Vripack has unveiled the new renderings for an 88-metre eco-friendly superyacht concept, Utopia at Sea. The Dutch studio developed the design from a brainstorming session about the environmental problems relating to yachts and more importantly the waste they create. Utopia at Sea has been designed to leave a small environmental footprint that is as harmless and as faint as that left by a human walking along a sandy beach.

Utopia at Sea uses a nature-inspired air purifier that separates oxygen from carbon to create a design that revolves around a reduced environmental impact. “We connected our award winning diesel-electric propulsion system to 4 nature-inspired air purifying units and visibly attached the entire system to an on-board park providing it with clean air.” said Vripack’s senior designer Robin de Vries. This allows researchers to observe the operations from an on-board control room while guests can engage with the onboard park that is flooded with clean air.

Utopia at Sea is able to sleep up to 15 guests as well as a crew of 14. A large helipad is located on the aft with a sundeck jacuzzi and a main deck pool with optional shading. Her tender storage area can also double up as a mini basketball court.

Utopia at Sea comes after the announcement of Vripack’s 45-metre superyacht concept Krista in March. “We’re entering a period of radical transformation in which technology has the potential to significantly raise the basic standards of every man, woman and child on the planet.” says Peter H. Diamandis, founder of the XPRIZE Foundation

Utopia at Sea will be powered by twin Caterpillar engines that will provide her with a top speed of 16 knots and a comfortable cruising speed of 12.5 knots.
