We have seen many seaplane concepts so far, but this one surpasses them all as greatest does the least. Well, it may sound sheer an exaggeration to many, but I bet you will agree at last. The brainchild of French designer Yelken Octuri who also designs cabins for Airbus, this ‘Flying Yacht’ concept combines his knowledge of aircraft design with love for seas to create this outlandish concept yacht.

The design was recently exhibited at Paris’ Air and Space Museum is one of Yelken’s many designs aimed at giving new horizons to aviation. The concept is the part of designer’s fantasy project and the main idea behind the creation was to generate innovative concepts. However, his Flying Yacht idea doesn’t seem as weird or far-fetched, as many engineers and designers have already approached him to turn it into reality.

This amazing 46-feet long trimaran sailing yacht converts from super yacht to glamorous jet plane with the help of four mobile masts. When on the water, each of the four mobile masts reaches a height of 40-meters and can be individually oriented through a double-jack system, which ensure optimal positioning regardless of wind direction. However, at the time to take off, sails are stored in compartments located inside the each mast that are further lowered down to work as horizontal wings.

Not only is this but the Flying Yacht doesn’t compromise with the luxury and features two main decks, wherein lower deck houses the main room, kitchen and toilet, and upper one has three plush bedrooms and a luxurious bathroom.
