Lazzarini Design has dished out a stunning-looking concept which dips into the world of lightweight engineering and radical design. Called as ‘Embryon’, this superyacht has a sleek design along with a 24-meter tender concept. However, it is the transparent carbon-fiber hull that captures our attention. Carbon fiber is used in extreme hypercars and racing boats while its biggest advantage is its rigidity plus of course it is lighter than other materials.
Made from dry carbon fiber, the Embryon is 30 percent lighter than other boats of a similar size which explains why this material has been liberally used. Lightness also adds to the performance- which this concept isn’t exactly lacking in that either with a diesel and hydrogen propulsion system comprising of twin MAN V12 2000hp engines and one electric 1260hp engine. Expect a top speed of 65 knots which via its open-top cockpit environment, will make for a heady experience for the senses! The studio also says that the yacht can be configured to be run on electricity or be completely hydrogen-powered too thus being environmentally conscious is also a part of the agenda regarding the Embryon.
Despite its sporting pretensions, the Embryon has the required luxury that you would expect from a superyacht via four cabins, a sunbed, and a spacious L-shaped lounge area. In total it can accommodate eight guests across its cabins. A VIP and a master suite further drive home the point that the Embryon is a perfect superyacht for long journeys. More than anything, the stunning lines draped on it do make it one of the best-looking concept yachts that we have seen. The transparent hull no doubt is an intrinsic part of its alluring design and makes it an exotic hyper boat of sorts. How Lazzarini has combined traditional materials with space-age design plus execution is no doubt a tantalizing combination. Expect a €6,000,000 price tag, which we think is sort of justified given how other-worldly the Embryon looks. This is also the second superyacht in quick succession after the 69 meters ‘Shape’.
