looking to contemporary skyscrapers has an alternate creative expression, gabriele teruzzi frames the futuristic ‘shaddai’ yacht concept with a suspended private terrace. the captivating vantage point houses the owner’s cabin to watch sunsets and together with the infinity pool, the 38 meter tower produces a visual effect of water with no boundary, merging with the sky.

the main hull is 150 meters long and includes a beach club and main deck connected by scenegraphic infinity pool. influenced by the most luxurious and exclusive hotels, the 300 square meter beach club features a main aquarium in the middle that divides the two sides of the yacht. both the color combinations and arrangement distribute the space in ultimate luxury.

  • While it looks striking, it looks like each degree of roll would equate to about 2 feet of distance at the top of the tower.

    It sort of suggests that trying to be in the owner’s cabin in the top of the tower while the yacht was in motion, particularly in rough seas, would be akin to trying to survive being in a clothes dryer. Having the tower as an observation deck may be workable for when not in motion, but having living quarters in it seems unworkable.

  • I see this collection of renderings is filed under “technology”.

    I wonder what technology, other than a massively deep sailboat type keel, will prevent this thing (monument to the .001%) from capsizing in a heavy or confused sea state, worst of all, following astern.

    I don’t see technology here; I see eye-candy or click-bate.

    Apparently it worked – Shame on me?

  • Those who commented on the stability of the ship. Well as an engineer I can tell you that’s not that difficult to stabilise the ship, and diminish the rolling… and if you have read carefully the description the ship has massive proportions (e g 150m long). Making the tower structure out of carbon fiber and the rest of the hull made out of steel, this ship can be put on the sees. The tower swimming-pool on the contrary must be redesigned to prevent water loss and swimmer’s safety. Otherwise this is a very nice job Gabriele Teruzzi!Well done!
