Billionaire Invoice Gates has not commissioned a hydrogen-powered superyacht from designer Sinot, the agency has informed the BBC.
It has been broadly reported that Mr Gates ordered a £500m ($644m) luxurious vessel, based mostly on the idea which was displayed in Monaco in 2019.
Sinot mentioned it had “no enterprise relationship” with Invoice Gates.
It added that that the idea yacht, referred to as Aqua, was “not linked” to both him or any of his representatives.
“Aqua is an idea beneath growth and has not been offered to Mr Gates,” a spokeswoman mentioned.
She added that it was proven “in Monaco [and] meant to construct a greater future, and encourage shoppers and the business.”
Invoice Gates has been contacted by the BBC for remark.
The completed idea vessel could be 112 metres lengthy, in line with publicity materials launched by Sinot – though solely a two-metre mannequin has been constructed thus far.
It will be able to a high velocity of 17 knots, and have a spread of three,750 nautical miles (6,945 kilometres).
It will even be powered by hydrogen gas – a comparatively inexperienced different, in contrast with those who produce greenhouse gases.
