Heading toward an easy access

With seaZen, any lover of the great blue who is at least sixteen years old can rent a boat without a license. The boats are high-end and can accommodate up to eight people.

The SSR19 proposed by seaZen is reminiscent of the Planet Solar, a catamaran 31 meters long also fueled by solar energy and launched in 2010. But on the side of Éric Magré and Philippe Marengo, designer and creator of the Suncy19 , The purpose of this new self drive boat was different. "Planet Solar is a large experimental boat. Our goal was really to make technology accessible to all, "declared Eric Magré the naval and aeronautical architect on France 3 in January.

His work has focused on the size of the product and on a pleasant and easy use. A clean, autonomous and eco-responsible solution to be produced in series and marketed this year. There is no question of remaining to the state of innovation reserved for a privileged few.

Training, if needed

With seaZen, any lover of the great blue who is at least sixteen years old can rent a boat without a license. The boats are 6 meters long and 2.4 meters wide. They can accommodate up to eight passengers (560 kg) to sail off Beaulieu-sur-Mer. And that those who have never had the pleasure of standing are reassured. The seaZen company offers a training hour, to learn the rules of conduct at sea and to familiarize yourself with the few unstoppable maneuvers (exit and entry into the harbor, quay maneuvers, mooring).

It is also possible to embark with a skipper, so as to be coached, if this reassures. Moreover, on the seaZen website, the basic safety rules are reminded, helping to review a bit before dropping the moorings. Please note that the agency can be contacted by phone (9 am - 6:00 pm), if you have any question.

In the harbor, the speed to be respected is 3 knots, 5 km / h, and 5 knots - 9 km / h - within 300 meters of the shore. The maximum speed of a Suncy19 is around 10 km / h, which is quite respectable for a relaxing boat trip.
