The Spanish-based Zen Yachts has recently revealed its latest creation, the Zen50 solar-powered catamaran.
1. World’s first series
Equipped with a wingsail, the Zen50 defines a new distinctive class of its own, Zen Yachts say, dubbing its new creation a game-changer where genuine zero-emission meets high comfort and performance. The distinct catamaran is offered with or without wingsail and comes in 3 main different version: Racer, Cruiser and Explorer, each dedicated to a different usage and owner profile.
Fully automated wingsails can be added as a range and speed extender. The yacht’s high-capacity battery bank powers a powerful silent electric propulsion, allowing the Zen50 to achieve 14 knots and maintain high continuous speeds in safety and comfort.
2. Award-winning architect
Designed from scratch for ZEN Yachts by award-winning naval architect Julien Mélot, the full carbon catamaran is dubbed the ultimate essence of technology driven, high performance and eco-friendly leisure yachting. The catamaran is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including a lithium-ion battery bank and an advanced power management system that allows the yacht to operate efficiently and with minimal environmental impact.
The Zen50’s unique wing sail measures around 93 meters, significantly boosting speed and allowing the yacht to sail silently. All-in-one, the Zen50 depicts the potential of sustainable technology in the yachting industry, featuring a yacht completely energy self-sufficient.
