Trending Yacht Concept: Hydrosphere by Gresham Yacht Design
Imagine how incredible it would be to enter a specially-designed glass capsule on your yacht, then descend down through the hull to take in breathtaking 360-degree views of the ocean environment beneath the surface. That’s the concept for the Hydrosphere from UK-based Gresham Yacht Design. With a capacity to seat up to seven guests at one time, the Hydrosphere can be used day or night, thanks to onboard lighting that can illuminate the water. Of course, safety is paramount, which is why the shell of the Hydrosphere extends through the hull so that guests may enter and exit the unit safely via a curved staircase. When not in use, the Hydrosphere retracts into the hull and is protected by an external hatch.
The Hydrosphere is designed to enable guests to get below the waterline quickly so they won’t miss any of the mesmerizing underwater scenes that lie below. “The only other way to get this type of experience is to dive in a submersible,” says Steve Gresham, principal designer and founder of Gresham Yacht Design. “This takes time though—to get a sub ready to launch and into the water takes at least an hour, if not more. Our Hydrosphere takes mere minutes to deploy, meaning that you don’t miss that fleeting moment when a beautiful sea creature swims past.”
With the Hydrosphere onboard your yacht, you and your guests will be able immerse yourselves in the underwater world any time you like without ever getting wet.
