Lead by 39-year-old Pierpaolo Lazzarini, the Lazzarini Design Studio is a small Italian firm that trades in producing ultra-idiosyncratic, outside-the-box renderings of cars and boats. And while Lazzarini previously focused on small conceptual projects, it’s more recently been dabbling in whipping up large-scale superyachts like the Adamantivm and the swan-inspired Avanguardia. The Rome-based company’s latest vehicular concept sees Lazzarini, bestow its signature, thoroughly modern, spare-no-expense treatment upon an 82’ catamaran christened the “Pagurus.”
Made from a combination of forged steel and carbon fiber, the Pagurus is 16.5’ tall and boasts a 30’ beam. The twin-propelled stern features a 3,540hp Caterpillar powertrain allowing for speeds of 24 knots. Connected by a steel brigade structure, the bottom of each side of the catamaran contains giant “screws” that enable the yacht to operate on land at speeds of up to 20mph. Powered by four separate 440hp Yanmar diesel engines, the rotation of the screws also harness energy to juice up the ship’s batteries while in the water, while additional power comes from the bevy of solar panels lining the vessel’s roof. What’s more, four electric winches allow a crane platform to lower part of the main deck, allowing for the deployment of vehicles, or to enjoy a meal literally on the water.
