This striking yacht design, aimed at those with a strong passion for both sailing and aviation, could revolutionize the way we travel the sea. George Lucian
The brainchild of Monaco-based artist George Lucian, Dare to Dream affords sufficient space for an airship to land on deck. George Lucian
The airship itself is called 'Flying Diamond' and can accommodate two people, as well as a saloon for dinners, cocktails and relaxation. George Lucian
At 140 meters in length, Dare to Dream has the space to host at least 12 guests, though there will also be entertaining and living spaces on board the airship. George Lucian
"My concept is inspired from the yachting industry and military vessels design," Lucian says. George Lucian
Lucian adds that the design was also inspired by his fascination for the zeppelins which transported passengers across the Atlantic in a luxurious and romantic manner at the beginning of the last century. George Lucian
The airship is 100m in length and would offer the yacht's owner the chance to gain a different perspective while sailing the Mediterranean, for example. George Lucian
The owner can leave the yacht and spend a couple of days flying above to ocean -- or have dinner floating above the bay of Monaco -- before returning to deck. George Lucian
Lucian says the elegance and tranquility that cruise liners and airships offered at the beginning on the 20th century has been lost. George Lucian
He wants Dare to Dream to give its owner a feeling of old-fashioned elegance. George Lucian
How long before Dare to Dream takes to the high seas? George Lucian
