The Invisible Superyacht Both Visually & Environmentally : The 3D-printed Pegasus

February 4, 2023
1 min read

The Pegasus superyacht, envisioned on the beaches of Koufonisia, Greece, will leave a minimal footprint on the environment while delivering a visually stunning experience. Its designer, Jozeph Forakis, has aimed to make the 88m vessel the first 3D-printed yacht, utilizing mirrored glass to seamlessly blend into its surroundings. The “invisible” design is also eco-friendly, with “Solar Wings” providing solar-electric power and a hydrogen hybrid source. The yacht’s glass superstructure doubles as transparent solar panels to extract hydrogen from seawater, which is then transformed into electricity by fuel cells and stored in Li-ion batteries for the engine and onboard systems.

The Pegasus superyacht’s commitment to zero emissions extends to its innovative “Tree of Life” hydroponic garden, providing fresh produce and cleaning the air. The interior boasts four levels connected by a stunning spiral staircase, with a minimalist guest lounge that seamlessly blends indoor greenery with breathtaking panoramic views. The owner’s level features a private forward-facing master suite with a terrace, while the forward pool club offers a unique aquarium-style lap pool and convertible horizontal windows that double as balconies. The yacht also has an open beach club with an oversized jacuzzi and fold-down balconies that can be converted into an enclosed solarium with sliding glass panels. Additionally, the pool cover doubles as a helipad.

The Pegasus superyacht will be a feat of cutting-edge technology, using robotic 3D printing to build a seamless mesh framework that encompasses both the hull and superstructure. This innovative approach results in a structure that is not only incredibly strong and lightweight but also more environmentally friendly, using less energy, materials, waste, and time during production. The yacht’s concept was born on the beaches of Koufonisia, Greece, where its designer, Jozeph Forakis, was inspired to create a vessel that pays homage to nature by blending in and appearing nearly invisible. He envisioned a yacht that floats above the waterline like clouds, with a design that is as close to the sea and its surroundings as possible.
