SWATH Electric & Hybrid Luxury fast Tender
The SWATH Electra Glide Limousine Tender
Sauter Carbon Offset Design (SCOD) Introduces the SWATH Electra Glide Limousine Tender, the world’s first Carbon Neutral Solar Hybrid Megayacht Tender which combines the environmental benefits of solar electric sustainability with the No sea sickness comfort of an anti-roll SWATH vessel.
As the Megayacht SWATH Tender derives its floatation from submerged pontoons, it requires a slightly deeper draft to enjoy the advantage of not being moved about by wave activity on the surface. At the same time to enjoy the comfort of a full standing cabin, the height of the tender is slightly greater. Clearly the breadth and scope of the modern Megayacht can easily accommodate these minor variations, especially since the Tenders flat bottom twin hulls make it free standing either on deck or in a compartment and because it can be hoisted from a single point.
Powered by twin 300hp Regen Electric outboards the Tenders maximum speed is 45 knots. Even so this state-of-the-art Hi-Performance Tender is far greener, more ergonomic, virtually silent and unlike power from internal combustion engines is extremely efficient throughout its entire speed range. At 8 knots the 50kwh Li Po Batteries give the Tender a zero carbon range of up to 40 nautical miles. The 20kw a day solar panels produce up to 7Mws annually, which at 16 knots is enough energy to travel more than 1,000 carbon neutral nautical miles.
In typical ship to shore commuting the Tenders Solbian solar array generates all the energy needed. If more power is required, a choice of diesel Gensets up to 85kws extends the tenders range and boosts the hotel services while recharging the batteries in under an hour.
Other innovative features are the unparallel luxury of its 2 meter standing height and convenience of its fully equipped galley and bar which expands the utilization of the Tender to Day Trip expeditions which allows for beaching in remote areas due to the SWATH twin hull design. A ladder drops to the water from the stern deck where scuba diving gear is stored along with water skis that take advantage of the Tenders extremely high speed potential.
The 12 passenger Limo Tender comes with air conditioning that provides both cooling and heating. A surround sound entertainment system with two flat screen T.V’s which can display exterior security cameras and navigational data. For greater enjoyment, electric side opening gull wing windows offer shaded luxury in a airy interior ambiance.
The SWATH Electra Glide Tender is advancing the maritime world towards Responsible Luxury Yachting, where Carbon Neutral Solar Hybrid Vessels are the new standard.
