HUF 60 billion for an extremely smart superyacht that also protects the environment

In our article about giga yachts, we looked into the exotic world of huge private luxury yachts. And this world continues to expand, and there is no stopping either in terms of dimensions or the technology used. Buyers increasingly like constructions with “green” solutions, which are of course ridiculous beauty patches for a ship of this volume, but they can be well baked during on-board storytelling.

One of the new representatives of this style is the environmentally conscious and smart Artefact, designed for BlackBerry owner Mike Lazaridis. The spectacular yacht combines one of today’s most advanced hybrid technologies with a modern, sophisticated design.

Artefact’s style, built from characteristic geometric shapes, is noticeable from afar, making it easy to identify for boating enthusiasts. Two renowned designers, Gregory C. Marshall and Reymond Langton, were responsible for the creation of the design without right angles.

The ship boasts 740 square meters of curved glass walls that weigh almost 60 tons, and glass is clearly the focus of the Artefact. It is also clear from the outside that floor-to-ceiling glass surfaces have been installed in some parts of the cabins, which is unprecedented in the world of yachts.

But what makes this boat one of the smartest in the world is the hybrid propulsion system. Thanks to a large 610 kWh battery pack and solar panels, this 80-meter-long yacht can operate for long periods without using internal combustion engines. The manufacturer shyly did not provide information about the exact duration, but it is known that its consumption is 20-30 percent lower than that of similar ships operated exclusively with diesel engines.

At the same time, it protects the marine life of the seabed. In addition to the diesel-electric Azipod drive developed by ABB, the Artefact also has a dynamic positioning function, which means that it can maintain its position without dropping an anchor, so that those living on the bottom do not get several tons of iron cats around their necks. In addition, thanks to its unique six-bladed propellers, the Artefact glides almost silently in cruising mode.

The interior, of course, has everything you can imagine
