Sunreef Yachts has launched the 80 Eco, an all-electric yacht with ultralight solar panels integrated into the hull sides, mast, superstructure and Bimini roof.
“We take a great step forward with this truly pioneering yacht,” Francis Lapp, founder and president of Sunreef Yachts, stated in a press release. “Renewable energy is the key element in the design of the Sunreef 80 Eco. Thanks to a revolutionary solar power system, hydro-generation and performance sails, the Sunreef 80 Eco provides full autonomy, relying on the sun, water and wind.”
The yacht’s wind-free propulsion comes from twin 180 kW electric engines. Under sail, the Sunreef 80 Eco recovers energy from the passive motion of the two propellers by way of a hydro-generation system.
Are other Sunreef Eco models available? Yes. The Eco line also includes a 50, 60, 70 and 100.
