Bill Gates Spends $645 Million On This Eco-Friendly Yacht And The Interior Visuals Are Here (22 Pics)

The super-rich are known for their mind-boggling lavish yachts. Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman has reportedly splashed his cash on a $548M vessel named Serene. Meanwhile, Paul Allen built Octopus for $200M. Think of them as extravagant toys and status symbols for the lucky 1 percent of the population. Bill Gates (64), the founding father of Microsoft, recently made a purchase worth $645 million, proving that it’s not just a drop in the luxury ocean. In fact, Gates is the first to buy an eco-friendly mega-yacht that is run entirely on liquid hydrogen. Imagine – instead of terrifying greenhouse gases, it emits nothing but water! Plus, the futuristic yacht can travel 4000 miles before its two tanks have to be refilled. When the yacht was revealed for the first time in 2019, it was advertised as in need of a “forward-thinking owner.” What can we say? It’s a match!

The futuristic super-yacht run entirely on liquid hydrogen belongs to Bill Gates now that he has sealed the deal for $645 million. But Mr. Gates will have to be patient. The vessel will only be up and running by 2024.

The mega-yacht has an indoor health and wellness center that features a gym, an infinity pool, a hydro-massage room, and a yoga studio.

During the Monaco Yacht Show in 2019, designer Sander Sinot commented that “for development of Aqua, we took inspiration from the lifestyle of a discerning and forward-looking owner”.

Huge 28-ton liquid nitrogen tanks can be viewed through the glass panel in the middle. Every tank is sealed in a vacuum and cooled up to -423°F (-253°C).

I know what you’re thinking. Gates’ brand-new boat looks like a million dollars – it sounds like an understatement – but what the heck is this mysterious liquid named hydrogen? So, here it is. Liquid hydrogen has been used as a fuel in space technology for several years. It is light and has fewer potential risks when compared to compressed gas. What’s more, it’s getting trendy! The International Energy Agency announced that hydrogen “is today enjoying unprecedented momentum. The world should not miss this unique chance to make hydrogen an important part of our clean and secure energy future.” No wonder NASA calls it the fuel of choice for space exploration. We don’t want to sound rude but Ferdinand Magellan was missing out on this one.
