A stunning new superyacht has been compared to an ocean-going New York penthouse.
The impressive vessel, named The Phathom 60m, was designed by the Dutch design firm Phathom Studio, and features luxury loft-style open plan living and a three-storey glass atrium.
It also boasts a two-level owner’s apartment, sun terraces and its very own ‘beach club’ with a swimming pool.
A tender boat can be stored in the pool thanks to a clever crane fixture.
The Dutch design firm said a client commissioned them to create a compact version of one of their largest yacht designs.

The stunning superyacht also boasts a two-level owner’s apartment which looks over the open plan living space, surrounded by sun terraces overlooking the sea
‘This concept began with an interested client who requested to see the Phathom 80m scaled down to a length of 60m,’ they said.
‘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,’ they went on.
The firm explained that the yacht’s beach club is equipped to house a tender, and that the swimming pool can turn into an additional tender of more than 7 meters when it’s underway and not in use.
The impressive open plan living space is surrounded by comfortable sofas and art deco lights. It also comes with a built-in bar in granite as well as contemporary art with a nod to the Dutch design (right) in the form of an abstract version of Vermeer’s Girl With The Pearl Earring
The yacht, which is a compact version of its 80-metre long sisiter, hosts sunken sun terraces so that guests can enjoy the sun but shelter from the wind
The top deck of the yacht, which boast a stylish terrace and patio area, perfect for entertaining, looks over the stunning three-storey glass atrium
It’s not the only ‘trail-blazing’ feature on the ship the firm is proud about.
‘Another trail-blazing feature is 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.
One of the lobby’s central features is a floating staircase that winds outboard as it ascends against a multi-level window and offer an incomparable view of the sea and the coastline
The yacht has several lounges and includes a penthouse-style study area for the owner, looking over a large window, and beneficiating from a generous-sized library and seating area for reading and relaxing
The glass atrium, which boasts round corner and spans the yacht’s three stories, bathes all three levels of the vessel in light and makes it seem even bigger
The beautiful ship’s atrium is at the back, overlooking the beach club, left. At the front, guests can enjoy a patio area. There are several terraces located on all level of the yacht
‘Quite apparent in this concept is the abundant and daring application of glass in the superstructure,’ the designers said. ‘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 4-deck high vistas.
‘In keeping with the ethos of the 80m, the 60 boasts an open-concept two-level owner’s apartment with upper-level sleeping area, lower-level lounge and study, all with breath-taking forward-facing views of the private foredeck with protected pool.
‘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.’
