The following design preview of this interesting new take on building a truly world-cruising, sustainable yacht comes from the design experts at Yanko Design.
Designed primarily with the idea of facilitating responsible sailing backed by clean, renewable energy, the Sunreef 80 Eco yacht has just received the go-ahead to be a real sail for the affluent. When it’s out there for grabs, this will be the most sustainable luxury catamaran ever, which would, of course, inculcate the wonderful combination of ultra-modern green technology and supreme comfort of superyacht living.
The all-electric vessel is designed and will now be produced in-house by Sunreef Yachts to be a custom catamaran that navigates long distances in total silence. According to the builders, the Sunreef 80 Eco will have no range limitations since it will be powered by renewable energy, produced on the go, both above and below the waterline. It is an 80-foot long eco-cruiser that’s likely to feature Sunreef Yachts’ proprietary solar skin comprising the world’s lightest solar cells. This photovoltaic system will span a total surface of 150m², covering the hull sides, bimini, superstructure, and carbon mast of the Sunreef 80 Eco. This entire solar unit will generate up to 34kWp energy, which will be stored in ultralight lithium batteries on board.
