Ecology is becoming a major issue

There are many ecological advantages. Firstly, the legislation concerning navigation in the Mediterranean is being tightened, by banning fuels with too high a sulphur content and less refined. As mentioned in a previous article on this page, these fuels are harmful both to the human body by irritating the mucous membranes and to the environment, especially by causing acid rain.

Secondly, we live in a world where oil reserves are dwindling while the use of oil is increasing. It is therefore necessary to find alternative energy systems in order to live.

A catamaran architecture

The SunSeaRider is a catamaran. That is, it floats on two parallel hulls. The purpose of this configuration is to reduce the resistance to water thanks to the finer hulls than that of a monohull. This pleasure craft gains in stability and deck surface, thus in comfort for the passengers. The SunSeaRider is a motorized vessel without sail and unusual since it has two engines running on electric power, generating no pollution. It was developed by the naval and aeronautical architect Éric Magré, from Polycreatis, and asked for no less than five years of work.

100 % eco-responsible

The principle is simple, its vast platform of solar panels is in the form of a small roof sheltering the passenger space. It absorbs solar energy and converts it into electrical energy by means of photovoltaic cells. Batteries store this ecofuel carefully and allow the propeller to be powered by modest outboard engines (from 2 to 4 kWh), the most silent in the world. It is even possible to connect the motors directly to the panels, so as not to draw into the batteries. The goal is to return to port with a charge at least equivalent to 85%!
