A £7.8m glass castle on the water! New superyacht features giant windows

If you’re looking for a vessel with the ultimate sea views, then this cutting-edge superyacht might float your boat. 

The slick A105, which is from Italian shipyard Arcadia and has a base price of £7.8 million, boasts sliding floor-to-ceiling windows and mirrored panels, which give it a bright and breezy feel. 

Its designers say that this feature reduces the need for air-conditioning and the yacht is decked out with solar panels, further boosting its eco-friendly credentials.

Gianluca Poerio, who specialises in yacht marketing, told MailOnline Travel that the solar panels help make the vessel much quieter and they were integrated in a way that is ‘pleasing on the eye’. 

The solar panels provide enough energy to power a number of electrical appliances, including fridges, water pumps, toilets and lights while the main batteries recharge.

Newly-released images of the superyacht reveal how there’s a main lounge area with impressive panoramic views thanks to those huge glass panels.
