Inflate Yacht / Yacht

Inflate Yacht
Inflate Yacht

The translucent gasbags attached to the yacht (A) are always inflated with the yacht. Tourists can see the bottom of the sea through translucent decks.

The upper translucent gasbags (B) provide UV resistance after being inflated. At the same time we still can see surrounding scenery through translucent gasbags. The inflation structure provides strength without frameworks.

The gasbags outside the yacht (C) will be inflated to broaden the body when staying over the sea. This makes the yacht steadier and not easy to swing when stopping. Tourists will be more comfortable when doing activities on the yachts.
