Inside the new luxury FLYING yacht designed for the air rather than the sea


A HIGH-FLYING new luxury yacht designed to FLY rather than sail has been revealed.

The Air-Yacht features all the trappings of a prestige boat, but takes to the sky thanks to two huge blimps.

The two blimps are connected through four carbon bridges on each side to the main central structure.

The length overall of the dry carbon fibre structure is 150 metres, with a width of 80 metres, while the main central deck measures 80 metres in length and 10 metres wide.

A so-called ‘inflatable basement’ allows the vehicle to float on the surface of water when required.

Passengers can enjoy a central area incorporating a spacious living room with dining area.

There are also five suites for passengers available on each blimp side, with sky window view and a special ‘shipowner suite’ placed in the centre with a 360° view.

An optional extra allows a helicopter to rest on the structure for flying visits to local destinations.

The Air-Yacht’s twin blimps contain 400,000m3 of compressed helium propelled by eight counter-rotating electric engines.

Powered from ultra-light batteries and solar panels, the craft could fly at a maximum speed of 60 knots for more than 48 hours consequently.

Lazzarini Design Studio explained: “The Air-Yacht is not an airship for public transportation or touristic purposes, it is conceived for a private owner with a vision of mega yacht/aviation evolution.”

When a water landing is required, Lazzarini say: “The Air-Yacht is pushed down from the rotation of the engines and can stand in the water through a depressurisation of helium and ballast anchor system.

“It can sail quietly in the water with a speed of five knots.”

It isn’t the only crazy yacht design – they also created a concept superyacht with a 200ft ‘gaping hole’ inside it.

And their ‘hyperyacht’ concept is a tribute to Ferrari, coming in the famous Rosso Corsa red.
