This $86M yacht can ‘fly’ across water

A £70 million ($86 million USD) yacht has been unveiled that can "fly" across water.
The 74-metre Plectrum uses a foil system to rise above the waves and zip along at up to 75 knots.
Italian studio Lazzarini Design Studio says the hull shape takes its design inspiration from the latest America's Cup sailboats.
It would be able to lift above the water surface thanks to three hydrogen-powered motors capable of 5000hp each.
The foil system can be adjustable depending on the cruising needs and can change the width from 15 meters of beam, with closed foil when the yacht is berthed, up to 20 meters of beam while the yacht is sailing on high speed.
Described by Lazzarini as a "super light yacht," Plectrum is conceived to be entirely composed and constructed with dry carbon fiber composite materials. This helps it achieve its impressive speeds.
The vessel is subdivided into four levels, and the main body offers six guest cabins and a shipowner suite.
The yacht features a helicopter hangar, a central garage for two tenders and a rear garage for water toys and a supercar.
Lazzarini explains: "The Plectrum is a concept that can be built on request with an 80
million Euro budget."
