Earth300, championed by their CEO Aaron Olivera, is the first vessel to be powered by this innovative new technology.Photo: Iddes YachtsThe vessel has capacity to accommodate 160 scientists, 20 resident experts, 40 VIP guests and 20 students, as well as 160 crew members. Those aboard will be focused on pushing the scientific study of the world’s oceans to the limits, with the vessel complete with quantum computer technology and Artificial Intelligence.Photo: Iddes YachtsWith support from a number of international partners including IBM, RINA, Triton Submarines and EYOS Expeditions, the projected launched date is set for 2025, with the preliminary design and naval engineering already complete.
