"Cruiser" - this means noiseless cruising without any emissions - with unlimited range. The sound of the waves is like music in your ears and there is nothing disturbing this feeling. No struggle with the sails, no tacking, no diesel-engine if there is no wind.
The wind-force and the wind-direction loose any significance for you, because your Solarwave is independent. You are independent. It is not anymore the wind telling you how fast you can go. On a Solarwave it is you, who is determining the speed! You do not have to wait for the wind to come - you decide when to leave the harbour. The power of the sun is stored in powerful batteries and you can use it whenever and however you like. Isn´t this better than sailing with the wind?
A Solarwave can sail 24h/7d - non stop. Noiseless!
Purely solar-powered up to 10 knots!
Contrary to conventional Hybrid-Yachts, the components of a Solarwave are configurated for long-range solar-cruising. Only powered by solar, without need to start the diesel-engine, as the battery-capacity is calculated for more than one night of permanent cruising.
In the rare case, that the sun is not shining for several days, the range-extender is a safe and reliable power-source, that guarantees fully charged batteries. Thus a Solarwave is always entirely independent from the weather. As soon as the sun is shining again, the batteries will be filled up noiselessly and for free.
This saves large amounts of fuel and money, it also grants more comfort - silent cruising and unprecedented energy-supply on anchor.
Compared to a conventionally powered Motor- or Sailing-Catamaran, a Solarwave-Yacht has following advantages:
