Plectrum: The 74m ‘flying’ foil superyacht concept by Lazzarini Design

Written by Sophie Spicknell

Italy-based design studio Lazzarini Design has unveiled the rendering for a new 74-metre foil superyacht Plectrum. The motor yacht moves and lifts above the water surface to give the effect that she is ‘flying.’  Plectrum yacht concept by Lazzarini DesignPhoto: Lazzarini DesignPlectrum takes her design inspiration from the latest America's Cup sailing yachts, more specifically the Prada models, that use foil cant systems to lift and lower the immensely strong, and heavy foil cant arms.Plectrum yacht concept by Lazzarini DesignPhoto: Lazzarini DesignPlectrum has been conceived to be entirely composed and constructed with dry carbon fibre composite materials. The result is a super light motor yacht that can reach an estimated eye-watering top speed of 75 knots.Plectrum yacht concept by Lazzarini DesignPhoto: Lazzarini DesignThe foil system of Plectrum can be adjusted depending on the cruising needs and the width can be changed from a 15-metre beam when berthed or anchored, to 20-metres when the yacht is sailing at high speed.

Plectrum is able to move and lift above the water surface thanks to three hydrogen powered motors. Each motor is capable of providing 5,000 horsepower, with a total horsepower of 15,000.Plectrum yacht concept by Lazzarini Design general arrangementPhoto: Lazzarini DesignThe interior layout of Plectrum has been subdivided into four decks. Her main deck is equipped with six guest staterooms, as well as a owners suite. Plectrum also features a bow lifting garage and helicopter hanger, with garage space for two tenders. Her rear garage is also able to carry water toys and a car.Plectrum yacht concept by Lazzarini DesignPhoto: Lazzarini DesignCurrently the superyacht Plectrum is still in the concept stage, but Lazzarini Design says she can be built on request for €80 million.Plectrum yacht concept by Lazzarini DesignPhoto: Lazzarini Design
