The Pangeos Terayacht is a massive floating city designed to house a population of 60,000. Its unique turtle-like shape, measuring 1,800 feet, is a nod to the prehistoric supercontinent of Pangea. In terms of seafaring transportation, it's a behemoth.
The Pangeos is supported by 30,000 individual cells and propelled by nine powerful engines, each boasting 16,800 horsepower. These engines are powered entirely by solar panels, making it an eco-friendly means of transportation with zero emissions. It can move at a top speed of five knots and also can capture energy from waves and wind.
The living quarters on the Pangeos consist of a mix of villas and apartments, and there are several recreational amenities, including a mall, gardens, pools, and a beach club. The vessel also has facilities for tenders, helicopters, and hangers, making transportation to and from the ship a breeze.
Constructing this enormous floating city would require an equally massive shipyard. According to its designer, Lazzarini, it would take eight years and cost $8 billion to complete the project.
