Yacht designer Harrison Eidsgaard has released the first renders of its latest concept, the 127-metre superyacht REX. The yacht was originally designed for a client who asked for ‘something different’ and REX certainly ticks the boxes. The expedition motor yacht has some standout features for an adventurous owner, including an Airbus A160 helicopter hangar which converts into a squash court. Other top features include a 14-metre swimming pool on the main deck which can be enclosed in glass to create an indoor pool for colder climates. This also directly connects the pool to the main saloon.
