Emax E-Volution: The Fastest and Greenest Superyacht Ever?

(Press Release)
Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Designed by Sauter Carbon Offset and built by Ned Ship, the 66m Emax E-Volution is, according to the designer, a culmination of the best the yachting world, a vessel with a maximum speed of 28 knots and an unlimited "Zero Carbon" cruising range at 14 knots. Highlights of the design include.

SOLAR HYBRID POWER SOURCES
- 2MWs of Renewable Energy supplied by Wind, Sun, Waves &Currents
- 2MWs of ZF Hybrid Power supplied by MTU 2000 series Tier 4i engines, the cleanest marine diesel engines on the market.
- An additional 3MWs of energy harnessed from sustainable sources is stored and employed as ballast in a lithium ion UPS.

PROPULSION
The  Emax E-Volution’s Stabilizing Propulsion System features anhedral ZF 4000 Pods and a retractable anhedral foil.  The Pods and an electric bow thruster

provide the advantage of full time Global Positioning, an alternative to environmental damage caused by anchoring.

SOLAR ARRAY
The Photo Voltaic Exoskeleton imbedded into Ned Ship’s epoxy composite structure, generates up to 300MWs of solar energy per year, enough to run all hotel

services or by returning energy to the grid offsets up to 4,500 Carbon Nautical miles Cruising at 22 knots.

DYNAWING SCHOONER LEGACY
The Emax E-Volution’s High Aspect Ratio DynaWing sails are 20% shorter than a conventional rig, yet produce twice as much power. When moored or under severe

weather conditions the mainsails are reefed and the stay-less rotating Wingmasts are feathered into the wind.
Richard Sauter head of SCOD commented “as a Wingsail Schooner The Emax E-Volution inherits the legacy of the greatest sailing vessels of all time, past and

present.”
