ECO-CATAMARAN is a new design by Alu Navis, a very experienced builder of aluminum boats for professional use. Specifically designed for charter operators, this vessel sets a new standard for comfort, easy of use and sustainability. CE Certification Cat A With the use of innovative eco-solutions Eco-Catamaran is a self-sustainable vessel. Electricity and water are produced on board, providing a high quality of life without the need to supply in crowded and expensive marinas.
|Vessel condition:||Built to Order|
|Vessel type:||Charter Sailing Catamaran|
|Length over all:||15.03m|
The "Eco Catamaran" is made of aluminum which makes the vessel exceptionally strong, long-lasting and with a high resale value.
Moreover, aluminum hulls are almost 100%, recyclable. This compares very well to fiberglass boats that after 20 to 25 years of use become a major environmental problem as no efficient way of recycling polyester/glass/epoxy has been found.
The "Eco Catamaran" design & engineering solutions have enabled to get 4 large guest cabins with real “king size” beds. Each cabin is 10,3 m2 (3.35 m. x 3.1 m), which is a 40% to 50% increase in cabin area compared to any sailing catamarans this size. Each cabin has a separate 2.4 m2 (2.10 mx 1.15 m) bathroom, 50% larger than the competition. There is also a comfortable cabin for skipper and hostess ( two beds ) with a separate large bathroom, totally separated from guest areas.. Thus "Eco Catamaran" by area and quality of accommodation can be compared with catamarans of 18 to 20 m length, whose price is at least twice that of "Eco Catamaran".
Besides comfort special attention has been devoted to the “Ecologic” aspect of this catamaran. On the roof, above the salon, are located thin (3 mm Sun Power) solar cells, with a total area of 10 m2, and producing 2.2 KW. Additional energy is produced by 2 windmills (vertical axis – very silent ) total power 700 W, a 3.8 kW diesel generator, plus 2 Volvo 40 hp sail drive motors. Generated or accumulated electricity is stored in 9 GEL batteries with a total capacity of 1800 Ah.
These solutions allow the complete, stand-alone and ecological operation of all electrical systems installed, with exceptionally high levels of comfort on board.
The vessel is thoroughly air-conditioned but in order to reduce electricity requirements a special “natural cooling system” has been employed, allowing controlled airflow between the outer hull and the interior of the salon and cabin. Thermal insulation panels on the roof and sides help keeping internal temperature very pleasant.
Sanitary water (500 liters of tanks, constantly supplemented by a 60 lit / hour water-maker) is heated by circulation in the ducts placed below the solar cells and thus increasing their efficiency (patented system). Additional electric 1 KW heaters in the tanks allow possible additional warm-up in colder days.
Hulls are only 130 cm wide, allowing excellent hydrodynamic properties and with an exceptionally aerodynamic shape of the whole catamaran hull, lifting keel and a low total weight of 13.2 tonnes (unloaded), enables the "Eco Catamaran" to achieve significantly higher speeds than competitive catamarans.
The flybridge / cockpit on the roof has place for 10 people and there is a lift table for 10 people. The roof is also an outdoor living space for clients / crew, dimensions are 7.5 m x 4.5 m (33.75 m2). The awning system provides shade for the flybridge / cockpit even during sailing and at anchorage a special awning covers the entire roof.
The deck and roof are all covered with synthetic cork and the interior floors of the salon, cabin and bathroom are covered with synthetic teak. The interior is of a modern and luxurious design with extensive use of modern materials. Large windows provide plenty of natural light to cabins and salon. The rear 2 cabins have exceptionally large panoramic windows. Stern fence, made of transparent polycarbonate, is folding into a large sunbathing platform, measuring 2.1 m x 4 m.
The first unit of this range is already under construction with delivery scheduled for the end of 2018.
Equipment includes : 2 x 150 Lt. refrigerators, freezer 70 liters, dishwasher, washing machine / dishwasher, microwave, gas cooker, electric oven, ice maker, coffee machine and a 60 lit./h water-maker.
Each cabin has its own large TV set, radio, USB, mobile phone charger and laptop. Eco-Catamaran is also equipped with a wi-fi system.
Mast clearance is 22 m, and a special system is employed to allow unobstructed airflow to the main sail to increase the efficiency of the main sail. The main sail area is 85 m2 ( one hand sailing ), furling genoa 100 m2, asymmetrical spinnaker 240 m2.
