Birdview concept Blue Angel by Diana Yacht Design

Next-Generation yachting starts here.

Blue Angel is a brand new concept 36-metres ecological yacht, created in collaboration with the Belgium company Exmar Yachting, with hydrogen propulsion providing the yacht’s power. With this hydrogen providing 100% of the power at shorter ranges, the yacht is designed to use hybrid electric power at longer ranges. This intelligent hybrid system consists of two hydrogren fuel cells modules that work in combination with redundant diesel generators.

The idea behind the eco-friendly yacht is based on a modern family who are looking to make the most of their leisure time and enjoy a luxury lifestyle but who care deeply about the environment. We wanted to create a family yacht with a masculine and powerful exterior design. Her exterior lines are accentuated by the forward-placed superstructure, giving her an explorer look. The combination of a vertical bow and smooth lines, gives the yacht’s overall appearance a striking, but not overly aggressive, look. The large windows create an interior that is light and airy and brings the feeling of the outside in. By using sustainable materials and well-chosen furniture, we are trying to leave the smallest carbon footprint possible.

The layout

Casper Marelis, the designer, got his inspiration by studying the car industry and its evolvement towards greener solutions. “You notice that all of the first models have been more extreme in order to gain people’s attention and therefore Blue Angel also had to be something extreme which really catches your eye.” 

Blue Angel is designed to be a real family home on the seas, all of the luxury cabins can be found together on the main deck – an unusual feature for a yacht of this size. The design of Blue Angel is defined by its open and spacious decks complemented by large windows. Her exterior lines are accentuated by the forward-placed superstructure, giving her an explorer look, and two-tone colour scheme.

In terms of her layout, a full-beam owner’s cabin, one double and one twin stateroom can be found on the main deck. On the lower deck, there is an extra guest cabin which can be transformed into a TV/games room. Up to seven crew members can be accommodated for on board Blue Angel and make the most of her large galley and crew mess.

The upper deck lounge can be opened up to create a large aft space which overlooks the lower deck activities and watersports. This generously-spaced aft deck is the ideal place to hang out by the sea. When all of the tenders and toys are offloaded, this large open space can be turned into a lounging area, an outside dining area, a sports deck or even a movie theatre. Inside, you can find a full-beam lounge with floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as a coffee corner and a large dining table.

Going up to the bridge deck, there is a large lounge with an openable aft wall to create the ultimate beach house feeling, as well as an outside lounging area with sofas and Portuguese beds. The interior design of Blue Angel is both spacious and modern, creating a relaxed and open feeling for her onboard guests.

Getting technical

100% Hydrogen short range yacht, Hydrogen Electric for long range use.

Blue Angel is equipped to run on Hydrogen as a sole fuel at cruising speed and hotel loads, up to 18 hours, using fuel cell modules. This allows cruising with zero emissions without the vibration and noise pollution of direct drive propulsion engines or generators. She has electric Azimuth pods which amongst many other advantages, is an intelligent use of space and gives the yacht great flexibility.
The yacht carries hydrogen, in safe cylindrical tanks and using a distribution and monitoring system which has been extensively tested, used in pilot project, with class approval. The intelligent hybrid system consists of two hydrogen fuel cell modules, combined with redundant diesel generators, this can be used as range extender or increasing the transit speed to fit the owner’s needs.

Xavier Ex, (co) creator of Blue Angel: “When Blue Angel is running on hydrogen as its sole fuel, this allows for silent and clean cruising with zero emissions. These fuel cells are completely silent, vibration, smoke and smell free. This means you will no longer need to run any generators during your normal day-trips or whilst at anchor. This means that the onboard experience is much more quieter and therefore more enjoyable.”
