This is the Lazzarini superyacht known as “Shape,” which is 226 feet long and has several unusual design characteristics, one of which is a large hole smack in the midst of it. In addition to the enormous hole in the middle of it, it features a helipad on the top deck, as well as an infinity pool and a jacuzzi.
An Italian design company known as Lazzarini is known for producing outlandish works of art, and their concept known as the “Shape” is not an exception to this rule. They call the arc-shaped hole in the middle of the deck the “hole deck,” and it does have a function.
It is primarily just a sizable recreational space in which the proprietor has the freedom to build anything they choose, such as a bar, ping-pong table, or even a miniature golf course if they so choose. If you don’t mind losing your balls when they eventually wind up in the water, then it shouldn’t be a problem.
In addition to that, if you are standing on the so-called “hole deck,” you will be able to view the bottom of the infinity pool that is located on the top deck when you look up. About the swimming pool, the helipad can be found in extreme proximity to it. Imagine this: you just landed your helicopter, and then three seconds later you found yourself swimming in the pool.
Despite the enormous hole, there is still an abundant amount of space available for an additional swimming pool directly below the top deck, in addition to two sun decksLast but not least, this Lazzarini superyacht features a total of six VIP suites, each of which is equipped with a bathroom of its very own. The boat, much like other concept designs created by Lazzarini, is simply a prototype, and the firm will only build it if they are successful in securing funds for it.
We are all aware that yachts are costly investments, and that hole appears to present something of a challenge from a technical standpoint. When the concept and the scale are taken into consideration, we are looking at a total cost that is greater than $500 million.
