Yet one more eco-yacht design to add to the list. This one is from the London based Rainford Mann Design. This 80 meter Eco-yacht which has been designed specifically not only to reduce the carbon and ecological foot prints of a conventional super yacht but also to cut the overhead costs, with increase in comfort level. The Eco-yacht features renewable energy concepts such as wind turbine and use of sky sail technology.

The ultra efficient generators fitted on the yacht reduce the production of vibration, noise and toxic emission. This is because the generators can be staged according to the power requirement. The system helps a lot in environmental sensitive areas such as coral reefs, by moving at slow speed and emitting less Co2.

Renewable energy sources such as 100 Sqm of solar panels and vertical axis wind turbines produce up to 30 Kw of power, which is used in lightening low power consuming equipments such as Led lightening through out the vessel. The solar heating panels take up the heat from the sun and drive an absorption chiller which reduces the air temperature inside the yacht, thus reducing the load on the air condition system. The absorption chillers can also be powered by the waste heat from the generators.

One more way provided to reduce the interior temperature is, by naturally ventilating the vessel with cool air drawn from a shaded sea water and by using specially treated glazing combined with external stutters to reduce infra-red heat transmission into the interior.

The recently introduced sky sail technology is helpful in reducing the fuel consumption by up to 50% with the help of winds at an altitude of 300 meter above the sea level.

The yacht can house 12 guests and includes a balcony that folds out from the side’s of the owner suite to form a platform in air, above the sea water. Provisions for all kinds of toys have also been made available.

This beauty is a perfect eco-friendly yacht that uses almost all the renewable sources of energy to reduce the effect of pollution on the environment. This is definitely for those people who wants to make a statement that they can be flamboyant and eco-friendly at the same time.
