Italian designer Gabriele Teruzzi Yacht & Design has followed his extreme 150 metre concept Shaddai with a 42 metre design called Elle.D.
Revealed to mark a year since the studio opened, the concept aims to “reshape the yachting lifestyle” and has been inspired by “a metropolitan high rise”, Teruzzi said.
Key features include a 79 square metre beach club, which features a centrepiece pool fed by a waterfall from the superstructure above. A further two spa pools sit on the foredeck and 108 square metre sun deck. The sun deck also features an American bar and dining area, as well as a lounge area with two L-shaped sofas.
The dining area, which has a table big enough to seat 10 guests, sits just inside the interior area of the main deck. The main saloon meanwhile has been described as "the heart of the project" and includes a panoramic sky saloon thanks to the glass-centric exterior.
The interior meanwhile has been decorated in "light tones" and includes panels flanked by mirrors which allows more light into the interior.
Accommodation is for a total of 10 guests in four VIP cabins and the 67 square metre owner's suite, and seven crew.
The yacht also has enough storage to house a 5.1 metre tender, alongside two Jetskis.
“The unobstructed view is highlighted by the seamless integration of both interior and exterior, exceeding the traditional boundaries of yachting on a 42 metre,” Teruzzi added.
“It becomes a skilful emulation of a different sensation. One which a metropolitan high rise evokes and one that is naturally inclusive of its surroundings.”
The result, Teruzzi said, is a yacht that combines “privacy, luxury and functionality.”
Terruzzi has collaboration with NavalHEAD’s Andrea Agrusta on the engineering of Elle.D and revealed he has projects underway with Fincantieri and Lürssen.
Fincantieri senior vice president Mauro Parodi described Teruzzi as a "fresh talent" and revealed he is developing "a new design proposal in the 65 -80 metre range.”
The studio's first project, an 8.5 metre motor boat, is currently underway at Alfastreet Marine. Due for delivery later this year, the project was also engineered by NavalHEAD’s Andrea Agrusta.
