As announced by the megayacht’s design office, the first-ever hydrogen-powered superyacht measuring 112m/370ft has NOT been sold to a Tech Giant. Initially, the various media outlets reported the mega yacht being sold for $650 million to the renowned tech giant, however, as it appears, this is unfortunately not true.
Mega yacht AQUA was designed to be powered by liquid hydrogen stored in the 28 tonne vacuum-sealed tanks with a temperature of -253C/423F. While the water would only be the byproduct of hydrogen and oxygen, the yacht’s two one-megawatt motors and propellors are to be powered through the fuel cells, allowing a top speed of 17 knots. With a cruising speed of 10-12 knots, her expected range is 3,750nm.

The innovative technology used in the construction of the vessel will allow guests to enjoy the warmth even while relaxing and entertaining on decks, thanks to the gel-fuelled fire bowls. This innovative approach will allow not having to burn wood or coals, attributing to the yacht eco-friendly status.
The extraordinary exterior profile features smooth lines, a pointy bow and a prolonged stern. The 360-degree views the observation room placed at the bow provides great views of the surroundings, while the wheelhouse is capsule-shaped and places at the top of the superstructure.
The owner’s suite features a private spa, a spacious bathroom and a dressing room. Spanned across five decks, living spaces have meditation and relaxation areas, beauty room, massage room and several sunbathing and dining areas.
Featuring five decks, AQUA was designed to accommodate 14 guests assisted by a crew of 31.
