$500,000,000 yacht
« on: February 10, 2020, 06:10:25 AM »

Bill Gates has ordered a superyacht, that he won't take possession of until the year 2024.   The yacht, designed by Dutch company Sinot, will be 112 metres long and run on liquid hydrogen.
It will feature an infinity pool, helipad and spa and will have room for up to 14 guests.

Thanks Brian......as I view the said vessel on my Microsoft Windows 10 system PC, also packed with numerous Microsoft additional software, I consider myself a minor shareholder to have helped fund it  >:-o


I wonder if Melinda will Skipper the yacht?  {-)

It reminds me of the Seaview.
Only that it is a surface runner.

It would appear not...  https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-51446663
Bill Gates is not known for being daft with money. If he can lower himself to borrowing a cheap (as in a mere $300M) superyacht for his holibobs off Sardinia then why would he want or need to buy his own?
Fake news again?

Not to worry , I dont think they'll be painting the bodies with shellac (that's what caused the 'boom', static ignited it, the Hydrogen just finished it off ). . .
Tho' the thought of pressurized gas tanks does seem a problem .
BUT Hydrogen  gas is not 'green' in any way, the process of extracting it is a  dirty  and dangerous task , I used to do contract work in a salt/salination plant and Hydrogen was extracted there ,I was glad to be away from there intact . . .

All it needs is a spark.
I can just imagine the repair man saying "I'll just have a quick fag"
