Nedship and Solarwave developed a zero-emission catamaran aka the Tesla on the sea - The Solarwave 64. Would electric forerunner Elon Musk buy that yacht?

The yacht has solar cells on the roof that produce enough power for the propulsion and the hotel functions for maximum independence to stay for long periods on the sea. The catamaran is a lightweight construction of 18 tons. Standard material is e-glass and infused epoxy. Optional is a carbon version available.

Solarwave tested the system for 4 years with a prototype. The two electrical engines give her a top speed of 10 knots. The solar yacht has also features like a retractable sky roof and a garage for a 6.5-metre tender on a yacht with a length of “just” 18 meters.

For people who like the yacht itself, but don’t want a full-electric propulsion: It is also possible to order the yacht with diesel engines.

Nedship develops currently the SolarWind 64 – a retractable sail assisted version, the Relax 72 and the Eclipse 84 (Tri-Deck version).

The Solarwave 64 comes with a price of ca. € 1.96 Mio excluding VAT.
