The quarter-billion-dollar yacht designed to make you feel all-powerful
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.
$250m (£170m) seems like good value now, eh?

- 38 meters high
- 105 square meters of private terrace in the suspended cabin
