There’s a swan-shaped superyacht and the head is a detachable boat

This swan superyacht is probably one of the most fascinating and spectacular vessels ever designed.

It’s called the ‘Avanguardia’ and it’s a 450-foot megayacht concept designed in Italy.

In fact, the name Avanguardia is Italian for ‘vanguard’ or ‘forefront’.

The swan shape actually serves a purpose because the yacht comprises five separate decks and it can fit up to 60 seafarers.

The control tower is located inside the ‘head’ of the swan.


And aside from the fact that it’s visually stunning, it’s also a technical masterpiece.

The ‘neck’ of the swan is connected to the rest of the yacht by a flexible arm giving full of range of movement.

The head can be lowered all the way down to water level and used separately as a detachable 50-foot tender.

Lazzarini Design Studio, the company that created this, has thought of everything because there’s also enough room on this giant vessel to accommodate your supercars, your jets and even a chopper.

The heliport is situated on the top level and you can easily park up to 4-6 vehicles in the bowels of the ship.

To top it all off, Lazzarini has also added two two jet capsules located aft, facing the rear of the ship.

Power comes from a pair of electric motors and a Rolls-Royce engine located in the middle.

So this is basically a mid-engined hybrid.

The top speed – maximum cruising speed in nautical terms – is 18 knots, equivalent to 20 mph.

And the bad news; the swan superyacht is just a concept.

Lazzarini said it wants to build it but would need funding.

As things stand, the History Supreme, a 100-foot vessel built for a Malaysian businessman, is the most expensive yacht in the world at $4.8 billion.

The Avanguardia is nearly four times as big so it’s easy to imagine a price tag in the nine-figure range.
