(CNN) — With so many inventive superyachts in the works, coming up with a bold and innovative is proving harder and harder for top designers.
However, an Italian design studio has managed to do just that.
Known as Project Centauro, the 360-foot vessel looks like a cross between a battleship and a technologically advanced spaceship.

Project Centauro can accommodate 14 guests, with an entertainment area, indoor pool and diving station, hot tub and observation lounge among amenities on board.
The yacht also has a large beach club inspired by ancient temples, which connects to the main deck via a staircase, and a spa area with a sauna and hammam.
Powered by two MTU engines teamed with steerable water jets, the vessel will have a cruising speed of 18 knots and a maximum speed of around 20 knots.
This means the vessel could potentially be a reality by 2022, if the design is picked up by a client quickly.
It’s unclear how much it would cost to produce, as the interior of the yacht will be purely based on the client’s preferences. But it’s safe to say they’ll be hefty price tag attached.
It’s the latest in a series of innovative superyacht concepts to be revealed in the past few months, as naval architects and designers attempt to push boundaries as far as they can.
While all of these enterprises are still in the very early phases of conception, their existence is creating a lot of buzz in the superyacht industry.
