Helios - Yacht with Solar Sails

Sailing Yacht Concept 'Helios' with Solar Sails

Talented Italian yacht designers Marco Ferrari and Alberto Franchi developed a green-powered 55m Panamax ketch-rigged sailing yacht with a flybridge for the Young Designers Award 2015 that features solar sails.

Solar Sails? Is a sailing yacht not green? Modern and big sailing yachts need power for the hydraulics, electrics and hotel functions. So they need generators, turbines and power banks to run the systems.

Marco Ferrari and Alberto Franchi combined a diesel-electric system with a 2052 m² sail area with 2500 panels of flexible silicon solar cells. They produce a power of ca. 355 kWh directly to the batteries.

The yacht accommodates 10 guests in four cabins and one owner’s suite with its own private beach club.  A crew of 8 cares about yacht and guests. Cabins are located on the lower deck.

Guests can enjoy a pool on the flybridge what can be transformed into a sunbathing area when the pool is not in use for instance when the yacht sails.

At the stern are a bathing platform and a big tender storage for a 5m and 7m tender, jet skis and other toys. Another opening is on the starboard side for boarding from the tender.
