New week, new concept! Iddes Yachts has unveiled a new superyacht concept. This model runs on electricity and sails! At least, even in words the concept is interesting. Interparus will tell you more about this miracle boat.
Briefly about Iddes Sail 55
Iddes Yachts has unveiled a new futuristic yacht. The main goal of the company is to achieve environmentally friendly sailing on the sea.
Designed by Ivan Salas Jefferson, founder and international naval architect, Sail 55 is an all-electric sailing superyacht. This superyacht is designed to travel to the most remote corners of the globe. By the way, even without harmful emissions!
“We put all of our studio energy into developing the Sail 55. We believe the result is a technological and design revolution!” Jefferson says.
Features Iddes Sail 55
The elegant 180-foot yacht will be equipped with a range of interesting fixtures and fittings. Of course, most of the technologies used are aimed at improving the autonomy of the yacht.
One of the most striking and eye-catching features is the two masts. In fact, this yacht is a classic ketch. In addition, this design significantly reduces the load on the sails. The sails on the Sail 55 are easier to handle due to the reinforced rigging.
The deck is also uncluttered with ends and winches. The mainsail fits into the boom (twisting into the boom; quite a rare occurrence). The company claims this streamlined design performs well in most conditions without the need to lower sails or change course. In addition, the sails and keel keep the vessel stable without the need for complex stabilization systems.
Electricity and sail
The power of large sails is complemented by silent electric motors. Iddes Yachts did not give any figures regarding speed or range. But the company said that the superyacht will be equipped with the Hydrosolar system.
This system collects energy from the sun while sailing and stores it in large batteries. They also assured that this ship could spend months in the Mediterranean Sea, as well as go to the most remote corners of the globe.
The interior of the yacht will be simple but tasteful. The layout includes six spacious VIP cabins, as well as a spacious cockpit.
The yacht's impressive length also allows for a very practical aft design. Below deck, by the way, there are places for storing dinghys and even cars. Designer Jefferson sums it up: “This superyacht is worthy of taking on any journey. We look forward to experiencing it live!” How right he was, we will see in time.
