Virtually invisible, the Jozeph Forakis Pegasus superyacht concept is simply mesmerizing
The new Jozeph Forakis Pegasus superyacht concept has just been unveiled and it’s one of the most beautiful yacht designs we’ve come across. Featuring “Solar Wings”, the yacht’s solar panels will be able to convert seawater into hydrogen, resulting in clean, green power.
Forakis’ design team envisioned a yacht “made of clouds floating above the waterline.” The idea was built around the desire for invisibility, and honoring the qualities of nature by blending into it. At first glance, the Jozeph Forakis Pegasus superyacht concept is the most beautiful dream, but it’s expected to become a reality by 2030.
Using a 3D-printed mesh framework, the Pegasus’ striking appearance features a low, linear hull with a plumb bow and a metallic finish that blends in with the colors of the ocean. The superstructure is supported by a base at the water’s edge and has multi-tiered solar wings that reflect the sky and clouds.
As part of the ship’s solar-electric functionality, saltwater is converted into hydrogen, which is then kept for extended periods of time. Onboard fuel cells then turn the hydrogen into electricity and temporarily stored in lithium ion batteries. When fully operational, the Pegasus will emit no carbon dioxide and have a practically limitless range.
The multi-level “Tree of Life” monument, which extends across all four floors, is another feature that serves as the centerpiece of the yacht. The tree is surrounded by a wellness zen garden and reflective pool, all of which are encircled by a sculptured spiral stairway that reflects Forakis’s goal to connect with nature. Onboard fresh food and air purification will both be provided by a sustainable hydroponic garden.
The owner of the superyacht will have exclusive access to the top level of the Pegasus, which has a private suite and terrace. Large horizontal windows can be found in the forward pool club, which contains an aquarium-style lap pool. The pool cover also serves as a helipad. In the back of the ship, the open beach club has a large Jacuzzi and collapsible terraces.
With the benefits of 3D printing, the 88-meter Jozeph Forakis Pegasus superyacht concept is a lightweight vessel that will be created using less energy, materials, and time when compared to traditional building methods.
