If everything goes as planned, the world’s first 3D-printed superyacht that is virtually invisible will be traversing the seas by 2030.

Zero carbon emissions and has a virtually unlimited range

Called Pegasus, the 88 meters long superyacht concept has reflective solar wings for zero emissions and an infinite range.

The reflective solar wings would deliver solar-electric power in combination with a hydrogen hybrid source. Pegasus will use solar energy to convert seawater into hydrogen. Hydrogen will be then converted into electricity with the help of fuel cells onboard and stored in Lithium-ion batteries.

International designer Jozeph Forakis conceived the idea of this futuristic yacht on a beach in Koufonissi island, Greece.

Combination of advanced technologies to achieve sustainability, range, and structural integrity

In a statement, Forakis said that the superyacht Pegasus would be as close to the sea and nature as possible. Multi-tiered glass wings on which the sky and the clouds will be reflected, making it virtually invisible as it goes on luxury cruises around the world.

Robotic 3D-printing will create a strong yet lightweight structure with a mesh framework integrating both the ship’s hull and superstructure.

The interior of the vessel follows a theme described as the “Tree of Life” – a living, breathing monument to mother nature. The ‘Tree of Life’ extends vertically through all four levels as the nucleus of the hydroponic garden to provide fresh food and air purification.

The yacht features a reflecting pool on the lower deck, an open beach club, and a master suite at the top level for the absolute luxury of guests.
