The Pegasus-88 is the first yacht to be fully 3D printed. The superyacht is designed to be energy independent. Saltwater is transformed into hydrogen that may be stored for a long time using solar energy. The hydrogen is converted by onboard fuel cells into electricity that is momentarily stored in lithium-ion batteries.
Jozeph was motivated to design a boat that was as natural and near to the sea as possible, built of clouds that floated above the waterline and were almost imperceptible.
In order to attain hitherto unheard-of levels of sustainability, range, and structural integrity, Forakis and his team at jozeph forakis... design orchestrated a symphony of chosen advanced technologies (existing and under development).
Robotic 3D printing is being used in the building of the 88-meter superyacht to produce a mesh framework that combines the hull and superstructure. In contrast to conventional building, the outcome is a structure that is incredibly robust and lightweight and can be built with less time, energy, waste, material, and space.
