With technology constantly improving, designers and manufacturers have been pushing the boundaries for their ideas and bringing them to real life.

The Indian yacht design studio Bhushan Powar Design has taken that to the next level, and recently announced their 110-meter super yacht "Zion" that is inspired by a black hole.

Zion stands out immediately with a giant glass eye in the middle of the yacht. The feature is actually a glass dome to give guests on the ship a one-of-a-kind 180 degree view.

"Taking inspiration from the most mysterious yet beautiful phenomenon of the universe- 'Black Hole', which attracts energy," Bhushan Powar Design said. "Our concept 'Zion' attracts eyes with its modern elegance and surprises the owner with the mysteries of the deep."

The yacht has 10 "luxury stake rooms" plus a master suite on the main deck to allow for up to 20 guests to stay comfortably. It also has space to accommodate an additional 20+ crew members.

Other specialty features on the yacht include "sky lounge balconies," a glass bottom infinity pool, and even a beach club with a gym and garden space.

"The flybridge located at the upper deck is designed for having highest visibility and maneuverability in all weather conditions," Bhushan Powar Design said. "Owners suite located at the main deck have electrically operated sky lounge balconies on either side. Main deck has open dining space connected to the glass bottom infinity swimming pool via hanging bridge.

"Lower deck has a large tender garage that allows for easy and safe deployment of tenders, jet skis and other water toys. At the aft of the lower deck is a beach club with a dedicated gym and an open garden space. The beach club converts into an expandable sun bathing space through foldout bulwark terraces."

You also can't forget about the the helipad on the top deck, which guests can access by a glass column elevator to all the decks.

The luxury ship is estimated to sell for between $500 and $600 million, according to CNN.

Although, the Zion yacht is just a concept for the time being, as the design studio said they hope to be able to create the ship some day in the future.
