With its open bow design, the SunWave is the ideal solar powered boat for a few hours outings in a 5-10 mile radius.
It comfortably seats 7 people while retaining ample sunbathing space on the front and rear decks. The translucent sunroof offers a modern shade when the sun is at its zenith. Its 2 bathing ladders make it possible to enjoy long, convivial swims while remaining with several people at the back of the boat. The silence and the absence of smell allow to sail at any time of the meals, even at night. The passengers are pleasantly lulled by the peaceful lapping of the water.
Tips for buying a solar catamaran.
Design and improvements of this new version
This 3rd generation of the solar catamaran takes up the design of the SSR19 while improving quality. SunWave has benefited for the completely redesigned new boat from the seaZen experience that charters the SSR19 in the Mediterranean. Since 2016, the SSR19 has been subjected to the most demanding sailing and operating conditions.
The eco-design of the boat has allowed the selection of 90% recyclable structural materials (aluminum, and marine plywood). The fiberglass floats are part of the APER eco-contribution process. The batteries and solar panels are recyclable through specialized channels.
Here are the main improvements made by SunWave:
- The solar roof, lighter, is raised by 10 cm to facilitate entry from the rear
- The seat is also raised for greater comfort
- The stern with square angles allows to install 2 bathing ladders on the floats
- The engine in a central position does not protrude from the floats, which allows the stern to be brought closer to the dock
- The fender strips protect the port maneuvers
