We present a systematic method of constructing limit-quasiperiodic structures with non-crystallographic point symmetries. Such structures are different aperiodic-ordered structures from quasicrystals, and we call them 'superquasicrystals'. They are sections of higher dimensional limit-periodic structures constructed on 'super-Bravais-lattices'. We enumerate important super-Bravais-lattices. Superquasicrystals with strong self-similarities form an important subclass. The simplest example is a two-dimensional octagonal superquasicrystal.
