Project PJ-801 as she is technically known, is the design work of Nuvolari Lenard in Italy with Rolls Royce Marine having worked on the project to deliver an innovative drive system when the project was conceived back in 2009. With her polar class hull, PJ World is intended to cruise the globe with complete autonomy, supported by complex self-sustaining systems on board that would make her a true explorer yacht.
