This 5-Story Carbon Fiber Superyacht Has Its Own Midship Tender Port

Lazzarini is no stranger to going big with its stunning superyacht concepts — neither in look nor in length. From the 450-foot, swan-shaped Avanguardia to the 501-foot, Roman architecture-inspired Prodigivm, the Italian design studio consistently pens some of the most extravagant seafaring vessels we’ve ever seen. And their latest project is no exception.

Christened the ‘Saturnia,’ it’s a 328-footer that’s been imagined with a number of state-of-the-art innovations. For instance, the angular hull and body would be made using 100% dry carbon fiber, allowing the sprawling five-floored ship to be 50% lighter than comparably-sized vessels. What’s more, Lazzar has envisioned it with a hybrid propulsion system comprised of two diesel engines and a central electronic water jet. In addition to powering the Saturnia to a top cruising speed of 30 knots, it would also (in theory) allow for zero-emission sailing. But the best part of the concept has to be the private port found midship. Accessed through a pair of large, automatic gates at the sides, it provides enough room for tenders with up to five feet of draft. Finished off with features like a rooftop pool and an eVTOL pad, it’s no wonder that Lazzarini expects construction to cost $300 million.
