Italian designer Gabriel Teruzzi has conceived Shaddai, a $250million super-yacht that’s supposed to make you feel like a deity. Check out its specs…

Ever dreamt of owning a yacht that makes you feel like a God? Well, if you’ve got a quarter of a billion dollars burning a hole in your pocket, you might be able to make that dream a reality.

Italian designer Gabriel Teruzzi has created Shaddai: omnipotence, a spectacular mega-yacht concept.

Teruzzi’s design takes its cues from modern skycrapers, the Tower of Babel and the Egyptian pyramids. However, the objective is to do more than create a thing of beauty. Gabriel says his blueprint intends “to take the owner to a point of extreme sense of power”.

The yacht’s name reflects Teruzzi’s mission statement; ‘Shaddai’ is a hebrew word that has a rough equivalent in English as “omnipotent”.

As yet, there is no news on whether any of the world’s billionaires will be stumping up the cash to realise Teruzzi’s vision.

Even if they do, Shaddai will not be the world’s most expensive mega-yacht. According to, as of 2016 that honour belongs to the $4.5billion History Supreme.

$250m (£170m) seems like good value now, eh?

The yacht’s “luxury space”, the Beach Club, is a dual-aspect lounge area with an aquarium.
