Yes, it looks like a pipe dream. But they swear it's feasible.

The greatest luxury in life may very well be time — but this new superyacht of the same name is running a close second.

Officially debuting at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show, the 216-foot Time explorer yacht concept is a seven-deck monstrosity capable of covering 5,000 nautical miles at a speed of 12 knots thanks to its 3,000-kW twin azimuthing drive system.

Designed by Henry Ward Design with assistance from BMT Nigel Gee, the Time has features like a 60-foot floating lodge that can detach to travel independently, a wellness level with a gym, massage room and sauna, and a hangar that can house an autonomous drone with enough room to transport supplies for up to four guests.

With an owner’s suite and three cabins, the Time also features amenities like a climbing wall, hot tubs, sky deck, splash pool, deck-top bar and a tender garage with plenty of room. Even though the project looks too good to be true, Time’s designers have assessed the technical aspects of the superyacht and believe that building it will be entirely possible.

“The only thing that cannot be changed are the laws of physics,” BMT Nigel Gee yacht design director James Roy told Superyacht News. “However, barriers such as regulatory compliance, established engineering practices and industry-specific limitations can be worked around.”

Time will tell if he’s right.
