Nuclear megayacht Earth 300 emerges to save the world

The superyacht Earth 300 arrives as the ultimate symbol of wealth.


It has seen a dramatic surge in demand during the pandemic, as the ultra-rich yearned for privacy and social distancing in its most luxurious, exclusive form.



Orders flowed in, adding to a rising global fleet of thousands of superyachts loosely defined as luxury boats at least 80 feet in length and professionally crewed.

Large superyachts have a disproportionately negative impact on the planet.

According to one calculation by Indiana University anthropologists, one with a permanent crew, a helicopter pad, submarines and pools emits over 7,000 tons of CO2 a year.

Multiplied by 300, roughly the number of superyachts worldwide that fit that bill that equals over 2 million tons of CO2, more than the individual yearly emissions of about a quarter of the world’s countries.


Now, a proposed ship aims to leverage the superyacht’s aura of luxury and merge it with scientific research to create an emissions-free mega-ship that will pit together climate scientists and the wealthy in a daring quest to save the planet.

Aaron Olivera, the Gibraltar-born, Singapore-based entrepreneur said that wealthy people can go online and buy anything they want, but they cannot buy a new mental model with which to see the world.


If built, the new vessel, to be christened Earth 300 in reference to its length of 300 meters, or 984 feet, would dwarf even the world’s largest superyacht – the 590-foot long Azzam, owned by the Abu Dhabi royal family.



This ship will be a floating computer that will allow people from all around the world to participate in the journey.

Wealthy individuals who are coming on board will have to share the experience with the world, not just among themselves.
