The future of boating according to Nemesis Yachts will fly on computer-controlled hydrofoils.
Nemesis Yachts debuted their groundbreaking 332 feet (101 meters) futuristic hydrofoil catamaran concept.
Nemesis Yachts is creating a completely new ‘breed’ of sailing superyachts, catering to high-performance enthusiasts, who don’t want to compromise on cruising comfort. According to the yacht builder, Nemesis One will be able to break 50 knots speed barrier, while flying on computer controlled hydrofoils. Contrary to being a stripped-out racing vessel, the all carbon fiber Nemesis One boasts stunning futuristic, yet comfortable interiors.
“We’re the only multihull yacht builder, to offer a level of performance, previously reserved exclusively for striped out racing yachts. Combining: Ultra fast & zero emission cruising, luxurious & modern interiors, with fighter jet style ‘fly- by-wire’ autonomous controls,” said Nemesis Yachts in a statement.
Powered by VPLP Design’s patented ‘OCEANWINGS’ wing sail, the high-tech superyacht concept called Nemesis One resembles more of a stealth fighter jet, than a conventional sailing yacht.
One of the design’s cornerstones is the fully autonomous VPLP Oceanwings wing sail, powering the Nemesis One. The wing automatically adjusts it’s angle of attack, camber and twist, eliminating any need for manual sail trimming. Additionally, the reef and furlable wing sail is a staggering 2.6 times more efficient than a conventional sail plan of equal size.
But flying on water at speeds in excess of 50 knots, leaving most performance motor yachts in her wake, won’t come at the expense of security and comfort. Nemesis One will be equipped with the latest generation of smart LiDar (laser radar) sensors, precisely capturing the yachts surroundings. The current sea state, especially waves height, shape and frequency, will be live monitored by LiDar as well. All gathered data will be processed by the yacht’s mainframe and translated into precise control commands for the automated hydrofoils and rudders, making the yacht exceptionally stable & safe at any given speed.
The Nemesis One offers the unique option to exchange the port and starboard facing living modules, for ones with different interior configurations. Making it a breeze to transform the interior layout from owner to charter setup for example. To boost her performance even further, both modules can also be completely removed, transforming the already very fast yacht into ‘Ultra-Light Race Mode’ configuration.
Even without wind, the Nemesis One luxury catmaran will remain a zero-emission vessel. Powered by a retractable hydrogen-electric propulsion, the sailing yacht has no need for any fossil fuel. In addition to the hydrogen fuel, up to 750 sqm / 8073 sqft of solar panels, will generate up to 150kW of power, to recharge the yacht’s batteries.
