anti-rocking mechanism is also used for passenger ferries/tourist boats

Oktober 2013

The first time, our anti-rocking mechanism is also used for passenger ferries/tourist boats: Not only the concept and the facilities are comfortable, this concept is also optimal for handicapped people. Similarly, the behavior of the boat in the waves allows a comfortable stay on board: No rocking, no seasickness anymore

SOLAR-Yacht

February 2013

The extremely large deck, the yacht floating (DPA a) ideal for solar operation.

The given, design requirements, to extendable or retractable provide additional solar panels are unique to this type of vessel. A completely self-powered vessel operating with a drive up to 15 knots is possible.

Years ago, the autonomous solar-powered yacht was a gimmick. Today, the associated technology has matured so much that it is possible only with solar, so fully autonomous to operate a boat. And with a cruising speed of 12 to 15 knots. At its peak, even to 3o knots.

One problem, however, is found on most boats: The problem with ...

  • as large solar panels and still a ...
  • minimum constraint for the people on board / deck

Our technology offers – reosanable by the yacht design - the best compromise:

You see the enormous solar surface. As you see, by the extension of the adjustable solar panel (to StB and BB), can not only increase the solar surface. It can also significantly increase their efficiency (= tilt toward the sun ...).

Benefit to the people: aft (rear) on the hulls, sides, and on the bow is still much space for the stay of persons available .Also on the side where the solar panels are adjusted to above (plus tilt ...) there is an optimal light incidence in all cabins. If you want sun, you go to the bow or stern bathing platform (rear, which can be up to 18 square meters).

Right: inclined additional solar surface, disguised (approximately 8:00 to 11:00 and again. 15.00 to ....).

Above the additional S-surfaces are the upper deck retracted (eg port call). A deck cabin superstructure reduces the S-surface, since this roof can also be fitted.

Below the S-surfaces are extended on both sides horizontally. The 2m-bathing platform aft (rear) and passenger area, the floats (under the solar surface) walked to the bow.

Our current research / development. In addition to solar power, we intend to utilize the wave energy that is available to us from the operation of our anti-swing technique. Here, the permanent movement energy is always available - even without sun - are converted into electrical energy.

On this website we will keep you informed of our progress of these developments.

An economical alternativ to solar:

These advantages of the new invention brings the RAH - automatic with Spira sails an alternative to solar power

First of all: Of the 12 benefits / protection requirements of this technical innovation, such as listed in the patent-writing, here are the 7 benefits that potential users with general technical knowledge of drive technology and with her interest in a yacht with additional Yacht alternative drive are immediately obvious: Spira = combination of spinnaker and square sails on special framework.

Here half reefed

1. What makes this solution NEW? The sail is a Spinnaker- /sqaresail-kombination (= Spira). It can regardless of physical force is and out-so exposed person from the cabin without that person the weather, set partly-and fully reefed. The framework as reefing device (Pat.a.) consists of a flexible shaft, which may in addition make-hoist and reef-a continuous, positive bulge of spirals sail.

2. The Spira rigging as an additional alternative, energy-independent from Yacht Drive has over the other self-powered ship propulsion systems such as first enable solar or wind generators the advantage of the sailing crew experience a higher profit than when using the alternatives that are nothing more than a motor drive.

3. The alternative drive with a Spira sail rigging is against solar power much cheaper in terms of specific investment in this technology. Specifically, this means that to achieve the same speed as with solar-powered boat, only about 40% of the solar investment costs are investing in this technology

4. Compared to the highly complex solar technology, this Spira technique is simple and can be repaired in case of need in every port in the world, without expensive replacement parts, which are often not available on the site as well as specialists who often have to be flown to the site of repair.

5. The Spira sailing technique is superior not only in terms of investment costs and driving performance compared with the solar energy to an essence: Obviously everyone is that even the wind blowing on the sea at night. The sun, however, is the only solar technology a day - and that not always. Knowledge: total cost considered is every reason to Spira Sail additional equipment. The sum. Less expensive and more efficient.

6. Comfort Advantage: A solar system on a yacht makes almost the entire top surface of the persons on board unusable, because it is not accessible. The Spira rigging a multihull for the mast requires at most one square meter of deck area.

7. Aesthetics: A yacht, equipped with solar technology, has inevitably had to remove his appearance far from the aesthetics of a ship. The opposite is in Spira rigging case: The square sail has always been the symbol of the seafaring - and is perceived as such by many as a visual component of a multi-hull yacht.

cabin whith the large sun (solar) deck

April to June 2012

The upper deck of our "smallest" yacht is about 64 square meters, the design is based on customer requirements, either as a sun deck with mostly open space, or with an separat cabin-section. Rear left is the opening for the future decline to be seen. (The chair in the middle of the deck is used for size comparison.) A large deck will be well insulated against the sunlight, so grid plates are loaded with 5 cm thick blue styrofoam. In addition, a 5 mm thick cork deck. This is applied to the aluminum frame of the upper deck.

Note: In our series of new types of solar electric yachts we are, with the largest contiguous area of deck boats, solar power especially suited deck boats, solar power.

Completion of the hulls and installation of engines

May 2012

The hulls will be transported along with the form for further processing to other manufacturing space.

Arrowhead hulls is high speed with minimum fuel consumption. Can be clearly seen in the figure, as the blank form of a hull of his "peeled" is.

Furthermore, we build only the extremely high-quality marine engines. Economical to use, a good kg / hp ratio and a low-noise operation are guaranteed!
