RENEWABLE ENERGY
ON YACHTS

Solar Panels

Solar Panels

Solar catamarans harvest power from the renewable elements for a more eco-conscious and efficient cruising experience. In-house designed and manufactured by the shipyard, Sunreef Yachts’ solar panels are state-of-the-art. They can be easily mounted anywhere on the sustainable yacht’s surfaces, including the hulls and masts, maximizing solar power. The panels are fully customizable in terms of size and shape to easily adapt to any structure on board. Dismounting for maintenance and repair is effortless. Flexible and ultra-solid, they are the industry’s lightest panels. Sunreef Yachts is also the first company to integrate solar panels in the curved carbon bimini roofs of its eco yachts. The Sunreef shipyard’s R&D department is also developing an advanced system to recover heat from the panels to heat up the eco-friendly yacht’s boiler.

Hydro Generation

Hydro Generation

Hydro generation is about creating power whilst sailing in a sustainable catamaran. Sunreef Yachts Eco yachts can be equipped with advanced electric propulsion allowing power to be generated from the propeller rotation while the yacht is navigating under sail. This energy can be used to power the propulsion battery bank as well as the electronics on board. Hydro generation is highly efficient on eco yachts as they can recover electric power from two engines. It is a reliable and endless source of power for eco-friendly yachts.

Wind Turbines

Wind Turbines

Wind turbines produce power from the wind to keep the yachts battery bank charged. They play a very important role in the energy mix of every eco yacht. They are a stable source of power throughout the day, but also at night and in cloudy weather, when the yacht cannot rely on solar power. Energy is produced not only under navigation but also while docked. Using a sustainable power source, wind generators can operate in various wind conditions, starting from very light winds to stormy weather. The turbines are usually placed atop of the eco-friendly yacht to maximize the conversion of wind power to electricity.
