Palladio, a groundbreaking 20-meter hybrid yacht conceptualized by Italian designer Pierpaolo Lazzarini, emerges as a testament to the seamless convergence of design and technology on the open waters. Crafted entirely from carbon fiber, the vessel’s ultra-light structure allows it to reach an impressive maximum speed of 55 knots, propelled by twin Castoldi jets and powered by two FTP engines, each boasting a formidable 1000 horsepower.
The avant-garde design is characterized by a distinctive mouth-shaped front, featuring filtered air intakes on either side to ensure a continuously refreshed environment within the spacious passenger cabin. Accommodating up to 26 passengers, Palladio offers customizable interiors to cater to individual preferences.
Pierpaolo Lazzarini’s commitment to functionality is evident in the elevated upper structure, providing substantial space within both the hull and lower area. The streamlined, pod-like form adds a futuristic aesthetic while serving as an ideal housing for a spacious hydrogen fuel cell tank and power generators. This integration enhances operational efficiency, allowing Palladio to seamlessly transition into a full electric 22-knot sailing mode, maintaining this speed for up to 4 hours through the use of electric motors, transmission technology, and advanced fuel cell systems.
Inside the yacht, the main cabin comfortably seats 22 passengers, while the front section accommodates an additional 4, including the Captain. Lazzarini’s design introduces versatility to the main passenger cabin, where corners can be configured as toilets or dinettes, offering a customizable dimension to the onboard experience. The rear section of the yacht is strategically designed to house part of the crew and facilitate efficient luggage storage, making Palladio a harmonious blend of innovation and practicality on the high seas.
