Porto Cervo welcomes the first nautical showroom with a fully electric focus, aimed at inspiring change and promoting pollution-free boating. These are, however, performance boats – dedicated to speed, elegance and sustainability. On display will be two of the best representatives of the electric new wave: the SAY 29E by Carbon Yachts and the Electric Elegance 38.
Lightweight and rugged, the latest launch from German shipyard Carbon Yachts, which specialises in carbon hulls, the SAY 29E has the highest fuel-efficiency in its sector, confirms Maik Heiligensetzer, Head of Sales and Marketing, “in addition to low emissions, a direct result of the ultralight weight of the SAY 29E, we are very proud of the exceptionally efficient electric propulsion system. With a maximum speed of 49 knots, the SAY 29E holds the world speed record for electric yachts under 10 metres.”
The SAY 29E starts from €396,460.
ELECTRIC ELEGANCE 38
The EE38 was created with sustainability in mind: the highly efficient electric propulsion system and synthetic deck and cushion coverings reveal designer Jean-Jacques Coste’s ambition of limiting the environmental impact of this fast electric day cruiser (Coste also designed the super-trimaran Galaxy of Happiness). The brand’s three key words – Performance, Elegance Silence – sum up the character of this 38-footer, which boasts the best autonomy in its sector. The EE38, which will be joined by a 28-foot version due to be released shortly, can be purchased exclusively through the showroom in Porto Cervo from summer 2021, with delivery in Spring-Summer 2022 and prices starting from €975,000.
