A stunning new hyperyacht has been unveiled that’s been described by the designers as a ‘Ferrari of the seas’ – and it even comes with a garage for the owner’s road-going Ferrari (though they’ll need to be careful about getting it splashed with saltwater).

Behold the 88ft nine-million-euro (£7.5million/$10million) Gran Turismo Mediterranea, which also features supercar-style gull-wing side openings and has enough power to hit 75 knots – about 85mph.

The creator, Rome-based Lazzarini Design Studio, reveals that the boat has foil wings that deploy to lift the boat – which comes in a Ferrari-style red – out of the water at speeds exceeding 20 knots (23mph).

The garage is located at the back of the yacht, and is formed by a platform that can also be used as a sundeck.

Making their way into the interior of the hyperyacht, passengers will enter an atrium that leads to the upper and lower cabins.

The lower level of the yacht features a ‘large living room’ with a kitchen, and space for three to four guest bedrooms, as well as one bedroom for two crew members. This space will be fully customisable by the yacht’s owner.

The upper level of the yacht encompasses a second living area, as well as the captain’s cabin.

Various ‘automotive design’ references influenced the appearance and the function of the yacht, according to a statement. 

For example, a ‘hood scoop’, a feature that typically improves the passage of air through the engine of a motor car, was implemented into the design.

It will be powered by 6,600 brake-horsepower engines and weigh under 22 tonnes.

A statement adds that the yacht can ‘cruise at elevated speeds with extreme sailing comfort’. 

This isn’t the first amazing design that Lazzarini has dreamt up – it is also responsible for a swan-shaped superyacht, a £450million shark-inspired mega-yacht, and a sleek yacht with a gaping hole in the middle.

The Gran Turismo Mediterranea is currently a concept and would cost ‘about nine million euros to make it real’. For more information visit lazzarinidesignstudio.com.
