The $300million carbon fiber superyacht concept with its own dockyard

(CNN) — Devising a superyacht concept that stands out from the rest is no easy feat nowadays, as designers continue to push against the boundaries with more innovative vessel designs.

According to the design team, the 100-meter vessel is designed to be made entirely of dry carbon fiber, making it 50% lighter than other similar-sized yachts made from aluminum, iron, or steel. It will also have its own private dockyard on board, allowing tenders measuring up to 1.5 meters to moor inside.

The designers envision the yacht is powered by hybrid propulsion consisting of twin diesel engines and a central electronic water jet system, producing fewer emissions and resulting in an estimated top speed of 30 knots. With room for up to 20 guests, along with 20 crew members, Saturnia, fitted with high ceilings and huge sliding windows, is to be split across five different floors and features a rooftop antenna area.

However, the layout isn’t set in stone, and the interior can be customized based on the owner’s requirements. There’s just the small matter of finding a buyer willing to splash out the roughly $350 million required to bring it to life. As is customary for a superyacht design of this stature, Saturnia is to be equipped with several top amenities, including a glass-bottom lounge area that offers stunning views of the water below, and it will have a top speed of up to 30 knots,

While the Saturnia concept is still in the early stages of the design process, the project is already generating interest. Lazzarini’s team is hopeful that a buyer will come on board. If the concept was to be picked up, it would take around two and a half years to complete, which means we could see the Saturnia become a reality by 2024.

The unveiling of Lazzarini’s new concept comes after the design studio revealed a series of nature-inspired designs, including the Prodigium, which was notably shaped like a shark. Meanwhile, South Korean designer Yeojin Jung recently unveiled the impressive Estrella superyacht concept, closely resembling the Y-Wing fighter. This fictional spacecraft has appeared in various “Star Wars” movies. The idea won a bronze medal in the 2021 A’Design Award and Competition.
