Lazzarini Design Studio’s Air Yacht Concept Is a Flying Catamaran

The world of yacht designing is a fascinating and awe-inspiring place. Due to the near-unlimited resources of their clients, designers throughout the space are empowered to use all of their creative acumens to design envelope-pushing sea vessels that defy the imagination. It isn’t out of the ordinary to find a unique yacht, but very rarely do yachts do unfathomable things like fly. However, the folks at Lazzarini Design Studio did exactly that when they designed a flying catamaran concept with an apt name: the Air Yacht.

The 150m concept is part superyacht, part blimp, and all awesome. Powered by helium, the air yacht can glide through the air the same way it glides through the sea thanks to a hybridized design that fuses the designs of a catamaran and a blimp to make a cohesive, jaw-dropping vessel. Given its fuel type and the fact that it is a floating, flying machine, the Air Yacht features a lightweight, carbon fiber construction for its airships, which also feature “hives” that store the Air Yacht’s supply of helium.

While the Air Yacht itself seems like it exists merely as an exercise in creative design, Lazzarini has every intention of creating and selling this airship to private owners who wish to take part in the evolution of the superyacht. Aesthetically speaking, the Air Yacht looks like it comes from the swankiest family in The Jetsons. It is a gorgeous, striking vessel with smooth curvature, a central deck, 360-degree views, and solar panels that come installed on top of the twin airships. For added opulence, it even features a helipad for when the Air Yacht is sailing at sea.

Performance-wise, Lazzarini plans on the Air Yacht flying at speeds around 60 knots (69mph) for about 48 hours, which is perfect for a leisurely flight. On the water, billionaires can expect this gorgeous vessel to clock in around five knots (six mph). For potential pricing and build information, contact Lazzarini on its website.
