A new concept superyacht has taken the idea of luxury to new levels by including a detachable beach house as part of the design.

The concept vessel, which is called Choice, has been designed by Dutch firm Feadship – who built Steve Jobs’ superyacht – and offers what the company is calling a “wealth of opportunities for autonomous living on and off board”.

That includes using sensor technology, weather forecasting and wave radar to create a nearly autonomous sailing experience. Using Feadship Independent Control System (FICS), Choice is able to process the gathered data and offer suggests on the best course.

Ruud Bakker, senior designer at Feadship, said: “We haven’t quite reached the autopilot stage yet, but the way this solution communicates with the environment is optimised to the highest degree.”

As well as being a smart ship, Choice also comes with a small detachable beach house – including its own double bedroom and separate bathroom for two people.

This is in addition to two tenders to attach to the ship and supply extra engine power and propulsion at sea.

In addition to the breakaway beach house, Choice also has a two-person drone should those on board wish to take to the skies at any point on their trip.

There are also sensors built into the pool to help stabilise it on rough seas and ensure it can be used more often.

The ship is powered by electric engines that can be charged when at dock. Though unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show, there is no word on if and when the ship could go into production.
