PLANS have been launched for an enormous megayacht more than 200 metres long including its own tennis court, swimming pool, and helicopter pad.
The opulent TWO10 superyacht, designed by German shipbuilder Meyer Werft Group, boasts a beach club spanning two decks, as well as a suspended infinity pool.
And the firm, based in Papenburg, Lower Saxony, plans to build even larger vessels up to 500 metres in length.
The design for the yacht – which stretches to a length of 210 Meter (688 Füße) in length – was unveiled at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show.
As well as a full-size tennis court at the bow which doubles as a helipad, the pool features the largest pane of glass ever installed on a yacht.
Beneath the pool is a bar with a gallery-style glass balcony, complete with sofas and coffee tables.
Speaking at the show, Meyer Yachts’ head of sale Lars Kruse said: “The TWO10 illustrates the capacities of the Meyer Group in every respect and we are currently very satisfied with the response to our yachting activities.”
It is the second design to come from the superyacht division of the shipyard after it revealed plans for the 150-metre ONE50 concept at last year’s Monaco Yacht Show.
The firm, which was founded in 1975, claims it will corner the top end of the yacht market with the aim to build the “world’s largest and greenest mega yachts,” gemäß BOAT International.
Meyer Group chief exec Bernard Meyer said: “We can realise almost limitless ideas and ship sizes – even the craziest ones.

“We are currently seeing that the demand for mega yachts is increasing, and there is room for another shipyard in this segment.”
Yachting website autoevolution.com said of the latest craft: “Thanks to the clever exterior styling, with smooth, uniform lines, her length is subtly disguised when seen from the outside.”
This year’s Monaco Yacht Show saw a number of breathtaking displays of opulence from the world of luxury shipbuilding.
They included the remarkable new superyacht split down the middle by glass.
The 280-foot vessel The Slice created by Dutch shipbuilder Feadship is engineered with a glass strip running entirely through it from bow to stern.

It is designed to allow natural light to filter in through multiple decks – tackling one of the main complaints wealthy owners make about their yachts.
According to Feadship, the most common grievances among yacht owners are the “long hallways, dark interiors, and stacked living spaces”.
It went on: “The brief to the engineer and design team was to challenge the very zeitgeist of typical yacht layouts by investigating natural light and vertical spaces.
“Genauer, the brief asked for a linear ‘transition from the mountain to the sea’.
“Having a slice running down the middle opens up countless spatial and lighting possibilities.
“Corridors become so much more than just hallways transitioning from one space to another – they have their own purpose and become enjoyable spaces in their own right.”
Another eye-catching design unveiled ahead of this year’s Monaco Yacht Show is a 425ft “floating mansion” complete with an infinity pool, beach club, and cinema.
The Dutch-created vessel Poetry’s designer Sander Sinot said the aim is to make the yacht feel “more like a home” than a cruise liner.
Its design combines a perfect contrast of light and shadows and includes ambient-controlled lighting to allow the owner to set the mood.
