Lazzarini Design Studio has announced the launch of a new concept, an amphibious vehicle design that acts as a catamaran on water and also maneuvers through rough terrain on land.
The Italian designer designed the 'Pagurus', concept because the yachting industry needed to evolve. In fact when the Pagurus reaches the ground the rotating cylinders lower towards the ground, transforming the catamaran into an amphibious vehicle capable of moving on land up to 30 kilometers per hour.
Pagurus is a 25-meter (82-foot) solar-powered hybrid catamaran that can accommodate a total of 8 guests and 4 crew members. Aside from the solar panels, energy is also generated by helical propellers that use water friction to charge the yacht’s batteries.
It can be built for a price of up to $30 million for the amphibious ‘Crabmaran’ version with reinforced steel.

The 'Pagurus' catamaran could easily traverse on sand or mud.
The yacht can also reach surprisingly fast speeds with an estimated limit of 24 knots (or an estimated 27 miles per hour).
