Gran Turismo Mediterranea, the superyacht inspired by Ferrari
The latest concept from Italian design studio Lazzarini Design, it is a Ferrari-inspired superyacht that pays homage to the Italian automaker, with room for a real Ferrari.
Gran Turismo Mediterranea has the ability to cruise at high speeds with extreme comforts, Lazzarini says of the concept. It is capable of flying at incredible speeds of 70 knots.
Gran Turismo Mediterranea is a Ferrari of the sea, with a real Ferrari in the garage.
It’s powered by triple MAN V12 engines, an Arneson transmission, and a Hamilton Jet center thruster that it uses to boost acceleration and turn at high speeds.
By unfolding the foil, the helmet is partially lifted out of the water, reducing drag and making the ride faster and smoother.
Gran Turismo Mediterranea is perfectly capable of sailing at speeds of 35 knots with the cabin doors, which open upwards like gull-wing doors.
This gives the impression that the Gran Turismo Mediterranea is Ferrari’s marine brother, as does the carbon fiber superstructure painted in the expected shade of Ferrari red.
The cockpit is inspired from the color scheme to the pilot’s seats and controls.
The silhouette from the bow to the rear multiple exhaust system is clearly a tribute to Ferrari.
Gran Turismo Mediterranea is 27 meters (85.5 feet) long, 6.3 meters (21 feet) high and has a beam of 6.7 meters (22 feet).
It offers accommodation for four guests who have two cabins on the main and lower decks, while staff are housed in the two cabins below deck.
There is also a saloon behind the cockpit with two comfortable sofas on either side, as well as a dining area on the main deck.
The most striking space is the rear deck, which can be installed as a sun terrace or as a garage for supercars.
This deck can be extended up and out, helping to get the Ferrari to the dock with the push of a button, so it’s ready to go right away.
Gran Turismo Mediterranea is luxurious and visually stunning, with its elegant and powerful lines, designed for speed and comfort,
