Austrian-based design company MOTION CODE: BLUE has developed the world's largest superyacht concept Imara based on an oil tanker

Austrian-based yacht design company MOTION CODE: BLUE has developed the world’s largest yacht concept based on a 280m SuezMax tanker platform.

Named Imara, the concept is looking to appeal to Middle East clients who want to salute their national heritage in the oil industry by using a modified and upcycled oil tanker as a private floating residence.



The yacht’s 11 deck design is dominated by the hull, painted in bright white with golden accents.

With a raised foredeck, there’s enough room to host three large heli pads as well as two in a lower hangar, guaranteeing the owner and guests a speedy arrival and departure.

Another main feature is the large atrium located amidships. It stretches over four decks and is surrounded by several lounges, restaurants, bars and shops.

While on the main deck, a huge pool with integrated bar, palm tress and a four deck high waterfall can be found around the atrium.

With Imara being such a vast space, getting around could take those on board a while, so designers have added the luxury of custom painted BMW i3 electric cars as transport between the decks.



And the exclusivity doesn’t stop there, with a four-deck high ski slope and lift, formal dining area for 100 people, a semi-outdoor art gallery, indoor tennis courts, cinema and concert hall to enjoy.

There are a total of eight two-storey VIP suits located in the hull, each with a private terrace, floor-to-ceiling windows, private saloon and beach club.

An additional 12 guest cabins are also available, with the owner’s quarters offering an array of facilities such as a library, gym and office.
