Air YachtItaly

Super-yachts that stay purely on water? That's so pre-2022.

'Air Yacht' is the name of the half yacht, half blimp concept thought up by Italian company Lazzarini Design Studio, designed to sail both the sea and the sky.

The idea is absurd, ridiculous and outrageous...and we absolutely love it.

It moves slowly in the water at about 5 knots (around 10kph) but a bit quicker up in the air, at about 60 knots (or around 110kph). Constructed from carbon fibre, there will be 10 passenger suites on this extraordinary vehicle, and somehow even swimming pools, which defies belief.

It follows the announcement of a gigantic air flying butt earlier this year - another large, slow moving hybrid vehicle of ostentatious design.
