Shark-inspired $1 billion superyacht so big you need vehicle to get around

This shark-inspired beast of a superyacht concept is so big, passengers would need a golf cart to explore it.

Estimated to cost upwards of $1 billion – its price is as terrifying as its teeth-shaped windows.

Nicknamed ‘Outrageous’ due to the gigayacht’s wild proportions and design, the shark-shaped superyacht concept is the work of Italian design studio, Lazzarini.

Founded by Pierpaolo Lazzarini, the studio has gained attention for conceptualizing and designing innovative watercraft that refuse to conform.

Instead they’e renowned for their visually stunning and outside-the-box designs.

They include Saudi Arabia’s $8b turtle-shaped yacht that would be a floating city, a flying superyacht powered by helium, and a ‘flying’ superyacht.

The streamlined and aerodynamic design of Outrageous was inspired by a hammerhead shark.

This inspiration is reflected in the windows that run down the entire length of the ship and represent the teeth.

A second layer of glass over that is reflective of the shark’s gills.

At 322m (1056ft) in length, it would dwarf Jeff Bezos’ yacht, Koru.

The superyacht has a huge top deck that hangs over the bow.

This silhouette is a nod to the distinctive head shape of its aquatic muse.

The beast of a vessel is also painted grey to more closely mimic its apex-predator inspiration.

A double helipad is located on the ship to allow its wealthy guests to arrive and leave seamlessly in convoy.

When not in use, said heliport can be retracted to expose the yacht’s interior.

There are also five swimming pools, solar panels, ample deck space for lounging, and room for several tenders at the stern – with plenty more to explore besides.

Lazzarini say: “At this stage the Outrageous is just a concept, however, an estimation in production cost for a client should be around £860 million.”
