Berlin-based design firm T. Fotiadis has announced the launch of its latest design, the Ultra2 yacht. Coming in at 95-metres, this hybrid yacht concept promises to be both sustainable and hardy enough to reach remote destinations. Photo: T.

Privacy and security is a top priority for the Ultra2 designers.Photo: T.

The superyacht is driven by the all-electric Azipod propulsion system and is powered by hybrid diesel-electric motors. Methanol fuel cells operate continuously to keep the puffer batteries charged during activities such as port operations and low-speed cruising to ensure there is always enough energy for both the electric motors and yacht’s systems.Photo: T.
