This Eco-Friendly Superyacht Is Entirely Powered By A Hydrogen-Electric System

This superyacht is entirely powered by hydrogen for all its onboard energy needs.

Meet “Aqua,” the world’s first fully hydrogen superyacht, where sustainability meets elegance. The 112-meter-long boat uses one of the cleanest fuels, liquid hydrogen, stored in two 28-ton vacuum isolated tanks at extremely low temperatures (-253 ° C or -423.4° F.)



The hydrogen is converted into electrical energy by the proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells and produces no greenhouse gases. The only by-product of the process is water with no carbon emissions. This fully powers up the entire boat’s electrical system and propulsion.

Designed by the Dutch company Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design, the vessel was presented at the 2019 Monaco Yacht Show. It accommodates 14 guests and 31 crew members over a five-deck plan that includes a gym, infinity pool, lounge, staterooms, master pavilion, heliport and many other facilities.

Aqua will have a speed of 17 knots (about 31 km/h) with a range of 3,750 nautical miles. The 56 tonnes hydrogen will allow the superyacht to cruise from London to New York in one go. The proposed launch of the vessel is 2024 and it will be at the forefront of its superyacht peers.
