This shark yacht strays from conventional high-end ships by applying design techniques inspired by the ocean's most deadly predator. The shark is one of the most feared animals in the world and for good reason -- and with agility and strength, a shark makes for fantastic design inspiration.

'Hyperlien Yacht' released 'Shark Line 46,' which uses "subtle hints of biomimicry" that allude to the animal that shares the same name. The concept abstractly features a similar outline to the fin and body of the the mighty sea beast and applies it to various design elements of the shark. The designers saw the outline of the fierce shark and drew inspiration for the creation of a luxury water vehicle.

Conventional yacht designs do not compare to this shark yacht, which incorporates functional elements without sacrificing luxurious amenities like an ample deck space and a posh interior.
