The Zero Sail concept provides a more realistic design for an eco-yacht. By re-defining the yacht, the Zero Sail concept steps away from the typical decadent vibe that is often associated with these designs. Instead, it focuses on being more eco-friendly and budget aware. Although that might not please the elite, it will certainly be well-received by numerous individuals.

Conceived by Germany-based designer Thor Unbescheid, the Zero Sail eco-yacht is made out of an aluminum space frame that has been covered with high-tensile polycarbonate, which is very similar to how cars are built. These materials a completely recyclable. Instead of relying on solar and electric power, the Zero Sail concept incorporates wind technology in its sails, which also give it a sleek and sporty look.
