Going Green

With the increase of all forms of transport to be more sustainable here are some of the more innovative developments within the yacht industry.

Eco Line

Sunreef Yachts Eco Line of motor and sailing catamarans, which range from 12.1 metres to 30.48 metres

The Eco line has been devised through an Eco Partnership with F1 champion Nico Rosberg who is the builder’s eco brand ambassador and the Polish multihull specialists.

The eco line yachts key features include lithium battery banks, solar panels, wind turbines and green propulsion packages. Ethically sourced and recycled materials that included cork, teak, linen, and basalt to create the hull and decking areas. The solar panels integrated within some of the catamarans exterior surfaces known as the “solar skin” is the most interesting.

EE38 Electric Elegance

EE38 Electric Elegance built by Electric Marine is a collaboration between the French Naval architect and multihull specialist Jean Jacques Costs who designed the exterior and Italian architect Aldo Parisotto of Parisotto + Formenton design house based in Milan designed in interiors.

The concept is simple yet sophisticated with beautiful lines and multi-function interiors to create a fully functional elegant electric day yacht. Customised electric propulsion system, fibreglass hull and materials chosen for there longevity. The original style concept was based on No Need – No See philosophy to meet Electric Marine vision of Powerful, Elegance and Silence as a vehicle of transition into green energy without compromising performance or elegance.

The EE38 is planned to be available in two elegant interiors Milan Luce or Scandi Marine

The new concept day yacht is due to be showcased at the Monaco Yacht show in September 2021

Black Pearl

Back Pearl built by Oceanco, designed by Ken Freivokh Design, Nuvolari Lenard and Dykstra Naval Architects.

Leaving the most impressive to last, not just for its size at 106.7 metres, appearance, and name but for its true zero-emissions capabilities. Dynarig sail system allows for ease of use so it can constantly sail to the wind conditions without relying on the engines to motor sail.

The highly intelligent energy management systems regenerates energy to run onboard operations or propel the yacht in the case of light winds, through trailing propellers in the water and producing electricity through the gear box. The additional energy is used to charge the Energy Storage Systems (ESS) to make the Black Pearl the largest self-sufficient sailing yacht.
