Super green 270ft superyacht run on wind and solar power with enough room for NIGHTCLUB unveiled
A super green 270ft superyacht run on wind and solar power with enough room for a NIGHTCLUB on board has been unveiled.
The luxury boat is only in the concept stage at the moment so the price is unknown.
It is designed by Netherlands-based yacht builder Feadship.
Dubbed ‘Dune’ - the vessel will run off wind and solar energy to reduce emissions.
The plans aim to reduce up to 95% of the potential negative environmental factors associated with operating a superyacht.
This figure is compared to a yacht meeting the current minimum environmental regulations.
The luxury vessel will feature overhangs to shade windows and reduce the energy required for cooling.
In an eco-conscious move, it also plans on getting rid of wooden teak decking.

This will be sealed in a transparent aliphatic polyurethane resin.
The engine room has been pushed towards the front of the ship – so guest can sleep closer to the pool deck, dining area and spa.
It has a private deck as well as a pavilion deck that offer great views.

Onboard power is planned to be generated from solid oxide fuel cells that use green methanol as a reaction agent.
It was showcased at the Monaco boat show 2023.
The price of the yacht is yet to be released but it is likely to
