A follow-up to the Miami vessel, Florida-based Norwegian designer Kurt Strand introduces another superyacht inspired by the Sunshine State. The 525-footer replaces traditional cloth sails with ones made from space-age technology. Its 80-meter tall wing masts are crafted from carbon fiber and hold electro-hydraulic telescopic retractable sails. Each one is covered in solar panels and allows the boat to "solar sail" when the winds die down. Once they pick back up, the vessel will sail off the wind, and the energy from the sun will be stored in a battery bank. If there's ever no wind or sun, you're not out of luck. The yacht can be powered by hydrogen fuel power cells.
