Pierpaolo Lazzarini of Lazzarini Design Studio is known for his unique and extraordinary watercraft creations. Avanguardia is inspired by 1970s Japanese manga and features an extendable control tower that resembles the head of a swan.
The ‘head’ is detachable from the ‘neck’ and can be transformed into an auxiliary 16-metre boat, at which point the top part of the superyacht is then transformed into an auxiliary control tower.
Avanguardia is divided into five decks and could house up to 60 passengers on board, providing accommodation for up to 24 guests, 12 staff and 10 crew. She also houses two helicopters on board and is equipped with two helicopter hangars.
Lazzarini estimates the concept would take an investment of around $500,000,000 to build.
