Next in the series of nature-inspired superyacht concepts from design studio Lazzarini is the 153-metre Prodigium. Moving on from the studio’s first swan-shaped concept, Prodigium is a brand-new design inspired by the shark.

The main living area is on the uppermost level and resembles the outline of a shark. Roman columns positioned on either side of the entrance to support the upper structure and its swimming pool.Photo: Lazzarini Design StudioPhoto: Lazzarini Design StudioPhoto: Lazzarini Design StudioAs well as hosting up to 44 guests, the concept holds up to eight tenders and three helicopters in her three hangars. Her rear deck incorporates a large port area with the capacity to accommodate yachts up to 30 metres in length. This area can also lift and lower up to 40,000 kg of yachts, tenders or toys.Photo: Lazzarini Design StudioPhoto: Lazzarini Design StudioPhoto: Lazzarini Design StudioThe spacious 300-square-metre rooftop is covered in solar panels which would theoretically provide enough power for lighting the yacht and manoeuvring her while docking. Her three jet engines and twin electric centreline engines would allow Prodigium to reach an estimated cruising speed of around 22 knots.Photo: Lazzarini Design StudioPhoto: Lazzarini Design StudioLazzarini has promised to release four more nature-inspired designs in the coming year.
