Written by

The latest superyacht concept from yacht designer Max Zhivov is the following 47 metre project. Named Sky Ya, Zhivov describes her as a semi-displacement hybrid motor yacht, combining modern yacht design with the latest solar energy technology to produce a vessel with an obvious environmental consciousness.

Solar panels are ideally located as to soak up the most of the sun's rays. Additional ecologically themed features include a unique garden feature, where owner and guest can enjoy a green, natural space even when hundreds of miles out to sea.

Amongst her other notable features is the use of glass in her main salon, with full height windows allowing guests to enjoy spectacular sea views as well as flood the interior with natural light. A crew of 10 will be accommodated for on board, and she is expected to achieve a cruising speed of 18 knots.

This is the second superyacht design from Zhivov in recent weeks with a definite focus on sustainability and energy saving technologies. You can check out the 60 metre concept Sun Catcher here.
