The future is sometimes unpredictable… What if the yacht of tomorrow was in the air? A businessman living in Germany and Italian designer Pierpaolo Lazzarini want to combine the DNA of an airship and a luxury boat to make the most unique private transportation of all time. Equipped with solar panels and eight counter-rotating electric motors powered by ultra-light batteries, this nearly 500-foot-long yacht can cross sky and sea for more than two days at a time, without the slightest CO2 emission. In addition to being environmentally friendly, this Air Yacht will be built entirely of carbon fiber and have a 360-degree panoramic view. It will take our breath away. The project is, for the moment, only a concept whose objective is to develop sustainable air transport. But the Air Yacht is well and truly under study. The first scale prototype will be available by the end of 2022.
