Sauter Carbon Offset Design Presents the Emax Excalibur: Gutsy Solar Hybrid Flybridge Cruiser

NedShip-Emax-Excalibur-22m-express-flybridge-cruiser-Solar-hybrid-GM-Allison-VW-marine-Sunpower-PV-carbon-epoxy-exoskeleton-carbon-neutral-zero-carbon-plug-in-copyRichard Sauter and his forward thinking design team introduce their newest concept eco-yacht to be built by the Ned Ship Group. As with their other carbon offset designs, this yacht operates on hybrid diesel power and has a photo voltaic exoskeleton, which in this case can offset up to 3,000 nautical miles of carbon neutral cruising at 18 knots.

Richard Sauter’s futuristic designs are feasible today, uniformly making use of currently available technologies. The Emax propulsion system combines the new VW Marine 350TDI V8 and the GM Allison dual mode Hybrid Transmission with Delco Remy motor/generators. The GM Allison transmission was developed with 330 million dollars of DOE Grants and currently powers hybrid vehicles worldwide.

NedShip-Emax-Excalibur-22m-LayoutRichard Sauter commented “ The Emax Excalibur is the world’s first Carbon Neutral Yacht built from molds in order to produce a semi-custom series which represents a revolutionary first step in the Maritime Industry towards the production of Post Carbon Yachts”. The Emax Excalibur is designed to be affordable, environmentally responsible, aesthetically powerful and high performance, with projected speeds topping 30 knots.
