A new 70-foot 'hyper ship concept' claims to 'fly' over water and has retractable wings and 'spacecraft-like interiors'.  The Persico F70, a boat that designers say will float on the waves with just a small crew, is being developed by Italian yacht builders Persico Marine in collaboration with Carkeek Design Partners and Pininfarina Nautical.

A new 70-foot ‘hyper ship concept’ claims to ‘fly’ over water and has retractable wings and ‘spacecraft-like interiors’. The Persico F70, a boat that designers say will float on the waves with just a small crew, is being developed by Italian yacht builders Persico Marine in collaboration with Carkeek Design Partners and Pininfarina Nautical.

The designers of the carbon composite yacht boast a “sleek, streamlined silhouette that enables dizzying sailing.” They also say that while most foiling yachts are “designed exclusively for speed”, the Persico F70 “combines high performance with luxurious interiors” meaning it can be used for both racing and leisurely sailing. .

Persico Marine claims that the yacht, which was first announced in March, exceeds 100 feet and can "fly" at only 10 knots, but did not give exact speed figures.

In addition to the retractable wings, it also promises “lifters on the rudder blade that together allow you to fly over the water with minimal drag.”

Marcello Persico, President of Persico Marine, said: 'Integrating the performance of a full foiling regatta, excellence in design and the characteristics of the daysailer is a fascinating challenge, which we have shared with Carkeek Design Partners and Pininfarina.'

The yacht's futuristic-looking interior space (pictured) is adorned by a series of 'structural rings' which, according to Pininfarina's chief yacht designer Daniele Mazzon, emphasize the length and width of the ship.

Persico also said: “Building a great team is the best market entry for a boat capable of making history, as the Persico F70 project sets out to do.” The interior of the yacht concept is shown in the photo.

“Such craftsmanship requires the highest level of design, extensive technology and construction expertise, and the best designers – we have built a strong partnership to achieve this ambitious goal,” added Persico.
