Sauter Carbon Offet Design has unveiled the design for the 42m Ocean Supremacy, the largest and greenest among the 10 fastest superyachts in the world. While her maximum speed of 53 knots makes her Pirate proof, her 50% reduction in fuel consumption and 14 knot zero carbon cruising speed make her the most advanced eco luxury superyacht that money can buy.
The super fast, super green Ocean Supremacy utilizes a 9 MW solar hybrid propulsion system powered by a combination of sustainable sources of energy that integrate and exploit the availability of; solar, wind, wave and bio mass diesel power.
The 42 meter Ocean Supremacy is more than twice as fast as most superyachts yet consumes half as much fuel and produces less than half as much GHG emissions by employing a diversity of renewable power sources. The ability to shutdown 1 to 6 of her Tier 4i diesels allows her to achieve the very highest level of efficiency with the lowest rate of consumption at virtually all speeds.
The Hydrodynamic efficiency of hi-speed wave piercing SuperCats is clearly indicated by their incredibly small wave making signatures. This visible difference points to why the power requirements of Ocean Supremacy are 30% less compared to conventional hi-performance superyachts. Ocean Supremacy enhances this inherent advantage by providing efficient Power on demand via variable sources matched to a variable as well as a drag free retractable drive system.
To minimize the effects of drag, Ocean Supremacy’s aerodynamic form is optimized in a Wind Tunnel to insure that a lamina flow is maintained from bow to stern where foils are employed to eliminate the extreme turbulence and drag associated with the vast majority of conventional superyachts.
Richard Sauter commented. “Ocean Supremacy is the first cutting edge, no compromise eco luxury superyacht of her kind. Operating with renewable sources of energy, she combines the advantages of reserve power for emergencies, more comfort in rough seas, more space for entertaining and the privilege of total independence which comes from having an unlimited zero carbon cruising range”.
As a certified Carbon Offset Project, Ocean Supremacy can save on average 4,000 tons of CO2 per year. Plugged in to shore power she is capable of feeding 200+Mwh’s of electricity to the grid, enough energy to offset an annual carbon neutral cruising range of 3,600nm at 18knts.
