A new £350million superyacht concept has been designed that takes luxury to new levels – you can surf on board.

The California will feature a machine that creates artificial waves in the vessel’s swimming pool, allowing passengers to grab their boards and ride the swell without having to get in the sea.

The 135-metre-long (442ft) boat will also boast its own waterfall as well as a bowling alley and a desalination system to turn seawater into drinking water.

It also includes a club style lounge area with bar, night club, games room, gym with a Turkish bath, massage studio and a wellness spa.

Plus, it will also have its own 24-seat cinema and a showroom for a classic car collection.

There’s a helipad, too, operated using an elevator system, so a helicopter can be stored underneath the top deck.

It is also designed with a hybrid electric propulsion system, which will be powered by high-efficiency diesel turbine generators.

It will be able to run on a reduced cruising speed of 11 knots for five hours on the battery power.

Power will come from a 60-tonne lithium-ion battery bank capable of holding two million watts of electricity.
