Bill Gates has just bought the world’s first hydrogen-powered superyacht ship that is worth around $644m (N233,772,000,000) which has a large pool, helipad, spa, and gym.
The Guardian reports that the Microsoft co-founder commissioned the ship, a-112-meter long vessel that is powered by hydrogen.
It should be noted that the ship was designed by a Dutch, Sander Sinot, and showcased at the Monaco yacht show in 2019.
In describing the show last year, Sander said the inspiration behind the ship’s design was taken from the fluidity of water and the lifestyle of a forward-looking owner.
Another thing worthy of note is that the ship will not be hitting the seas before 2024. Whenever it does, the ship will travel 3,750 miles before it stops for a refuel.
Added to that, the ship will be running 20mph. The aqua-machine also has a diesel back up because there is presently a scarcity of hydrogen refuelling stations.
