The SoelCat 12 is a trailblazing energy autonomous solar electric catamaran that delivers true eco-tourism to waterbound resorts, lagoons, nature reserves and reefs. The catamaran can utilise its solar array to feed an AC grid and is also fitted with a lithium battery with capacity of 120kWh that supplies it with power enough for 6 hours at 8 knots speed. Measuring 39ft in length, the SoelCat 12 can cruise at speeds between 6 and 15 knots.
The SoelCat 12 is a collaborative project between Soel Yachts and Naval DC. It boasts an ample deck space which is fully customisable and can feature a different range of seating arrangements and layouts. Thus, the catamaran can be transformed into luxurious and comfortable yacht or can serve as an economical deck gear for water taxi services, eco-tourism and water- bound resorts. For this purpose, the Soelcat 12 offers an adaptable platform for each application. Soel Yachts also can provide a simple bench setup for shuttle services or a fully equipped bar with matching lounge furniture for resorts or private owners and guests.
The lightweight yet tough and durable fiberglass construction, the large solar roof and the super slender hulls are the major key factors for the vessel’s high performance when it comes to speed and range. The vessel can even be used as a mobile AC power station with 15kVA of AC inverter power.
The SoelCat 12 is demountable and fits into two 40ft high cube containers making it ideal for transportation at affordable rates all over the world. Neither lamination processes or specialized tools are required for the SoelCat 12’s assembly on location. Perfect!
