MegaYacht Super Nova is the world’s first Carbon Beutral Megayacht, designed by Sauter Carbon Offset Design.

A Revolutionary Plug-in, Super Fast, Super Green, Solar Hybrid Vessel that’s capable of generating enough surplus electricity to cruise Carbon Neutral for 7,000 nautical miles every year.

Richard Sauter Head of design commented.“ Super Nova’s state of the art Green Technology demonstrates that Carbon Neutral Superyachts are not just a futuristic dream, but a present day fact of life destined to become a ubiquitous reality.”

Super Nova and Formula Zero are the only Superyachts to harness sustainable sources of energy from Wingsails, PV Cells, and Power sailing KER, which combined with Plug-in power sources charge a Lithium ion storage system that runs all Hotel services. This same Lithium UPS enables Super Nova to reach her highest speeds and navigate harbors and inland waterways with Zero emissions

The currently available Green Technology present in Super Nova includes:

Mercedes Benz & Daimler BlueTec diesel electric power generation

State of the art adjustable camber fully rotational Wingsails.

Optimum solar cell deployment. 650sq. meters rated at 100kws

Power sailing (KER) (Kinetic energy regeneration)·

Azimuth counter rotating CLT high torque propeller systems.

Advanced wave piercing Catamaran Hi-speed displacement hull design

Advanced aerodynamic PV deck spoilers and radar tower canopy

Energy efficient equipment, AC & refrigeration with waste heat recover

Computerized energy management, maintenance & guidance.
Plug-in Lithium UPS rated at 1,000Kwh.

Super Nova’s Catamaran Hi-speed wave piercing hulls along with self leveling sea keeping hydro & aerodynamic advances will make her easily the Fastest Power Sailing Megayacht in the world.

Cruising at 18 knots a 75 to 100% reduction in GHG emissions is achieved by employing multiple BlueTec diesel electric drives supported by fully rotational wingsails, power sailing & wave motion regeneration, a 650 square meter solar cell array and UPS backup.

All combined, cruising at an average speed of 8knots Super Nova’s regenerative charge and lithium UPS provide for a virtually unlimited Zero Carbon cruising range.
