Out of respect for the environment, the Italian mini yacht-maker Jet Capsule created a fantastic floating home concept called the U.F.O. - Unidentified Floating Object.
The floating home on the ocean moves with the help of an electrically charged hydrojet engine (specifically, waterjet-propelled Torqeedo Deep Blue 1800 electric motor) that is located on the bottom of the hull and connected to a battery. The battery gets its juice from 40 square meters of solar panels on top of the structure. Being self-sustainable, UFO carries a water generator on board, which can be used to obtain clean drinking water from either rain or even salty seawater.
The fully sustainable, off-grid U.F.O. is capable of traveling by sea at a maximum speed 3.5 knots (or 6.5 km/h).
Inside on the 20-square-meter main floor you will find a spacious living room and a lovely kitchen, while on the submerged 10-square-meter level the bedroom and the bathroom with a million-dollar view eagerly await. On a deck there is a lushful vegetable garden, measuring 12.5 m in diameter.
Currently, the company is still raising funds to build a prototype based on their concept. It is estimated that when and if UFO becomes a production model, we're looking at a $200,000 purchase price.
