Highlights

Choosing a top-of-the-range seaworthy electric boat

The SSR19 2.0, is a top-of-the-line solar-powered autonomous electric boat, silent, odourless and with no additional fuel costs. Thanks to its photovoltaic panels, it ensures total autonomy all day long with a return of the boat possible at 100% charge. At night, its powerful batteries ensure several hours of navigation.

This elegant solar-powered catamaran offers a new lifestyle for a boat of this size. The large table in the centre of the boat is sheltered by an arbour, you go swimming from a large rear balcony and sunbathe on the foredeck. Although the boat is approved for up to 8 people, we limit to 6 people for a better comfort. Since it's launching in 2016, it has been sailing without ever resorting to electricity from the port's infrastructure, proof of the safety provided by solar navigation.

Is it a self drive boat or do I need a motorboat licence?

The catamaran is registered as a license-free boat or self drive boat. The seaZen Academy adapts the training period according to your experience. Boat licence holders or sailboat skippers discover the subtlety of solar navigation. Beginners gain confidence at their own pace. 

How does the boat rental work?

Given the size of the boat and the specificities of solar navigation, you must have Level 2 either by booking an initiation tour with a private guide either by obtaining 10 points in the free test.

This 1+2 Hrs rental, reserved for level 2 initiates, begins with an hour of perfecting port and anchoring maneuvers. Then you confirm the 800 € franchise guarantee by credit card and your guide leaves the ship. Then you sail two hours alone.

Good to know:

  • If you come back within a month, you benefit from the Boat-Club rate reserved for level 3
  • If you are passing through, think about the Accompanied Private Tour, this is the preferred choice of visitors to Nice according to TripAdvisor and it doesn't cost more

Additional information

  • In case of weather forecast above force 4 Beaufort, we postpone or cancel the booking at no charge (base € 130€ / 1 Hr practice + 120€ / 2 Hrs alone)
  • Plan your return time to dock, so as to leave the batteries 95% charged and the boat as clean as you found it
  • During peak periods we limit availability for security reasons

How to reach us?
