Meet the World's Newest Solar-Powered Catamaran Yacht

A new catamaran concept has been launched by Swedish designer Dennis Ingemansson and Egon Faiss of the yachtbuilders Nedship Group. Dreamed up during 2015’s Monaco Yacht Show, the 50 meter boat its final design stages, intended to reduce the time it would take to reach the build phase once cleared for construction. The catamaran, which is able to be adapted to shorter lengths, is solar-powered, which is the Nedship Group’s specialty. The main focus of this design is to be as green as possible, so the designers included over 160 meters of solar cells, which are included in the boat’s exterior surfaces. The large solar cell area, combined with a hybrid propulsion system and wind turbine inclusion, offers the owner several ways to hit the high seas while reducing his or her carbon footprint.
