Ul­ti­mate off-the-grid lux­ury

Boating NZ - - Caption Competition - Im­age Boats: 6.5m Pon­toon

THE GER­MAN-MAN­U­FAC­TURED So­lar­wave® 64 is a new, fully-sus­tain­able pow­ered cruis­ing cata­ma­ran. She boasts an elec­tri­cally-pow­ered top speed of over 10 knots and, the­o­ret­i­cally, an un­lim­ited range.

With a huge Lithium Poly­mer bat­tery pack, 15kw of so­lar pan­els and light­weight de­sign, she can do back-to-back 100-mile days purely on so­lar – turn­ing sus­tain­able yacht­ing from a dream into a re­al­ity. In the event of pro­longed bad weather, the So­lar­wave® has a large diesel DC gen­er­a­tor to top up the bat­ter­ies.

The ves­sel com­bines nu­mer­ous de­sign in­no­va­tions and ad­vanced con­struc­tion tech­nolo­gies along with high qual­ity ma­te­ri­als and com­po­nents. The net re­sult is huge weight and ef­fi­ciency sav­ings in an af­ford­able pack­age with su­pery­acht build qual­ity.

The So­lar­wave® 64 will be on dis­play at the In­ter­na­tional Mul­ti­hull Show at la Grande Motte in April and re­tails from ¤1,950,000. The Sun­wave 54 is sched­uled for launch at the Cannes Boat Show in Septem­ber, with a start­ing price of ¤1,126,000.

Renowned for its rough wa­ter-ca­pa­ble de­signs, In­ver­cargill’s Im­age Boats is now pro­duc­ing a Pon­toon line as well. A new 6.5m Pon­toon is to be un­veiled at the show – a smaller ver­sion of the 7.08m Pon­toon launched last year.
