Life on the sea has always been looked at as a trip, vacation, or long-term excursion, and it barely ever comes close to being anything more permanent. Multidisciplinary design practice 3deluxe ‘VY.01’, a zero-carbon superyacht, holds incredible potential to change how one perceives yachts and their usage. From being just another addition to your supercars and OTT expenses, the ‘VY. 01’proposes a new way of living and traveling. Call it a gardener’s dream (a very rich gardener) or a billionaire with green thumbs paradise; it will offer some novel ways to make the vessel self-sustaining with its nature-oriented philosophy.
The superyacht will offer common areas like several lounge and living spaces, a kitchen, a bar, a saltwater pool, and a small marina with direct access to the sea. There are also some very advantageous ones like a greenhouse and vegetable garden. Create an unlimited supply of the freshest produce of land by cultivating it on-board. Combined with the fresh fish of the ocean, you have a Michelin-star chef in the making right there!
