Solarwave 64 "Cruiser"

"Cruiser" - this means noiseless cruising without any emissions - with unlimited range. The sound of the waves is like music in your ears and there is nothing disturbing this feeling. No struggle with the sails, no tacking, no diesel-engine if there is no wind.

The wind-force and the wind-direction loose any significance for you, because your Solarwave is independent. You are independent. It is not anymore the wind telling you how fast you can go. On a Solarwave it is you, who is determining the speed! You do not have to wait for the wind to come - you decide when to leave the harbour. The power of the sun is stored in powerful batteries and you can use it whenever and however you like. Isn´t this better than sailing with the wind?

A Solarwave can sail 24h/7d - non stop. Noiseless!

Purely solar-powered up to 10 knots!

Contrary to conventional Hybrid-Yachts, the components of a Solarwave are configurated for long-range solar-cruising. Only powered by solar, without need to start the diesel-engine, as the battery-capacity is calculated for more than one night of permanent cruising.

In the rare case, that the sun is not shining for several days, the range-extender is a safe and reliable power-source, that guarantees fully charged batteries. Thus a Solarwave is always entirely independent from the weather. As soon as the sun is shining again, the batteries will be filled up noiselessly and for free.

This saves large amounts of fuel and money, it also grants more comfort - silent cruising and unprecedented energy-supply on anchor.

Compared to a conventionally powered Motor- or Sailing-Catamaran, a Solarwave-Yacht has following advantages:

 - significantly lower purchasing-price and maintenance-costs
 - nearly no maintenance-work to do
 - operational costs for propulsion and household close to zero
 - highest level of security and reliability  - redundancy for every vital system

Solarwave 64 "Power"

The "Solarwave-Power"  combines the advantages of the "Cruiser" - silent driving, free of emissions and free of costs for fuel and unlimited range - with the advantages of having two powerful diesel-engines for fast passages. You have the choice!

"Solarwave-Power" as a "parallel-hybrid" is equipped with 2 silent electric motors working together with 2 powerful Diesel-engines of 2 x 150 to 2 x 300 HP. Diesel-powered top-speeds of more than 20 knots are possible!

Compared to a conventionally powered Motor-Catamaran, a Solarwave-Power has following advantages:

 - significantly lower purchasing-price and maintenance-costs
 - much less maintenance-work to do
 - low maintenance-costs 
 - operational costs for propulsion and household close to zero
 - high "Fun-Factor" by its velocity-potential
 - maximum safety and reliability by multiple redundancy

Solarwave 64 "Sailor"

"Sailor" - additionally to the advantages of the "Cruiser" the "Sailor" comes with sails.

This is noiseless cruising without any emissions - and with unlimited range.
The sound of the waves is like music in your ears and there is nothing disturbing this feeling.

Solarwave-Yachts are very light, much lighter than any comparable yacht.  By using Epoxy-Cabon-Composite, we could reduce the weight about 50 %! This is, why a Solarwave is that fast!

In fair winds you are using the sails and at the same time you are charging the batteries - recuperation by the electric motors, which are working in "generating-mode". If the wind stops, or if you want to go against headwind, you continue noiseless driving by using silent electric propulsion.

A Solarwave does not care for the wind-direction. At day and at night - 24h/7d - non stop - always noiseless and free of emissions with the power of the wind and the sun.

In the rare case, that there is neither sun or wind for several days, the range-extender is a safe and reliable power-source, that guarantees fully charged batteries. Thus a Solarwave is always entirely independent from the weather. As soon as the sun is shining again, the batteries will be filled up noiselessly and for free.

About us

Company details

SOLARWAVE - THE TRUE HYBRID

It is our philosophy to offer our customers the best available Hybrid-Yacht. Not a "Mild-Hybrid" with a range of 10 miles at 4 knots, but a Solar-Hybrid with unlimited range and speeds of more than 10 knots - with electric motors!

SOLARWAVE-YACHTS are always Solar-Hybrid-Yachts, you can choose between serial and parallel hybrid propulsion and various engine-types. On special request your Solarwave can also have sails.
 
According to the intended use you have several options for the propulsion. All models are also availabel with sails.

What is the difference between a Solarwave-Yacht and a conventionally powered yacht?

* The special configuration of the components guarantees, that the solarpanels generate more power on an everage day, than the total consumption for all houshold appliances including propulsion at cruising speed! So you can make large passages every day only on solar-power.
* Top-level energy-efficiency by:
 - bionic design
 - towing-tank-optimized hull-shape
 - wind- and wave-drag optimized design
 - CNC-milling of the moulds
 - construction in carbon-composite with epoxy-infusion
 - light-weight and structurally strong
* Durability and long term maintenance of value by the use of epoxy resins
* Ergonomic design guarantees comfortable use and generousity
* Innovative propulsions and technical devices grant luxury and performance at very low maintenance costs
* modular construction and efficient design makes it possible to provide even fancy ideas for a very reasonable price
* extensive equipment like dinghy-garage or liftable stern-platform as well as induction cooktop, large 230V inverter and 20 kWh lithium consumer-battery
* autonomy - unlimited range without the need to refuel, recharge or fill up the water-tanks. This could be important issue. With the watermaker you can produce up to 3 tons of fine potable water every day. In combination with the huge cooling- and freezing capacity a Solarwave is your personal island offering everything you need for an independent and autonomous life during a long period of time.

For rare exemptions like longer periods of bad weather or a high cruising speed over several days all "Cruiser"- and "Sailor"- Models have a Range-Extender. This is a diesel-generator or a diesel-turbine recharging the lithium-batteries.

The energy can be used for propulsion as well as for the household appliances. Our testing vessels - a Solarwave 46 -  sailed 12.000 nm in ca. 2.000 electric engine hours during 5 years. In this 100 weeks the yacht had permanently guests on board. In spite of this high daily energy-consumption, the generator was working only 30 hours in 5 years.
The Range-Extender supplies you with powerful energy whenever it is necessary.
 
The normal case is the operation on solarpower. At the roof of the yachts high efficiency solar-panels of the latest generation are recharging the light weight lithium-batteries.
The special configuration of the components provides an unique energy-balance:  The solar-panels produce more power, than the household AND the electric motors consume on cruising-speed. So the batteries are charged while driving the boat!

We offer following proofed configurations:

* Serial Hybrid - electric motors with turnable saildrives from 10 - 150 kW (replaces a diesel-engine with 40 - 400 PS)

* Parallel Hybrid - diesel-electric Hybrid-Propulsion from 75 - 300 HP with shaft

* all required components for a self-sufficient supply of the household - no gas on board

* all required components for solar-production and storage, 230 VAC permanently available
