Philippe Briand has released his latest luxury yacht concept: The 60m/200ft SY200 sailing yacht which is capable of self-sustainability when it comes to generating energy, producing zero emissions when cruising from one port to the next.
The power is harnessed by the onboard sails and by underwater turbines, with the power from the former capable of generating an equivalent of 2,000 kW in optimum conditions. Depending on her speed, SY200 can generate 500 kW at 15 knots and 200 kW at 12 knots to match hotel loads. Any additional energy accumulated is stored in the 20-tonne onboard battery bank for use without generating noise while at anchor.
SY200 has been created to be the best performer in her size category, designed and installed with cutting-edge technology as well as modern-day comforts. The concept comes in under 500 GT, reducing the cost of maintenance as well as enhancing performance by minimising weight. Current concepts for the interior implement natural materials at their purest and most raw forms, and this natural beauty will complement surroundings created by the Owners’ interior designer.
The main living space is placed all on one level and 80% of the yacht’s length is protected by a glass coach roof and hardtop. The skylight provides excellent line-of-sight forward and upward to view the sail and rig above.
The accommodation for 10 makes use of the innovative interior layout to provide even more space to each guest across five en-suite cabins, with the Master suite having private access to the sea.
