A greenhouse on your yacht

3deluxe recently unveiled a new superyacht concept at the Monaco Yacht Show that looks to be a gardener’s dream. The design, known as VY.01, is practically a floating garden fit for the high seas. The vessel comes complete with a greenhouse and vegetable garden that allows budding green thumbs to cultivate their own produce on board. 

The superyacht itself appears to be just as green as the plant life, being equipped with a hydrogen fuel cell system and electric propulsion for cruising sans CO2 emissions, noise, and vibrations. The streamlined silhouette, meanwhile, ensures minimal resistance to the wind and waves for greater efficiency and seakeeping. Elsewhere, the vessel sports rooftop solar panels to generate clean energy for things like the seawater desalination system that provides additional water needed for the plants.

The eco-friendly ethos even extends to construction. According to 3deluxe, the materials could be supplied by a selection of pioneering steel and aluminum manufacturers in Norway and Germany, who use renewable energy throughout production to reduce emissions.
