Too Design’s VisionE superyacht concept is futuristic as it is eco-friendly
The VisionE superyacht concept by Too Design throws a few curveballs your way. For example, the modest 186-footer (57-meter) superyacht hides a plethora of intriguing features that are only revealed upon a closer look.
Studio Too Design, led by renowned designer Marco Casali, has unveiled their newest vessel in the VisionE superyacht concept, which is an eco-friendly beauty. With the goal of promoting a more environmentally friendly way of life and sailing, there is a bright future ahead in yachting.
At first glance, most noticeable is the included pool on the lower deck where swimmers may enjoy the sea views. However on a second take, you’ll notice that the entire upper deck is covered in solar panels. The retractable solar roof of VisionE superyacht concept lifts up to show a spacious 1,600-square-foot sun deck with a spa pool, dining area, and lounge.
The roof’s solar panels can capture up to 62 kW of solar energy, which is then stored in the yacht’s enormous battery pack and utilized to power it. The VisionE superyacht can then be powered by this battery, a hybrid diesel-electric system that can propel it to speeds of up to 14 knots and may eventually run entirely on clean, green electricity or hydrogen. The sleek aluminum hull and a sharp bow are intended to reduce drag and boost efficiency.
Each of the VisionE’s seven staterooms has a balcony that automatically folds down to provide direct and private access to the ocean for the 14 passenger capacity. In addition, a part of the aft bulwarks has been engineered to form a saltwater swimming pool, a basketball court, or an outdoor cinema. Even the flybridge is equipped with a large jacuzzi, bar, and dining table.
