Eco Factor: Megayacht propelled by a solar hybrid engine.

We frequently report about yachts that have adopted new technologies to reduce their carbon footprint. While most of them just aim to reduce emissions, this one from Sauter Zero Carbon Design promises to be the first zero carbon footprint megayacht in the world. Dubbed the Supernova, the 60m Solar Hybrid Megayacht boasts wingsails half as tall as sails found in conventional monohulls that promises to reduce drag and provide a much greater thrust.

The yacht also includes an advanced hydro and aerodynamic design that harnesses sun, wind and the waves to generate electricity to propel the yacht to a cruising speed of 17 knots. A 100 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions is achieved by employing multiple diesel electric drives that are supported by rotational wingsails.
