Lloyd Werft and Stay Sea Design have unveiled the concept of the 125m Albatross superyacht. The huge catamaran will be the development of "green" ideas and will give a new look at sustainable superyachts.
The creators of the new supercatamaran
Lloyd Werft Bremerhaven has already distinguished itself with the creation of the 139.7-meter Solaris and the 115-meter Luna. Now the Germans from Lloyd Werft will present the concept of a new 125-meter catamaran. The German shipyard designed the Albatross in collaboration with Stay Sea Design.
Their goal was to create a more environmentally friendly and "green" superyacht concept. Therefore Albatross is a sail catamaran project that will use all three available "clean fuels": wind, sun and water.
Technologies to be used
Lloyd Werft will use hard sail technology. In this case, the rigid sail technology is combined with solar panels. Thanks to this, the supercat will receive more than 1200 kilowatts of free driving force. According to preliminary calculations, the yacht should reach a speed of about 7 knots under sail alone.
The total area of solar panels will be 1150 square meters. They will be able to generate about 120 kilowatts per hour. The last "green" attribute is five vertical wind turbines installed on the upper deck.
The concept of the vessel is based on split modes of operation to ensure maximum fuel economy. It will be equipped with a hybrid power plant using methanol fuel. As the representatives of the shipyard explained:
“The ship uses a DC network to control and supply all consumers (devices) of energy. In drive/sail mode, the driving force is generated by four main engines with a capacity of 1,800 kilowatts each. They are connected in pairs with two gearboxes.
The main engines run on conventional marine gas fuel. This decision is forced - there are practically no alternatives for long transitions. At the same time, we level this controversial decision in another way. Conventional fuel consumption is reduced with rigid sail-wing technology. For use in both modes, four thrusters with a capacity of 400 kilowatts are installed. Two in the bow and two in the stern, for the safe and silent maneuvering of the yacht in port or at anchorage.
By the way, the desire to reduce environmental impact is directly reflected in the design. All selected superyacht materials are lightweight, durable and environmentally friendly.
Entertainment, recreation and amenities
Albatross promises to be not only the crowning achievement of the shipyard's eco-sentiment. Lloyd Werft also wants to show that green yachts can also be comfortable. The Albatross is designed so that not only will there be plenty of living space on board, but a decent range of activities for guests to enjoy.
So, on board there will be a gym, a spa, several salons and dining areas. Today, superyachts are nowhere without an impressive infinity pool. The catamaran can be completely customized. “Anything is possible with the right level of thoughtfulness and ideas from the customer,” explained Friedrich Norden, Head of Projects and Sales at Lloyd Werft.
The Albatross can accommodate 14 guests and 46 crew members. Lloyd Werft has also made sure that its latest concept can meet all the needs of the guests. The ship has plenty of space for tenders and toys. The boat also has a helipad.
In terms of performance, the Albatross is expected to be able to cruise at up to 15 knots.
