Lazzarini Design has shared their latest concept – the itinerant floating city.The Pangeos is an itinerant floating city, comprising various hotels, shopping centers, parks, ship and aircraft ports, and all other facilities needed to house up to 60,000 guests.The terayacht takes its name from Pangea, the supercontinent that existed millions of years ago during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic eras.Pangeos extends its length for 550 meters and measures 610 meters at its widest point — the wings.
The terayacht proposal takes its name from Pangea, the supercontinent that existed millions of years ago during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic eras. Translating this into a somewhat futuristic expression, Pangeos extends its length for 550 meters (1,800 ft) and measures 610 meters at its widest point — the wings. If realized, the turtle-shaped vessel will become the world’s largest floating structure ever built.
The side wings of the floating structure offers 19 private villa and 69 apartments on each side.The conception of a similar sizes’ vessel, involves the realization of a specific shipyard/dam infrastructure, that floods levitating the terayacht when it will be launched.
Pangeos is equipped with 9 HTS engines.Each full electric motor is capable of 16,800 hp and is powered by various in-board energy sources.Pushed from a jet drive transmission, the tera-structure will be able to cruise at a speed of 5 knots.
