Gallery: Pierrejean’s Solar-Powered LOU+LOU Yacht Cruises the Seven Sea...


A new yacht designed by Pierrejean Design Studios is taking green technology to the high seas. The LOU+LOU uses solar panels and a hybrid technology called “electrical motorization pools” to cruise completely silently up to 8 knots with a top speed of 25 knots. The technology is still in the experimental stage and is under wraps for now, but we love the idea that a yacht designer would create their own green technology for a custom craft like this one.

The LOU+LOU focuses on relaxation and tranquility inspired by nature: the five-deck boat is designed to be a floating spa that can endure a wide range of climates – from the hot Persian Gulf to cold northern temperatures. Other details we love include an aquarium integrated into the swimming pool and large underwater windows that link passengers directly to the sea itself.

    How many seas are there really? The International Hydrographic Organization lists over 100. And different cultures historically depicted the seas they would most likely cross. After the European discovery of America, some people used the term “Seven Seas” to refer to seven of the largest bodies of water in the world: The Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, the Indian Ocean, the Arctic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, the Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico.
