Andrea Divirgilio / December 14, 2011

Of all the carbon free yachts in the world today, there are a few names which stand out for their advanced designing and engineering with a focus on eco-luxury, one being Sauter Carbon Offset Design. After presenting us with the world’s first carbon neutral luxury yacht in Net Zero 22m Excalibur, its time they use their expertise for creating a zero carbon tender yacht in Emax Super Marine 45. Using hybrid technology and carbon fiber bodies, the speed boat consumes 40% lesser fuel, while providing thrills unparalleled.

Zero carbon superyacht

In order to bring down the carbon emission levels, there is a combination of designing elements used. The engine is the CMD TDI 4.2 V8 engine, with the option GM Allison hybrid engine, which generates 900HP in all. This would mean that with a small adjustment, one can switch between the electrical modes and the conventional diesel mode. The electrical option can generate enough thrust for a 20 knots speed limit for the tender, a 32KWh Lithium UPS being the main reason behind it. Switching to the diesel mode on the other hand, can take the boat up to a rocketing 80 knots on the waters! This would put Super Marine 45 at the top of the list of world’s most powerful tender yachts. With the hybrid propulsion system, it can lead the way for many more yacht makers to come.

In terms of aesthetics, one can hope for a sporty yellow and black color combo, as seen above. With plenty of space up front, or even at the rear end behind the pilot, the Super Marine 45 will be an addiction for those who seek speed and adventure water sport thrills. Since the yacht mainly uses carbon fiber to construct the body, the weight and ruggedness of the hull remains in top order, thus lending out specific advantages aimed at a more eco-friendly yet powerful ride. The color combo as already mentioned, brings in a lot from the classic sports cars to styling is there too.
