The diamond-inspired superyacht concept with an onboard “waterfall”


(CNN) — Real diamonds should not float in water. But this brilliant new superyacht concept with an onboard cinema, helipad and three built-in swimming pools, is clearly an exception to the rule.

Designed by the Italian studio Gabriele Teruzzi Yachts & Design, the Stella del Sud concept is inspired by the famous 128-carat Cartier diamond from which it takes its name.

New renderings of the 110-metre (360ft) vessel showcase her sleek, clean lines, which resemble the shape of a diamond, as well as a “dramatic side window design that connects all decks”.

The ship’s endless glass panels are positioned to reflect the light, ensuring that it constantly sparkles.

On board, the superyacht is to be equipped with a long foredeck that houses a helipad, as well as a private salon with L-shaped sofas, ideal for entertaining guests.

The main deck can accommodate eight VIP cabins, a gym and a piano lounge overlooking this impressive side window.

A luxurious open beach club, which happens to be based on the Royal Palace of Caserta, a former royal residence in southern Italy created by Bourbon King Charles III as a rival to Versailles, is among its many standout features. .

The spacious area includes three pools connected on different levels, creating what Teruzi describes as a “cascade effect”.

Unparalleled views

According to the design team, the ship’s split-levels have been “strategically designed” to provide passengers with unobstructed sea views from the main salon, which is surrounded by large picture windows that display “rainfall” lighting the night.

There’s also a 3,500-square-foot sun deck with a lounge area, a hot tub, plus an alfresco dining area with a round table.

One would expect a lavish owner’s suite on a superyacht as opulent as this one, and the Stella del Sud does not disappoint.

Taking up much of the bridge deck, it includes “his and hers” bathrooms, walk-in closets and a salt wall, but the highlight here is definitely the aquarium set into the ceiling above the bed.

Time to shine?

There is also additional entertainment in the form of a cinema, which will be erected in the hold deck to take advantage of the dark surroundings and ensure the best possible onboard viewing experience.

Meanwhile, both sides of the hull are equipped with two hull doors which open onto two separate 30 square meter sundecks.

The Stella del Sud remains a concept for the moment, but will this “sparkling diamond” have the chance to shine on the water in the not too distant future?

The Gabriele Teruzzi Yachts & Design team have been notified of any further design developments, but it is certainly attracting a lot of attention.

The Stella del Sud is one of many exciting new superyachts to be unveiled in recent weeks, including Swiss design studio Kurt Merki’s nature-focused Symbiosis, which features decks filled with greenery, and the Geko 60 of 60 meters from Franco Gnessi & Partners, which resembles a Japanese pagoda.
