This is an "Awesome" (understatement) Yacht! Nice place to "Set Out" pandemic if necessary? :confused:


Bill Gates commissions $645 MILLION 370-foot eco-friendly luxury superyacht powered by liquid hydrogen
that will let it travel nearly 4,000 miles before it needs to refuel

The world's second richest man has bought himself a futuristic superyacht that's powered entirely by liquid hydrogen - meaning its only emission is water.

Bill Gates is believed to have paid $645million in order to purchase Aqua, the plans of which were unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show last year.

The luxury liner is 370ft-long and comprises five decks complete with space for 14 guests, 31 crew members, a gym, yoga studio, beauty room, massage parlor and cascading pool on its rear deck.

But its most impressive feature is locked away in the hold - two 28-ton vacuum-sealed tanks that are cooled to -423F (-253C) and filled with liquid hydrogen which powers the ship.

Since when has liquid hydrogen been sufficiently renewably "Green"? Didn't Bill get the memo on acceptable energy sources? There's only two on the list!! Y'know what they say, If at first you don't succeed... '

Get it right. Build a superyacht powered solely by wind and solar. How hard can it be?
