"Sailor" - additionally to the advantages of the "Cruiser" the "Sailor" comes with sails.
This is noiseless cruising without any emissions - and with unlimited range.
The sound of the waves is like music in your ears and there is nothing disturbing this feeling.
Solarwave-Yachts are very light, much lighter than any comparable yacht. By using Epoxy-Cabon-Composite, we could reduce the weight about 50 %! This is, why a Solarwave is that fast!
In fair winds you are using the sails and at the same time you are charging the batteries - recuperation by the electric motors, which are working in "generating-mode". If the wind stops, or if you want to go against headwind, you continue noiseless driving by using silent electric propulsion.
A Solarwave does not care for the wind-direction. At day and at night - 24h/7d - non stop - always noiseless and free of emissions with the power of the wind and the sun.
In the rare case, that there is neither sun or wind 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.
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.
Compared to a conventionally powered Sailing-Catamaran, a Solarwave-Yacht has following advantages:
