Reports that Bill Gates has bought the world’s first hydrogen-powered superyacht that is worth $644m (GHC3,507,006,328) and has a large pool, helipad, spa, and gym are false, YEN.com.gh can report.

The Guardian reported that the Microsoft co-founder commissioned the ship, a-112-meter long vessel that is powered by hydrogen.

However, the designers of the super-yacht, Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design, denied the report.

In a statement issued on Monday, February 10, 2020, Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design, said that the hydrogen-powered Yacht project is not linked in any way to Bill Gates or his representatives.

The statement added that Sinot had no business whatsoever with Bill Gates and that reports linking the comonay to the billionaire are false.

In other stories, YEN.com.gh reported that at a very tender age, Victor Kuutuome, a budding Ghanaian sculptor, knew that he would impact generations and his rise to fame was aligned to this belief after he produced a near-perfect statue of dancehall artiste Stonebwoy.

From an economically-disadvantaged region, the native of Nandom (Wa) in the Upper West, was born in Winneba on April 1, 1991, and speaks four languages; Dagaree, Fante, Twi and English. Nicknamed Obama and Clay Dr, Victor had his basic education at University Practice School in Winneba, where he completed in 2006.
