool thanks to a clever crane fixture.

Dutch design firm Phathom Studio says a client commissioned them to create the compact version of one of their largest yacht designs.

They explain: “This concept began with an interested client who requested to see the Phathom 80m scaled down to a length of 60m.

"Like her larger predecessor, the 60m benefits from an unconventional layout sharing some similar features while offering a new level of onboard enjoyment.

"This is most notable in the transforming pool deck having an industry-first beach club adjoining pool that encourages interaction between swimmers and guests seeking shade.

“Though the beach club is equipped to house a tender, an additional 7+ meter tender fits snugly within the swimming pool while underway and not in use."

The Phathom 6o has an indoor-outdoor 3-level atrium originating from the aft main deck and extending upwards to the sundeck where it is capped-off by a glass floor.

"This feature not only serves to offer cross-sectional views of the yacht but also floods the interior with natural light," describe the design firm.

“Quite apparent in this concept is the abundant and daring application of glass in the superstructure. A three-level central lobby features a floating staircase that winds outboard as it ascends against a multi-level window.

“The sun deck features a structural glass floor doubling as the skylight for the indoor-outdoor atrium.

“Finally, the sundeck conservatory is enveloped in UV protectant glass and features an informal outdoor galley and a panoramic gym/spa with impressive four-deck high vistas.

“Automotive and dynamic, the 60m’s exterior styling stands apart with its interweaving of glass and superstructure elements with the intention to impress without overbearing on its surroundings.”

The Phathom 60m is still in the concept stage of design. The price has not been disclosed.
