Half Submarine/Half Superyacht: Another Whale in the Sea
Whales seem to be having a large influence over marine design lately. First the Whale-inspired Oculus and now Johnathan Owen Pearson’s Luxury Submarine. This 144ft half sub, half superyacht allows for comfort while veiwing coral reefs, shipwrecks and any kind of under-water life while trying to blend in. The whale-like submarine/yacht is propelled by two hydrogen fuel cell-powered pump jets an effort to make it eco-friendly. No word on price as the design is still only a concept from JopDesign, which also concepts luxury kitchen designs, salad servers, lighting aparatuses, etc. More pictures of the whale-like sub-yacht after the jump.
