- A jaw-dropping 88m vessel dubbed the ‘Pegasus’ will become the world’s first 3D printed invisible superyacht.
A renowned Italian designer, Jozeph Forakis, has revealed his plans to create the world’s first 3D printed superyacht. To reflect the sky and sea, this superyacht will be outfitted with hidden reflective solar wings and constructed entirely of mirrored glass.
The Pegasus 88m yacht will be a true zero-emissions yacht that is invisible in both design and environmental impact.
The concept for this futuristic yacht was conceived on a beach on the Greek island of Koufonissi. Jozeph was inspired to design a yacht that was as close to the sea and nature as possible, made of clouds that floated above the waterline and became almost invisible.
With this concept in mind, Jozeph imagined the yacht and decided that it would be powered by a combination of hydrogen and solar-electric power from secret solar wings tucked away inside the yacht’s glass. He hopes to finish this project by 2030.
Forakis and his team at jozeph forakis design composed a symphony of selected advanced technologies (existing and in development) to achieve unprecedented levels of sustainability, range, and structural integrity.
“I was inspired to create a yacht as close to the sea and nature as possible, made of clouds floating above the waterline. I wanted to honour nature by blending into it, becoming virtually invisible. Now is the time for courageous leaps toward our collective sustainable future.”– Jozeph Forakis, a renowned Italian designer
Forakis hopes that his design will inspire innovative and environmentally friendly yacht designs in the future.
Forakis added, “Pegasus is a bold but achievable vision for the near future of the superyacht industry, where man and machine live in harmony with nature rather than competing or compromising it.”
3D Printed Superyacht
A mesh framework for the vessel will be created using a 3D printer, resulting in a lightweight yet strong structure that uses less time, waste, and energy than traditional construction. According to reports, the team will use robotic 3D printing to create a mesh framework that will integrate both the hull and the superstructure.
The multi-level “Tree of Life” – a living, breathing monument to mother nature and the nucleus of the hydroponic garden providing fresh food and air purification – is the centerpiece of the futuristic interior design.
The garden will be designed to wrap around a spiral staircase that connects the four levels, where guests will be able to access spacious lounges with 360-degree views of the seascape. The top deck features a 15-metre-long suite reserved for the owner, complete with a private terrace and floor-to-ceiling glass doors.
If guests want to unwind, the lower deck features a ‘Zen garden’ and a tranquil reflecting pool.
The yacht also has an open beach club that can be converted into a closed solarium for guests’ enjoyment.
