The world’s second richest guy has bought himself a futuristic super yacht that’s powered totally with the aid of liquid hydrogen – meaning its only emission is water.
Bill Gates is assumed to have paid $645 million in order to purchase Aqua, the plans of which had been unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show remaining year.
The luxurious liner is 370 ft-lengthy and comprises 5 decks complete with space for 14 guests, 31 team members, a gym, yoga studio, beauty room, rub down parlor and cascading pool on its rear deck.
The super yacht most impressive characteristic is locked away in the hold – 28-ton vacuum-sealed tanks which are cooled to -423F (-253C) and full of liquid hydrogen which powers the ship.
Gates, 64, is thought to often take vacations on board super yachts, but that is the primary time he has offered one. In the beyond he would usually rent boats at some stage in summer journeys to the Mediterranean.
