Xenos Hyperyacht by Lazzarini Design, World’s Fastest Yacht in Its Class
Italian designer Pierpaolo Lazzarini, known for his peculiar taste for the dramatic and love of futuristic shapes, is back. His latest project, the Xenos hyperyacht aims to be the fastest yacht in the world in its class, a luxurious yet practical vessel that will serve both billionaire owners and fleet operators.

Xenos was officially unveiled at the end of last month. Like other projects from Lazzarini Design (the Jet Capsule in particular), it is made to be highly customizable, thus offering a little something for the potential needs of every (rich) owner. Regardless of extra features, what the base model stands out for is, as the name implies, speed: with a quadruple engine setup, the Xenos would be able to reach top speeds of 90 knots, which would make it the fastest 130-foot (39.6-meter) yacht in the world.

Lazzarini offers two models for the Xenos: the Hyperyacht and the Seajet Piercer. Both use the same hull, which can be either a conventional one or a foil setup, but differs in purpose: the Hyperyacht is for private use and comes equipped accordingly, while the Seajet Piercer could be used as ferry, being able to transport as many as 180 passengers.

Measuring 130 feet (39.6 meters) in length and 26 feet (8 meters) in width, Xenos combines luxury with stellar performance on the water. The hull is made of steel and carbon and is specifically designed for comfortable rides. Power can come from a twin-, triple or even quadruple-engine setup (Cat 3,650 BHP each), delivering between 7,300 BHP and 15,000 BHP.

Photochromic windows would ensure that guests and / or passengers would make the most of the ride in absolute comfort, while ArchItaly solar panel systems would further improve the performance of the yacht. A hybrid / electric power configuration is possible, thanks to this Lazzarini partner, allowing for 8 hours of autonomy in fully electric sail, the design studio says.

The Hyperyacht model of the Xenos is designed with the adventure-seeking billionaire in mind. As such, it offers ample and luxurious accommodation, as well as plenty of space to store and transport favorite essential toys. This includes a Bugatti, because no hyperyacht is complete without a matching hypercar. The car, Bugatti or not, could be lowered directly onto the pier thanks to a hydraulic lift and adjustable bridge.

The Hyperyacht comes with three spacious rooms with kitchen and living room below, and a lounge and sizable saloon on the upper deck.

Meanwhile, the Seajet Piercer version is made to transport passengers, whether from land to a superyacht or for tours offered by a fleet operator. Seating would be much like in an airplane (except not packed like sardines), with the premium area featuring four-seat arrangements with a small table in the middle.

In this version of the Xenos, the rear area of the yacht would be turned into a reception / desk entrance, allowing access on board to the passengers. According to Lazzarini, because we live in uncertain times and no one wants to imagine a trip in enclosed spaces with 179 other people, the Seajet Piercer would comply with all safety requirements, and then some. Air sanitation recycling system, thermal scanners at the entry point and illumination by UV-C/UV-V germicidal lamps would be standard features.

Lazzarini Design doesn’t mention a starting price for the base model of this still-a-concept super fast yacht, but there is this mention: you can get the Hyperyacht model with the Bugatti included for just $32,800,000. Even after taking into consideration the fact that Bugattis are the most expensive exotics in the world, this is still a very costly yacht. No one said exclusivity was cheap.
