Luxury Yacht with Underwater Rooms Boasts Amazing Views of Ocean Life

The Dubai-based Kleindienst Group has designed a contemporary marine yacht concept that's unlike any other. Called the Floating Seahorse, it boasts an underwater master bedroom and bath that offer amazing views of the surrounding ocean.

This aquatic accommodation is a luxurious home away from home, and it includes a fully-fitted kitchen with a dining and living area. There's also a sun deck that doubles as an extended entertaining space once the glass facade is open. The upper deck of the boat features an additional sleeping area, mini bar, kitchenette, and glass-bottomed jacuzzi. But perhaps the most striking thing about the Floating Seahorse is its floor-to-ceiling windows above and below the water. When you're downstairs, there's an up-close, uninterrupted look at aquatic life.

Aside from providing an unforgettable boating experience, the Kleindienst Group wants to help make a better life for seahorses. CEO Josef Kleindienst explains, “The seahorse is an endangered species and we will create an artificial coral reef beneath the luxury retreats which will be a protected area in which seahorses can safely live and breed.”

The yacht recently made its debut at the Dubai International Boat Show, and its expected completion is at the end of 2016. Floating Seahorse will be a limited production of just 42 units.
