Hareide Design recently developed a concept for a megayacht that goes by the name '108M,' which comes from the form of the classic 108 m mono hull design.

Unlike most yacht designs that feel heavy and closed off to their surroundings, this one is designed to offer a number of incredible views that encourage connections to the natural surroundings and beyond. Some of the design features of the yacht include dining and entertaining areas, as well as a garden, pool and helipad.

The 108M also features high-efficiency solar panels with lithium-ion batteries that supply the large-scale sea vessel with a sustainable source of energy for moving along at a slow cruising speed. As an alternative to this, cruising on the 108M can also happen at higher speeds with a switch to diesel-electric propulsion.
