This is Pegasus, a 288-foot superyacht designed in Italy by Jozeph Forakis and Lateral Naval Architects.

This yacht is the first of its kind, because it’s the world’s first 3D-printed yacht, and the world’s first ‘invisible yacht’.

According to Forakis, the goal was to make the 3D-printed yacht “virtually invisible”, both visually and metaphorically.

This unique effect is achieved using mirrored glass for the boat’s superstructure.

In other words, it’s an invisible yacht because it’s made of mirrors that reflect the surroundings.

The mirrored glass panels serve a dual purpose, too.

In addition to being, well, pretty cool to look at, they also incorporate transparent solar panels that power the electrolysers that convert seawater into hydrogen, which is what powers the yacht.

The interior is every bit as stylish and ‘green’, as the exterior.

At the center of the yacht, you’ll find a ‘Tree of Life’ that spans multiple levels.

The tree trunk starts on the lower deck, surrounded by a swimming pool and a zen garden, and it goes all the way up to the top deck.

A spiral staircase wraps around the tree trunk and it too, like the tree itself, covers all four levels.

And don’t let the extravagant and ‘sustainable’ design fool you into thinking this is not a proper luxury yacht.

You’ve got outdoor dining spaces, a sky deck with a convertible-style hard top, a wet bar, an open beach club with a Jacuzzi, and fold-down balconies for the suites.

Speaking of which, the owner’s suite is located on the top deck and it includes a private terrace.

Thanks to its hybrid solar-hydrogen propulsion system, Pegasus can travel at speeds of up to 18 knots (33 km/h), and it has a cruising speed of 12 knots – 22 km/h.

A price tag hasn’t been mentioned, but because of the avant-garde and innovative propulsion system, we reckon Pegasus will cost her owner at least eight figures.
