The concept of a diamond-inspired superyacht with a “waterfall” on board

(CNN) – Real diamonds should not float in water. But this brilliant new superyacht concept with an on-board cinema, helipad and three integrated pools is clearly the exception to the rule.

Designed by Italian studio Gabriele Teruzzi Yachts & Design, the Stella del Sud concept is inspired by the famous 128-carat Cartier diamond from which it takes its name.

New images of the 110-meter (360-foot) vessel showcase its sleek, sharp lines that resemble a diamond shape, as well as “a striking side window design that connects all decks.”

The vessel’s endless glass panels are positioned to reflect the light, ensuring that it continuously shines.

On board, the superyacht is to be equipped with a long foredeck that contains a helipad, as well as a private lounging area with L-shaped sofas that is ideal for entertaining guests.

On the main deck there is room for eight VIP staterooms, a gym and a piano area overlooking that impressive side window.

A luxurious outdoor beach club located in the Royal Palace of Caserta, a former royal residence in southern Italy created by Bourbon King Charles III as a rival to Versailles, is among its many standout features.

The spacious area consists of three connected swimming pools on different levels, creating what Teruzi describes as a “waterfall effect”.

Incomparable views

According to the design team, the vessel’s split levels have been “strategically designed” to offer passengers unparalleled sea views from the main salon, surrounded by large panoramic windows that display rain-effect lighting at night.

There’s also a 3,500-square-foot sun deck with a lounging area, hot tub, and an outdoor dining area with a round table.

You’d expect a lavish owner’s suite on a superyacht as gorgeous as this, and Stella del Sud does not disappoint.

Occupying much of the bridge deck, it comes with his and hers bathrooms, walk-in closets and a salt wall, but the highlight here is undoubtedly the fish tank that’s mounted on the ceiling above the bed.

Time to shine?

There is also added entertainment in the form of a cinema which will be raised in the hold deck to take advantage of the dark environment and provide the best possible viewing experience on board.

Meanwhile, both sides of the enclosure are fitted with two doors that open onto two separate 30 square meter terraces.

The concept was inspired by Cartier's 128-carat diamond of the same name.

Stella del Sud remains just a concept at the moment, but will this “shining diamond” get the chance to shine on the water in the not-too-distant future?

The team at Gabriele Teruzzi Yachts & Design is tight-lipped about further development of the design, but it is certainly attracting a lot of attention.

Stella del Sud is one of several exciting new superyachts to be unveiled over the past few weeks, including the nature-focused Symbiosis from Swiss design studio Kurt Merki, which features decks filled with greenery, and the 60m Geko 60 from Franco Gnessi & Partners, which resembles a Japanese pagoda.
