This AirYacht concept is an insane mix between a yacht and a blimp

It can autonomously fly at altitudes of up to 3000m and will be available in 2026.

Feast your eyes on the AirYacht, one of the craziest concepts we have ever seen.

As the name rather obviously implies, it’s a yacht than can fly.

But it’s how it flies that makes this concept so crazy.

Designed by Franck Darnet of Darnet Design, the AirYacht is actually comprised of two separate parts.

One of those is the 60m (197ft) yacht, but the other is a massive 200m (656ft) blimp.

The two are designed to connect and fit together perfectly, with the ‘airship’ lifting the yacht up into the air.

The airship operates autonomously and can remain in the air for as much as a week.

It can cruise at altitudes of up to 3000m (9800ft) at a speed of 50 knots (around 93km/h or 58mph).

Currently, the company plans to use a hybrid powertrain to propel it, but hopes to run it on hydrogen eventually.


The yacht itself acts as a luxurious cabin for between 10-32 guests depending on the configuration.

There’s 750m2 (8070ft2) of space on board across three levels.

Inside the AirYacht

On board, you’ll find everything from a pool and spa to even a full gym.

There’s also a helipad and a garage for cars or other toys as well.

However, due to the weight of the yacht thanks to all those amenities, there are no engines on board.

That means it relies on the airship to get around, but it does mean you can put it anywhere – not just on water.

Orders are already open for the AirYacht, with first deliveries slated for late 2026.

Just be sure not to mistake it for the Lazzarini concept it coincidentally shares a name with.
