Have a look at the pictures on this site

Never regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many. Don't worry about old age - it doesn't last.

The designers are simply 'stupid'.

Lightweight, not much draught, not much beam. That nice infinity pool on the tower... how much water will it hold. Say it is roughly, 5 x 3 x 3 metres. That would mean 45 tonnes of FW sitting on the top. Anyone ever done any stability for a medium size cargo ship? Put 45 tonnes at the top of your derrick (or crane) and your ship would heel considerable... certainly not enough to keep that thing upright. And this would be over 100 t above the waterline. Slightest movement and you would be washed right over the glass panel at the back. I hope you don't get seasick and worse... the gin will get spilt!

The tower is canted back. How do even get up there? Hydraulics 'lift'?

Save your money and put it into a beautiful yacht and for get the nonsense.
