Legendary car designer Henrik Fisker created a $37 million luxury yacht lined with solar panels

According to Insider, Henri Fisker collaborated with custom yacht fashioner Benetti to make a superyacht with solar panels





Fisker told Tech Insider he decided to design the yacht over "a nice glass of rosé" with representatives from Benetti who were "looking for someone to come in and think out of the box."


"It was exciting to get into a project that, in one way, is so different and, on other hand, is still a product that moves people and entertains people," Fisker said. "Yes, it's on the ocean and doesn't have wheels, but I found it intriguing and exciting to do and it's been an amazing experience."


The yacht has a huge family room that can fit 12 individuals with floor-to-roof glass dividers and a bar confronting the sea.

Travelers can flick a switch and the bar will lower and extend to wind up a lounge area table. The bar seats will bring down too so you can sit at the table for a supper.





The yacht itself has carbon fiber accents to make it more streamlined. The outside is made of recovered wood and has shrouded surrounding lighting for evening time.


Sunlight based boards incorporated in the body of the yacht and on the deck store power amid the day to control the surrounding lighting for night.


The yacht was planned in California and will be implicit the seaside Italian city of Livorno. Fisker said he would like to get it available by 2018.
