Lazzarini’s ‘Hole-y’ New Superyacht Concept

The 85-metre vessel also offers landing space for not one but two helicopters.

They say three times is a trend. If that’s the case, Lazzarini Design is very close to making superyachts with giant holes in the middle a thing—in conceptual form, at least.

The disruptive design studio has just unveiled a new 85-metre vessel called Icaria that is characterized by a massive void in the superstructure. It comes just one month after the Italian outfit revealed the 68-metre superyacht concept Shape, which, you guessed it, was all air amidship.

As with its predecessor, Icaria’s open main deck, or “hole deck” as Lazzarini calls it, can be customised with different furniture depending on how seafarers intend to use it. Lazzarini has fitted the sprawling space with a huge bar that will allow those on board to enjoy alfresco sundowners by the water’s edge.

Aside from that one, quite big, similarity, the superyachts have rather different silhouettes. Shape sports sleek lines and a pointed bow while Icaria features an imposing front end with a large bridge enclosed in glass. From here, the owner or captain can survey the high seas with total protection from the elements.

The vessels differ in terms of what they offer, too. Crowned by a glass-bottomed pool, Shape is focused on relaxation. Icaria, meanwhile, appears to be geared toward exploration. It comes equipped with landing space for not one but two helicopters, along with a fully-stocked tender garage that can be accessed via two foldable side doors. Further to the aft, the vessel has a generous swim platform and two cranes that will ensure more fun is had at sea.

Lazzarini did not share details regarding Icaria’s propulsion, but Shape (above) is designed to run exclusively on clean energy, with hydrogen powering the vessel and rooftop solar panels generating electricity for the onboard amenities. If built, it stands to reason that Icaria would sport a similar setup.

Just one question remains, will we see a third hole-y superyacht?
