The Wind Rose Yacht Provides an Eco-Friendly Oceanic Escape

Solar-powered boats are nothing new, but I have yet to see a sun-fueled boat as lavish or large as the Wind Rose Yacht. The Wind Rose Yacht was conceived by Kaish B Davierwalla, Alessandro Bettoncelli, Gabriele Teruzzi and Gianluca Giordano for Filipetti Yachts.

The Wind Rose Yacht has solar panels mounted onto its roof that supply the boat with its power. The interior of this concept craft is luxurious and modern, with floor-to-ceiling windows adorning the bedrooms and futuristic furniture filling the living room. The size of this boat is massive, and if it is to be powered solely by the sun, it probably won't be able to move very fast. Still, you don't board a yacht to race other boats, and the floor-to-ceiling windows in the bedrooms should more than make up for the Wind Rose Yacht's lack of speed.
