Where is the $700 million Tesla superyacht?

Remember the $700 million Tesla superyacht? 

It was first teased all the way back in 2017 and momentum has been steadily building ever since. 

But it’s now 2022, so where is it?

The Model Y yacht will be completely electric, making it silent on the water. 

It will also rely on solar and hydroelectric power. 

So what else gives this yacht its $700 million price tag? 

The Model Y will be 40 meters (131 foot) long with two decks, two bedrooms and a jacuzzi. 

The lower deck will have tables that can turn into seats with the touch of a button.

The top deck will have a bar and dancing area, covered by a massive roof with hundreds of LED lights that glow at night. 

Inside, the yacht will have a circular bar, a lounge suite and two beds. 

But what truly sets this yacht apart is its electric engine and self-sustaining capabilities. 

At the very top of the ship will be a solar panel that charges two lithium batteries. 

It will also have a turbine that works to turn waves into energy. 

Designer Dhruv Prasad created renders of the yacht in 2017 and touted it as Tesla’s next big thing.

But Tesla CEO Elon Musk has reportedly had nothing to do with the project and has never publicly backed it.

While there’s no official information coming from Tesla, nor a release date, fans desperately hope the project will be backed by the company and come to life. 

And surely if Musk can successfully send rockets into space and make eerily real humanoid robots, he can make Model Y happen. 

Although Prasad might have to rethink the $700 million price tag, otherwise Musk might be the only person actually able to afford it.
