Zen Yachts and Ayro: Collaborating for a Greener Nautical Experience
Ocean Zero, an investment firm focused on sustainable aquatic travel, has given Series A funding to Zen Yachts.
A startup that specializes in the design and manufacture of electric watercraft is Zen Yachts.
A 51.5-foot fully electric catamaran, the upcoming Zen50 concept, is being developed by Zen Yachts.
The Zen 50 offers a 12-passenger capacity, four bedrooms with attached bathrooms, a complete kitchen, and three levels of space.
A carbon fiber multi-hulled design is adopted by the Zen50 to maximize range.
Two 50 kW electric motors and a 160 kWh LFP battery pack provide propulsion for the Zen50.
In order to enhance the boat’s performance, Zen Yachts has partnered with wing sail firm Ayro.
With the combination of a fully automated wing sail and a solar roof on the Zen50, an emission-free sailing yacht is created.
The aim of Zen Yachts is to achieve a zero-carbon footprint by 2030, prioritizing safety with redundant electrical and insubmersible compartments.
