Meet Project 821: The World's First Hydrogen-Powered Superyacht Sets Sail Towards a Cleaner Future

20 May 2024

Luxury goes green! Feadship, a renowned yacht builder, has unveiled Project 821, the world's first hydrogen fuel-cell superyacht.

This eco-friendly behemoth marks a revolutionary step towards sustainable yachting.

Hydrogen Power: Clean and Quiet Cruising

  • Project 821 Makes a Splash:  Say goodbye to noisy engines and polluting emissions! Project 821 runs on clean hydrogen, generating electricity and water vapor as the only byproducts.

  • Spacious but Storage Savvy:  While hydrogen is lightweight, storing it efficiently can be tricky. Feadship overcame this by integrating a custom four-meter tank, making the yacht slightly longer than originally planned.

Innovation Meets Efficiency: Power On Demand

  • Less is More:  Project 821 may store less energy compared to traditional diesel yachts. But its fuel cells constantly generate power while running, eliminating the need for massive battery storage.

  • Think Refillable Generator:  Imagine a yacht with a power plant that never runs out of fuel! That's the beauty of hydrogen fuel cells, providing continuous power for a smooth and silent cruise.

Luxury Redefined: Eco-Conscious Design

  • Heat Recycling: Reusing Every Watt:  Project 821 boasts a smart heat recycling system. Waste heat from the fuel cells gets repurposed to power amenities like pools, jacuzzis, and even the air conditioning system.

  • Coastal Chic Meets Sustainability:  The superyacht's interior, designed by RWD Studio, exudes a luxurious coastal vibe. Light and airy colors, coupled with natural materials like marble and eucalyptus wood, create a sense of openness and harmony with the surroundings.

A Yacht Fit for Royalty: Spacious Interiors and Unparalleled Comfort

  • A Private Paradise:  Project 821 is designed for family fun. The top deck features a luxurious apartment with two bedrooms, a gym, a pantry, offices, and a living room – all accessible via a private staircase.

  • Space for Everyone:  Wide hallways and expansive side decks ensure ample space for guests to move around comfortably and enjoy the breathtaking ocean views.

Project 821: A Technological Marvel and Trendsetter

  • Biggest in the Netherlands:  This eco-friendly giant surpasses its predecessor, Launchpad, to become the largest superyacht ever built in the Netherlands.

  • Five Floors of Luxury:  Project 821 boasts five floors above water and two below, with the owner's deck offering a staggering view, equivalent to being on a 12-story building!

Project 821 is more than just a superyacht; it's a symbol of innovation and a glimpse into the future of sustainable luxury transportation. This pioneering vessel paves the way for a cleaner and quieter future for yachting, all while offering unparalleled comfort and style.
