Sixty Solar Sail - New from Xquisite!

Create a notification for "Catamaran"

This catamaran dedicated to blue

water cruising has been designed by Dixon Yacht Design; the architects have gone for generous bridgedeck clearance (3’5” / 1.05 m) in order to guarantee good seakeeping in rougher conditions. Why Solar? Because this new model integrates 6 kWp of solar panels and 44 kWh of Li-ion batteries, allowing you to use all the comfort on offer - air conditioning and household appliances – without needing to fire up the generator. The deck hardware has been chosen and fitted for the boat to be managed single-handed, with a carbon boom and the mainsail on an electric furler. There is also an outdoor galley, a carbon crane (or hydraulic platform), a surfboard locker, a complete set of tools and spare parts and dedicated storage for the diving compressor. This catamaran features a large nacelle with generously-sized windows. The dining area is to starboard, the navigation station faces forward, and the galley is on the port side, accompanied by an imposing central island. The Sixty Solar Sail offers many options for the finish in terms of woodwork and upholstery.

Construction of hull #1 (composite sandwich with carbon reinforcements) has begun at the Phoenix Marine shipyard in South Africa, with launch planned for 2022. Next, a Sixty Solar Power has also been announced…
