This is Plectrum, a flying superyacht with a whopping price tag attached to it.
It’s a ‘flying’ yacht because Plectrum is technically a hydrofoil, which means it can lift itself from the water as its speed increases.
There is plenty of speed to play with, because this massive 243-foot yacht is designed to run on three motors for a combined power output of 15,000 hp.
According to Lazzarini Studio, it can reach a top speed of 75 knots – or 140 km/h.
That means this massive yacht is theoretically faster than a Brabus speedboat.
The Italian design studio says inspiration for the Plectrum came from the USS Plainview, an American-made hydrofoil launched in 1965.
The hull is made from a blend of several composite materials, including carbon fiber, of course, and finished in an ultra-shiny shade of orange.
And as you’d expect, the Plectrum yacht has a helipad, a beach club with a swimming pool, and a garage large enough for two tenders.
There’s also another garage for the owner’s supercars and water toys.
Might we suggest a McLaren 720s finished in matching orange paint?
Even though this is technically just a prototype, Lazzarini said it can be built on request for a cool $87 million.
Lazzarini Design Studio is a staple name in the industry.
Unlike other concepts that only exist on paper, Lazzarini confirmed this production of the orange megayacht could potentially start tomorrow.
‘All’ they need, apparently, is $87 million.
