For the modern-day emperor, this stunning 328-foot-long bright sailing yacht has 170 lasers emerging out of its hull to depict oarsmen

Phoenicia is a superyacht concept that can only come to life when notions like practicality and value for money leave the room, for good. It is for those who don’t wish to sail by the norms of luxury, like having several rooms, spas, pools, hammams, and salons. She is the ideal pleasure craft for wealthy seafarers willing to leave the luxuries of land behind and create a new, nearly otherworldly platform to live differently.

That said, Designer Igor Lobanov’s concept is not devoid of luxury; it is packed with it, only packaged to look different. Phoenicia stands out with her pristine white color and unique design elements. It doesn’t take a genius to notice the historical influences that dot the 328-foot superyacht.

She features an intricate latticework gallery, generous open deck spaces, and, a helipad—something even Jeff Bezos’s $500 million Koru, the world’s largest sailing yacht, lacks. That’s the beauty of a concept: you can have it all.

Among Phoenicia’s unconventional elements, her bow pays homage to ancient Greek royal ships. Thanks to exceptional lighting, the image of the yacht at dusk reveals rays that resemble lighted oars, making the yacht look like Triremes—the oar-driven warships that required 170 oarsmen.

Inside, the ship is vast, sheathed in automated Venetian blinds, and spotlessly white. The spaces have been left open and unoccupied, perhaps to show the plethora of possibilities to a deep-pocketed billionaire.

The few amenities evident in the released images include a touch-and-go helipad, a pool, and a beach club. If ever built as conceptualized, Phoenicia would be a tycoon’s multi-million-dollar minimalist Mecca.
