The Shape, named by its Rome-based team, is dazzling boat designers across the world with its innovative design and sumptuous accommodations. Still a concept, the luxurious yacht is already attracting the interest of investors.
1. €69 million – Beyond luxury
The Rome-based Lazzarini Design Studio has recently unveiled renderings of a brand new 69-meter yacht design featuring a “gaping hole” right in the middle. Designed to run entirely on clean energy, the Shape concept displays a large hole in the middle, referred as the “hole deck”. “Because of the stylistic choice of placing a void inside the superstructure, space on The Shape is the real luxury,” the designers said. The open space is accessible through an entrance on the bow and has steps leading down to the sea level, making it an ideal sun lounging area. Also, the indoor space can be customized to suit the owner’s requirements.
2. Full experience
On the upper deck, the yacht presents a a glass-bottomed infinity pool, offering swimmers an outstanding view of the open space below. As for the the living area, it is located at the rear of the superstructure and consists of six suites, with room for up to 12 guests. Delivering a full experience, the Rome-based designers have included onboard a beach club with a diving platform, a helipad, a garage full of toys and all of the typical amenities seen in a yacht of this stature. “Shape stands out from the rest by avoiding an unnecessarily elaborate design, and by instead having a striking silhouette”, the Italian team stated.
3. Clean energy
The Shape will be equipped with a propulsion system powered by hydrogen, and will run entirely on clean energy, with max speed of around 24 knots, or 12 knots when in full electric mode. Solar energy is bound to power all onboard systems, supported by the solar panels on the yacht’s sundeck
Despite still being a concept, the high-profile yacht has caught the attention of some brokers, the team at Lazzarini said, noting that it would take around 20 months to build and execute such structure. The estimated price of the Shape yacht rounds the €69 million (around $80 million).
