The Monaco Yacht Show is the world’s premier show for the rich an famous to choose their next toy. This year the show was held from 25 to 28 Sep 19. This is a super yacht show and displays only yachts which are more than 20m in length.
The Dutch design house Sinot Yacht and Architecture Design showcased a 6.5 feet detailed model of their next creation, a 367 feet (112 m) super yacht called the Aqua. Its claim to fame, other than the uber luxurious design is its propulsion system. The Aqua is propelled by a fuel cell propulsion plant using liquid hydrogen as the source of energy. The yacht stores Hydrogen in two 28 tonne vacuum sealed liquid hydrogen tanks at -253 Deg C (-423 Deg F). The only emission of this Super Yacht will be water.
These Hydrogen tanks have been made a center of attraction in the yacht by placing them behind a glass at the base of a spiraling staircase at the center of the yacht. The Aqua can carry 14 guests and 31 crew members across 3,750 nautical miles at a speed of 17 knots. It is full of all the amenities and luxuries expected by its rich owner and passengers. It has a cascading infinity pool installed in the rear deck. The design is inspired by waves at sea and there are deck to deckhead windows to provide a beautiful view of the sea or the coast. Decor is minimalist in Japanese tradition.
The Aqua has a master pavillion, two VIP staterooms, and four regular staterooms. There is more than sufficient space for lounging around on a lazy vacation. While a formal dinner can be held in the dining hall which can seat all fourteen passengers at a time. Once done with the food and wine, the rich occupants can burn their calories at the gym or while doing yoga. A hydro massage has also been included to soothe the jangled muscles.
Sinot understands that the wealthy love their toys. They have provided enough garage space to tuck in two 32 foot (9.7 m ) tenders and three jet skis.
