The pursuit of adventure doesn’t have to come at the cost of style and comfort. That is the guiding principle behind Gil Schmid Design’s new yacht idea, a futuristic hybrid vessel able to go anywhere—but so well-appointed there’s room for a supercar on board.

The New York firm’s latest concept is a 262-foot (80 meters) explorer superyacht that has global range and is tough enough to meet Ice Class specifications. Designed in conjunction with Tim Dempers Studio, the ship attempts to combine a highly functional explorer with a super luxurious white boat.

As stylish as the vessel may be—it features a two-tone, industrial silver-and-pearlescent white paint scheme—it is more than up to the task of sailing through the harshest waters. The boat features a steel Ice Class hull, with an aluminum superstructure, most of which is coated by mirror-glazed finish so that it can blend into its surroundings. Superyacht Times reports that it will be powered by a diesel-electric propulsion system, allowing it to reach areas only accessible to the most eco-friendly of vessels as well.

Of course, the ship is as well-suited for rest and relaxation as it is for adventure. The interior features seven cabins, including a full-beam private owner’s suite with an outdoor deck, and can accommodate 14 guests, with a crew of up to 25. The suites are complemented by a number of adaptable entertainment and relaxation spaces, including a library, bar and cigar area. The highlight of these is the fully enclosed tender garage which can be converted into a three-level party space.

Outside, there is a helipad with room for a gym (including a basketball court), spa, beauty facilities and, according to the renderings, a parking space. Additionally, there are lounging areas front and aft, as well as an outdoor jacuzzi. The vessel also features a fully integrated A-frame crane that can be used to launch the many tender toys. The boat’s tender garage has room for a 39-ft limousine tender, two Triton submarines, four Jet Skis and more.

While the superyacht is a concept, it’s also one that’s expected to become a reality sooner than later. In a press release, Gil Schmid Design said the boat will be built by Dörries Yachts in Germany. Check out more images of the concept below:
