Daily Pampering: Superyachts of the future

What makes a superyacht super? It’s not just size that matters with these boats. The superyachts of the future are going green, according to the latest designs from Zero to Nine Design.

The eco-friendly superyacht 006 is a 43-meter (141-feet) concept yacht that boasts a fitted hardtop with photovoltaic cells capable of generating up to 20kW. Instead of using that power to for the sauna or the Jacuzzi, the yacht stores the additional power in dedicated 400-kWh battery packs for use while entering or exiting marinas or when shipping through protected and uncontaminated areas at low speed. The superyacht will have three diesel generators installed which will help optimize fuel consumption.

As for the asethics of this ship? The yacht design shows a twin-deck owner area, three crew cabins on the lower deck, one crew cabin on main deck and a captain’s cabin on the upper deck. The guest cabins have been designed to accommodate up to six people in three cabins. Not a bad way to spend time at sea.
