The Bloom Futuristic Superyacht Offers a Sustainable Sail

 - Dec 7, 2010
Netherlands-based designer Xiang Yu has conceived a futuristic mega luxury yacht, 'The Bloom,' that integrates sophisticated green technologies to offer a sustainable cruise.

'The Bloom' features a retractable wind/solar sail that powers the lighting system and electric motors of the yacht. Its vertical-axis windmill and solar fabric work as an additional source of energy. This mega yacht runs on a hybrid diesel electric motor system that gives a maximum speed of 20+ knots. All such features of 'The Bloom' ensure a smooth eco-sail.
