This 360-feet superyacht proves that inspiration can be found anywhere, even in a little diamond. In the case of Stella Del Sud, the concept is influenced by a not-so-little famous Cartier 128-carat diamond. Italian design studio Gabriele Teruzzi Yachts & Design emulates the precious stone with distinctive lines and a sharp hull. The brilliance of a diamond is also incorporated with the use of ample glass. Inside is the double-height main saloon surrounded by enormous panoramic windows welcoming abundant natural light.
Things turn genuinely magical when the sun sets, and the magical ‘rain effect’ lighting comes into play from the double-height ceiling to illuminate the room like stars. A spiral staircase takes you up to the main deck that houses eight VIP staterooms for 18 guests, terraces, and a piano lounge.
The bridge deck is where the owner’s suite is situated, along with a private office, his-and-hers bathrooms with Jacuzzis, walk-in-wardrobes, and a beautiful aquarium on the ceiling. The lower decks are pretty engaging, with a well-equipped wellness area complete with a state-of-the-art gym, sauna, massage room, and even a dedicated beauty area. Among the unique features aboard is the Aqua Room, where guests revel in a bar, laze in a Jacuzzi or catch up on reading on relaxation beds.
The lower deck is home to crew quarters and the tender garage. Interestingly, the bilge in Stella Del Sud features a cinema. The most fascinating aspect of the luxury vessel is the vast outdoor decks.
Taking inspiration from the Royal Palace of Caserta in Italy, the largest palace erected in Europe during the 18th century; the beach club is a 23-meter open area influenced by the illusion of multidirectional space. This is reflected in several split levels incorporating three cascading swimming pools to form a waterfall effect.
Stella Del Sud’s foredeck features a helipad, intimate lounge area, and swimming pool. The 330 square-meter sun deck, as per Superyacht Times, offers two different connected regions, with the first located forward with an infinity custom Jacuzzi.
The second space allows guests to dine alfresco around a round dining table. Don’t the carats of a diamond seem lackluster in comparison to the brilliance of the Stella Del Sud concept?
