A yacht – Designed to save energy

Feadship comes up trumps with a new concept superyacht every year, and this year’s Breathe design doesn’t fail on the sleek good looks the Dutch company has become known for. Supposedly inspired by zebras, it may be lacking in black and white stripes but it’s the cooling system which has made it from beast to machine. The hulls are lighter, with funnels darker, to flow the air through the decks, cooling passengers down.

 

 

Glass shells also act as insulation, cooling the insides while generating energy from the sun at the same time.
