solar-powered catamaran is a next-generation green icon for yachting

 

designed to be ecological, spacious and functional, the 42 meters ‘solar dream’ catamaran is a collaboration between swedish superyacht designer dennis ingemansson and turkey-based ned ship group. even more, the project will set a new standard as a next generation green icon for yachting.

keeping the running costs efficient, dennis ingemansson and ned ship group have proposed a 360 square meters solar cell area and a hybrid propulsion solution with additional e-engines for slow cruising. these elements indeed make the catamaran a highly sustainable water vehicle. construction wise, the hull will be made of carbon and composites. furthermore, the mast is height adjustable, making it easy to go under most bridges.

the 580 square meters interior space offers a luxurious experience, with three guest rooms that can accommodate ten people and double owner’s suites. on the other hand, to navigate the ‘solar dream’ catamaran, the control room can house four crew members and a captain.
