The Acionna megayacht is what dreams are made of…a billionaire’s dream. The question, do billionaires yearn for anything just got answered in the form of a 175-meter (574-foot) vessel by Andy Waugh Yacht Design. The almost 575 feet yacht is massive. To better understand its largeness, comparing it to nearly two football fields in length would be fair. A space that huge sure will have more than just some magnanimously-sized suites, pools, and lounges.
The designers realize a space this enormous demands the presence of some larger-than-life amenities, which is why the Acionna could accommodate a full-size squash court, a helicopter hangar, or a 60-feet indoor pool. The possibilities are truly endless when the conceptual ship includes eight decks; at the center of it all is a grand, double-height main saloon with glass windows overlooking the main aft deck pool with cascading waterfalls. Social space has been created known as ‘the island’ where guests will find a lounge and dining areas and two bars to unwind.
The vast pool highlights this area. The pool area is accessed via a tunnel aft and a bridge to make things exciting and playful. In addition to the indoor pool, there will be spa services, a tender garage, and also a supercar garage, because why not? Ultimately, it all depends on what the super-rich owner of the megayacht desires. Waugh shared with boat international, “Acionna is the ultimate world cruising megayacht and challenges many of the preconceptions about larger yachts. Her avant-garde styling is a feast-for-the-eyes from every angle, exaggerated by her elegant proportions and sheer scale.” As intimidating as Acionna may seem, it is designed for long-distance cruising with zero impact on the environment.
Ensuring this is a hydrogen propulsion system that replaces battery-powered electric systems. Waugh adds, “The concept is for those who see themselves as trendsetters and game changers, those who appreciate the zenith of luxury but also want to have a positive impact.
