Luxury yacht Formula Zero 43´s catamaran configuration supports 800+square meters of light concentrating Wingsails that raise the efficiency of the largest Solar Cell Array ever deployed on a luxury superyacht of her stature.

Super yacht Formula Zero’s state of the art Wingsails half as tall as sails found in comparable monohulls, induce far less drag whilst generating twice as much thrust.

Catamaran wave piercing hi-speed hulls along with Formula Zero yacht‘s self leveling sea keeping hydro & aerodynamic advances, enables her to out run any vessel in her class in unparalleled comfort.

Cruising at 12kts a 75 to 100% reduction in GHG emissions is achieved by employing multiple diesel electric drives supported by fully rotational wingsails, power sailing wave motion regeneration, a 400 square meter solar cell array and UPS backup.

All combined, cruising at an average speed of 8kts yacht Formula Zero’s regenerative charge and lithium storage systems allow for a virtually unlimited zero carbon cruising range.

As a Certified Carbon Offset Project Formula Zero should save on average 4,000 tons of CO2 per year. Plugged in to shore power she is capable of feeding 200+Mwh’s of electricity to the grid. Enough energy to make 7,000 nautical miles of Carbon Neutral voyages every year.

Comparison technical specifications based on a 43m catamaran yacht Formula Zero 43 roughly equivalent to a 54m monohull:

Length 54m 43m
Beam 10.5m 15m
Draft 4.5m 0.8m
Guests 10 10
Crew 10 10
Weight
