A MIND-BLOWING superyacht that can fly like a helium balloon has been revealed in new design concepts.
Lazzarini design studio has been showing off its futuristic Air Yacht as it predicts the super-rich of the future will want flying boats.
The superyacht design has 10 bedrooms, a swimming pool, and a helipad in case you need to fly to your already flying ship.
The ship-cum-plane will run completely off renewable gases including helium and hydrogen.
It’s made up of two 492 feet blimp-shaped vehicles attached via four bridges to a central hull.
That hull measures 262 feet and is constructed fully out of carbon fiber.
Due to this design, the body of the yacht is said to be stable enough to fly and land on any surface with perfect balance.
Inside the two blimps – known as “floating balloons” – are multiple tanks used to store their energy source, which can provide enough energy to last a 48-hour flight.
As well as this, the lower side of the structure comprises an inflatable basement.
This contains inflatable lifeboats and helps the yacht whilst it touches down on the water.
Inside the main area of the boat, you’ll find a spacious living room, with an open plan dining area, as well as 10 luxurious suites.
On top of the unique yacht’s middle section is a decent-sized swimming pool.
There’s also the aforementioned helipad with accompanying helicopter – something you won’t find on many regular yachts.
Lazzarini is designing the yacht with a specific customer profile in mind.
They think a single owner who is passionate about the aviation industry would be perfect.
That person would likely have to be a billionaire and would need to be patient as the superyacht hasn’t been built yet.
When it is created, it’s expected to travel at 60 knots in air and five knots in the water.
