Bill Gates' purchased a $644m hydrogen superyacht
An infinity pool, helipad, spa and gym - this are just a few snapshots of what is supposed to be the world’s first hydrogen-powered superyacht, estimated at around $644m, according to the Dutch design firm Sinot.
Bill gates, whose estimated worth is predicted around $112 billion according to estimates by Forbes, spent a whooping amount of cash in order to build an environmentally friendly vessel modeled after its “Aqua” concept that was showcased at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2019.
Apart from the infinity pool and helipad, there are numerous outdoor lounges, a giant spiral staircase and an amazing observation room at the front.
Apparently, the main motivation to buy the yacht was be to signal his backing for new, clean technology to cut carbon emissions.
However, it is hard to see how other billionaires, such as Roman Abramovich, Alisher Usmanov and others, knows for their expensive yachts, will follow Bill Gates trend of green energy.
