launched at the dubai international boat show, kleindienst group‘s ‘floating seahorse’ is a contemporary marine yacht that boasts underwater rooms with breathtaking views. intelligently designed, engineered and developed in dubai, the unique concept will be limited to just 42 units. the aquatic style retreat’s master bedroom and bathroom will be totally submerged in the clear sea, delivering pictures of the surrounding coral reef and ocean life.





CEO of kleindienst group, josef kleindienst comments, ‘since launching the floating seahorse we have been inundated with local, regional and international inquiries. we are excited to not just offer people a once in a lifetime investment opportunity in dubai but on a global scale. the floating seahorse is not restricted to dubai waters and can be designed and fabricated in dubai for other resorts and destinations worldwide.’

the unique project boasts three floors




moving up to the luxury boat’s sea level, the accommodation which includes a fully-fitted kitchen with a dining area and an open plan living area, has floor to ceiling windows, offering uninterrupted ocean scenes. furthermore, when the glass façade is open, the sun deck becomes an extension of the living space. on the upper deck, the floor is suitable for alfresco dining and relaxation, featuring an informal bed, mini bar, kitchenette and a glass-bottomed jacuzzi. the project is estimated to be completed by the end of 2016.

‘many months of research, design and planning have gone into the floating seahorse and we are excited to be able to officially launch and build it in dubai. we are confident that it will set a new benchmark in the luxury lifestyle market worldwide for outstanding innovation, contemporary design and underwater living at its best.’ adds josef.

josef explains ‘the seahorse is an endangered species and we will create an artificial coral reef beneath the luxury retreats which will be a protected area in which seahorses can safely live and breed.  very soon, people will be able to see up-close and personal, the beautiful and elegant arabian horse of the ocean – the seahorse!’

  • Very cool!
    I would rather see these on a pole like a pontoon because navigating these around shallow parts of a reef would be madness….

  • The Dutch have, of course, done this with their lovely homes that are situated upon submerged, square concrete basements that allow the home to float on top. Not quite as elegant as this computer rendering but the are built an in use and very attractive.

    Ron Smith says:
  • ‘yacht’ ? tis a lovely thing but boat or ship it is not 🙂

    mikka says:
  • Okay, I’ll bite: How much?

    David H Dennis says:
  • …probably outside your budget.
