December 31, 2019 |

In Monaco, Interesting Engineering has reported that the world’s first hydrogen-powered superyacht was unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show. Capable of reaching a speed of 17 knots, the 367-foot yacht showcased not only its luxurious interior, but also it’s engineering feats, where the advertised total range of the yacht was an astounding 3,750 nautical miles. The ship, named Aqua, will run on liquid hydrogen and fuel cells, where the hydrogen will be stored using two 28-ton vacuum-sealed tanks of liquid hydrogen maintained at -423 degrees Fahrenheit. The tanks will be visible through a glass panel at the center of the vessel. The lead designer of the yacht stated that their main “challenge was to implement  fully operational liquid hydrogen and fuel cells in a true superyacht that is not only groundbreaking in technology but also in design and aesthetics.”
