Inside “invisible” 290ft superyacht “Pegasus”, all mirrored glass with helipad and beach club
CLIMB aboard this secret sea oasis that prioritizes privacy and prosperity.
The extraordinary concept for the ‘invisible’ 290ft superyacht Pegasus was presented by innovative designer Jozeph Foakis.
The luxury ship would be made entirely of mirrored glass to ensure the super-rich could covertly sail the seven seas.
It would keep prying eyes from crashing the party while reflecting stunning views of the sea and sky.
Jozeph says his idea would set records as the world’s first 3D-printed ship that is “invisible in both design and environmental impact.”
The structure’s elegant and intricate lattice framework is visible through the glass at certain angles in different lighting conditions.
Pegasus would boast a number of eco-friendly features, which only adds to the appeal of the stunning concept.
Built-in solar panels would add another opportunity for reflection as lucky travelers can observe the sky, the clouds and every enviable place they pass.
Reflective solar wings are embedded in the glass of the superstructure, which supply the boat with solar-electric energy.
Jozeph claims they will work in harmony with a hydrogen hybrid source to create a green but glamorous way of travelling.
The Milan and New York based designer is on a mission to create a yacht that emits zero emissions – and wants everyone on board to be aware of that.
He chose to spread his environmentally conscious message across all aspects of Pegasus.
The centerpiece of the boat is an impressive multi-level ‘Tree of Life’ hydroponic garden, providing fresh food and air purification.
The base of the tree emerges from a reflecting pool on the lower deck and extends vertically through each floor.
Both an icon and a tribute to nature, the superyacht would be made using a robotic 3D printing machine.
The great technology would create the mesh framework for the whole ship with a strong and light structure.
This method also met Jozeph’s criteria as it consumes less energy, material, waste, space and time compared to traditional construction.
Inside, there are four levels to explore, with spacious lounges for relaxing, all connected by a sculptural spiral staircase.
The interior design revisits the reflective and mother nature theme, with bursts of living plants adorning the ship.
The magnificent master suite, equipped with a large private terrace, is located on the top floor.
Only the owner of Pegasus would be granted access, assuring VIPs that they have complete and absolute privacy.
At the front of the boat is the stunning pool club, which is wondrous in more ways than one.
It would offer an aquarium style tank with large horizontal windows that also have another practical quality.
They can be converted into open balconies on both port and starboard.
The pool itself also has a double function when the cover is closed, as it also serves as a helipad.
It would be challenged by an open beach club at the back of the Pegasus for the title of best party hot spot on board.
Guests could relax in the “oversized whirlpool” with fold-down balconies that also serve more than one purpose.
They can be converted into an enclosed solarium with sliding glass panels above the ceiling and down the stern bulkhead.
The sleek and space-saving design has already impressed super-rich superyacht enthusiasts, even if it doesn’t have a price tag yet.
Jozeph explained that his great concept came to him on a beach on the island of Koufonissi, Greece.
He said: “I was inspired to build a yacht as close as possible to the sea and nature, made up of clouds floating above the waterline.
“I wanted to honor nature by adapting to it and becoming practically invisible. Now is the time to take bold leaps towards our common sustainable future.
“Pegasus is a bold but achievable vision for the near future of the superyacht industry, where man and machine live in harmony with nature, rather than competing with or endangering it.”
Pegasus is currently being prepared to show to interested shipyards and could be in production by 2030.
