A superyacht that can fly like a helium balloon has been revealed in new design concepts.
Design studio Lazzarini showed off its futuristic Air Yacht when predicting that the super-rich of the future will want flying boats.
The superyacht design has 10 bedrooms, a swimming pool and a helipad so you can fly aboard your already-flying ship.
The plane-cum-ship will run entirely on renewable gas including helium and hydrogen.
It is made up of two 492-foot ball-shaped vehicles attached across four bridges to the central hull
The hull measures 262 feet and is made entirely of carbon fiber.
Due to this design, the hull of the yacht is said to be stable enough to fly and land on any surface with perfect balance.
Inside the two spheres – known as “suspension balloons” – are many storage tanks used to store its energy source, which can provide enough energy to last a 48-hour flight.
In addition, the bottom of the structure includes an inflatable basement.
It houses inflatable lifeboats and helps the yacht when it hits the water.
Inside the boat’s main area, you’ll find a spacious living room, with an open plan dining area, as well as 10 luxury suites.
On top of the unique yacht’s midsection is a decent sized swimming pool.
There’s also the aforementioned helipad with accompanying helicopters – something you won’t find on many conventional yachts.
Lazzarini is designing yachts with a specific client profile.
They thought a single owner passionate about aviation would be perfect.
That person may have to be a billionaire and needs to be patient as the superyacht hasn’t been built yet.
When it was created, it was expected to travel at 60 knots in the air and 5 knots on the water.
