Van Geest Design’s Domus, named after the single-story homes found in ancient Rome, is essentially a solar-electric trimaran that has the space of a catamaran, but with superyacht luxuries. At 130-feet, it features an interior that spans nearly 8,500-square-feet and consists of an interior split between two decks, including six guest cabins as well as two owner’s suites.
The studio claims that it’s “the first truly zero-emission yacht over 750 gross tonnes,” thanks to its solar power, hydro-regeneration powerplant that works in conjunction with hydrogen fuel cells for near unlimited range. It’s capable of generating, storing and running off solar energy during the day before switching over to the battery system at dusk, while a sail keeps things moving on windy days.

We believe that from 40m upwards, if you want to enjoy the benefits of a multihull, the only practical solution is a trimaran. The research undertaken on multihull superyacht sizes between 80/90m and 40/50m clearly proves this. Just because superyachts are what they are now, does not mean they should stay this way. We truly believe that this project will redefine what a multi-hull sailing superyacht can be,” said Van Geest Design.
