A yacht builder has turned back the clock with this stylish superyacht - built out of wood.<br />
<br />
The one-off custom build Aquarius looks similar to other mega-yachts on the market but instead of being built from steel and aluminium it is constructed from wood.<br />
<br />
The 147ft long, triple decker yacht's internal frames and beams are sapelli and mahogany, while the rest of the boat is made out of plywood. The outer shell has been laminated and painted.<br />
<br />
It has a retail price of 18million euros and was designed for a British owner who asked for the yacht to be built with wood as this would last longer than steel and be more flexible for manufacturing and repairs.
