A STUNNING modern superyacht with an "ancient" design has been revealed.
The 115m (377ft) boat is modelled off an early dugout canoe used to explore the Pacific Ocean.
Dubbed the Tuhura, it's certainly no old-timer with the giant yacht kitted out like a fantasy land inside.
It comes with a 360-degree cinema room, outdoor jacuzzi and bar on the sundeck and a relaxing hammock on the foredeck.
Plus there's a stylish dining area with a large round fireplace.
The vessel, created by Netherlands-based company, Oceanco, is full of unique design features from all over the world.
The many horizontal hull windows are made up of a series of dots that make them impossible to see into, but still allow the occupants to clearly see out.
And the interior takes inspiration from the Pacific Islands and East Asia, with teak wood and bronze finishes throughout.
According to the manufacturer, the yacht will have a top speed of 18 knots (approx 20mph).
The Tuhura is designed to combine the most impressive elements of luxury marine design with a shape reminiscent of the earliest boats.
It's been created as a collaboration between the Lobanov Design studio, BMT Nigel Gee and interior designer Achille Salvagni.
A representative from Oceanco said: "The exterior styling is reminiscent of early canoes; dugouts and other vessels used hundreds of years ago by indigenous people all over the world.
"The Polynesians, in particular, famously made long voyage explorations across thousands of miles of open Pacific Ocean in their outrigger canoes.
"The thinking behind revisiting basic primal forms is to evoke a sense of exploration and discovery.
"In fact, the actual name, ‘Tuhura’ is derived from the Maori verb meaning: to discover, bring to light, unearth, open up, explore, and investigate."
Achille Salvagni said: “Tuhura is a megayacht conceived for a dynamic owner, nevertheless the timeless sense of peace and calmness are the main characteristics.
“This softness and dynamicity are reflected in the humble elegance and sensuality of the primitive organic shapes echoed throughout.”
The exterior design is styled to blend with the interior, and is described as "inherently flexible" so that the yacht can be designed in any size from 80-115 metres in length.
