A Look At The World's First Hydrogen-Powered Super Yacht - Photos


Dutch company Sinot has unveiled the world’s first hydrogen-powered superyacht at the Monaco yacht show. the concept, called ‘aqua’, is a 376-foot-long (112-m) long and would run entirely on liquid hydrogen.

Aqua’s power is fueled by liquified hydrogen, stored at extremely low temperatures, in two 28-ton, vacuum-isolated tanks. A spiral staircase in the centre of the boat leads to the bottom deck where these monoliths sit behind strengthened glass, designed to keep the liquid hydrogen stable at -253° c (-423.4° f).

The five-deck superyacht would accommodate 14 guests and 31 crew members. It would offer a range of 3,750 nautical miles (4,315 mi, 6,945 km) and can reach a top speed of 17 knots (20 mph, 31 km/h). On full fuel, it could cruise at 10-12 knots for some 3,750 nautical miles.


The liquified hydrogen is converted into electrical energy by proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells, with water being the only by-product. These tanks can split off power at up to 4 MW, powering two 1-MW electric propulsion motors and two 300-kW bow thrusters for tighter manoeuvring. A 1.5-MWh battery pack acts as a buffer, providing instant access to power and running the ship’s electrics, and is charged as necessary by the fuel cell.

The superyacht would also have an expansive indoor health and wellness centre featuring a gym, a hydro-massage room, and a yoga studio. There are also indoor-outdoor entertaining spaces with a formal dining area that seats 14.

At the front of the yacht, a ‘bow observatory’ accommodates two people who can enjoy views of the horizon through giant windows. Other design features include Japanese-influenced interiors, an optional helipad, where a hydrogen-powered EVTOL can drop-off guests, and a mini-waterfall that cascades down from the deck pool over stone steps. meanwhile, the exterior look of the yacht is inspired by ocean swells, featuring a sculpted hull intersected by glass windows.
