E Electric Catamaran

E Electric Catamaran

Designed to let its guests take pleasure in the water in silence, E is a 60- foot sailing catamaran with electrical propulsion. It was established in collaboration with Sunreef and has 2 steerable 55 kWh engines, connected to a 134 kWh lithium battery and 4.5 kW photovoltaic panels. The resulting system can sustain cruising speeds up to 7 knots for as much as 6 hours, with a diesel backup generator extending range out to 1,000 nautical miles. Recyclable performance sails enable wind-powered movement at speeds up to 12 knots, and 4 en-suite cabins make sure passengers are treated in addition to the environment, with chef-prepared meals and lots of water toys. It’s available for charter in the Caribbean from December-April, and from June-September in the Mediterranean.
