SUNREEF R&D EXCLUSIVE: THE ZERO CAT

The Sunreef R&D Department is currently developing a sustainable sailing superyacht converting methanol to clean hydrogen to provide self-sufficiency and unlimited autonomy. The zero-emission catamaran will measure above 90 feet and is going to combine hydrogen power and electric propulsion to achieve a new level of eco-conscious cruising.

The Zero Cat will use a hydrogen generator to produce hydrogen from methanol on board. The system will benefit from green power produced by the yacht’s solar power system, with solar cells built into the yacht’s entire bodywork. The fuel cell system will generate clean energy with zero emissions. The energy will be used for both the electric propulsion and hotel loads.

The Zero Cat represents Sunreef Yachts’ commitment to the environment and the pursuit of cleaner and greener yachting solutions. Leveraging advanced technologies, engineering expertise, and a deep understanding of sustainable design principles, Sunreef Yachts seeks to redefine the boundaries of luxury sailing while minimizing its environmental impact.
“Our goal is to revolutionize the industry by offering discerning customers an exceptional zero-emission sailing experience. This project represents a milestone in our ongoing commitment to protecting our oceans and preserving the natural beauty of the sea. “Nicolas Lapp, CTO & co-founder of Sunreef Yachts.
