BLUE ANGEL is the name of a 36m hydrogen yacht concept by Diana Yacht Design and Exmar Yachting.

The concept was developed after a meeting with a family that likes luxury lifestyle, traveling but also cares about the environment. Yacht designer and naval architect Casper Marelis created the car industry-inspired exterior design of the hydrogen yacht. The yacht has a large open aft deck with lounge areas and sunbeds. A crane moves tenders into the water. The large fixed bathing platform has access to the sea and the beach club with spa and gym. The bridge deck has a shaded seating area outside of the upper lounge.
