Energy efficiency is, therefore, the central axis of innovation in the exclusive segment of the Eco Super Yates.
Super Yachts eco-friendly, future or present?
Looking at some images of prototypes, it may seem that we are looking at something completely futuristic. But pioneering companies, such as SolarImpact Yacht AG, announced that they plan to deliver the first orders of Super Yachts driven 100 % by solar energy in February 2020.
Industry experts predict that the privileged ones who acquire the first units will have to pay around 8 million Euros (excluding taxes).
A survey conducted by the Monaco Solar & Energy Boat Challenge among owners of Super Yates reveals that concern for sustainability is a priority for them.
Luxury and respect for the environment are fully compatible and, according to most owners who participated in the survey, that a super-luxury vessel is 100 ecological is “simply the right thing.”
The prospects in the luxury yachts market are optimistic, and the forecasts point towards a rapid renewal of the current models driven for traditional fuels. Possibly, in the next five years, between 30 and 45% of the luxury yachts that sail the seas will be electric.
