Sinot denies sale of hydrogen yacht to Bill Gates

EEMNES – Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design of the Netherlands has denied British media reports it has sold a hydrogen-powered superyacht that is still in an early design stage.

Sinot showed such a yacht concept, called Aqua, at the 2019 Monaco Yacht Show, but stressed it is “not linked” in any way to the Microsoft co-founder.

“Sinot has no business relationship with Mr. Gates,” the Dutch design studio said in a Feb. 10 statement. “Aqua is a concept under development and has not been sold to Mr. Gates.”

This newsletter and its owner, the Dutch trade magazine Jachtbouw Nederland, have recently reported that the Dutch builder Feadship is developing a hydrogen-powered superyacht but named no client.
