New Zealand's richest man's new superyacht has been revealed after weeks of speculation.  

Graeme Hart's 103m yacht was spotted in Amsterdam, featuring enough space for 20 crew and 18 guests.  

His daughter, Gretchen Hawkesby, shared a collection of photos including herself, Hart and other family members on Instagram, while on a trip to Amsterdam for the boat launch.  

The freshly renovated, pristine white superyacht has been the subject of much speculation over the past month.  

Boat International revealed the yacht includes four exterior hot tubs, a swimming pool that covers the entire height of the main deck and a helicopter hangar concealed in the foredeck.   

On the interior, the yacht has a glass staircase and an elevator in the main atrium.  

"The yacht has maintained a single-deck engine room, which is no easy feat for a yacht of this size," Boat International reported.  

Formerly known as Feadship 1011, the yacht has now been named Ulysses.  

Boat International said the yacht was spotted recently in transport from Feadship's Makkum site to its Amsterdam facility.   

They described the yacht as having "distinctive clean lines" and a "squared-off deck design".  

Feadship revealed the yacht includes 1100sqm of exterior glass used in twenty exterior sliding doors, 12 glass windbreaks and 6m panels of glass along the main deck guest cabins.  

Ulysses is the same name as one of Hart's previous superyachts which he sold in 2017.  

The project is the fourth largest Feadship to be built to date, following the 118.2m Feadship 821 and Feadship 1010, both currently in build at the shipyard, and the 110m Anna. The superyacht is set to embark on sea trials later this year.
