Concept mega-yacht would let owner swan around in luxury

Posted by in category: futurism

The Jet Capsule isn’t an ugly duckling by any means, but designer Pierpaolo Lazzarini imagines a beautiful swan with his latest creation, the Avanguardia. The mega-yacht would feature a small watercraft that would serve as a removable cockpit in this ambitious conceptual project.

The Avanguardia (Vanguard in English) is inspired by an unspecified Japanese Manga from the 1970s and its defining feature is that long “neck.” The idea is that the neck would serve as a crane and could be used to safely deposit a smaller craft in the water when anchor’s dropped, allowing it to be used to reach shore, for example. Interestingly, the neck would actually be placed in a lowered back position while sailing – so presumably the raised position depicted above would end up mostly being used for showing off at port.

“Due to an extendable crane/bridge located in the bow (front) in this case named ‘neck,’ the head can be dropped off and used as an auxiliary 16-meter [52-ft] boat,” explains Lazzarini Design Studio. “During the sailing, the head ‘control tower cockpit’ adjusts its position by lowering in the middle of the mega-yacht body (like a swan, the neck goes in the middle of the wings).”
