Italian designer Lazzarini has unveiled concept images for its latest superyacht – the aptly named 450 foot (137 metre) Avanguardia that resembles a swan. 

This first-of-its-kind superyacht features a sleek 'neck' and an elegant body in an attractive layered design, intended to resemble a swan's wings and feathers. 

Any would-be owner of the Avanguardia – meaning ‘vanguard’ in English – can steer their vessel from the 'head' of the swan, which acts as its control tower. 

The extraordinary swan-shaped 'megayacht', which stretches more than than the length of a football pitch, would set owners back £376 million ($500 million).
