  1. 96-meter Hydrogen-Powered Superyacht 'ZeRo'
    While the overall exterior design may illicit recent memory of at least two current sea-going superyacht designs -namely "A" and "Excellence", what is found in the mechanical spaces and technical areas is what is more interesting...in theory. Project 'ZeRo' is a brand new design unveiled at the current Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) by Sorgiovanni Designs. The 96-meter yacht is envisioned to be hydrogen powered leaving no major emissions.
  2. The propulsion system derives its power from utilizing hydrogen tanks, hydrogen fuel cells and electric engines along with a battery storage system. Combined with a hull form that is both stable and efficient, ZeRO enables high speed cruising combined with extended range at cruise speed. This is not the first attempt at either talking about or even attempting to build a fuel-cell/hydrogen yacht. In fact, Lurssen admits to presently working on a future superyacht with this technology.
  3. Sorgiovanni Designs in particular Sam Sorgiovanni is 'stirring the pot' with this new design. "My vision for ZeRO was to create a futuristic, wholistic form while maintaining a timeless elegance with the hull embracing the superstructure to create a striking yet sleek hull form and restrained superstructure", said Sorgiovanni. The yacht in its design is very sculptural and flows most of the exterior deck space towards the aft end of the vessel on each deck. They are also looking into the the future with the type of craft carried onboard, instead of the traditional helicopter, there is an eVTOL.
