Solar Power, Keep it Green

Solar 85ft, is the second Mega Yacht with solar panels to be built by Arcadia Yachts in Italy. The above picture was taken yesterday at the dock in Porto Cervo, Sardinia. Solar was launched in 2010 and has been listed with Edmiston & Company since its launch for charter at a price of €49,000 per week.

Solar run's what is called the hotel load usage of their solar panels. This means that everything from her air conditioning, lighting, refrigeration and the pump are all run from the solar panels. This gives a pleasant and tranquil feeling when on board without the hum's and noises of pumps and generators. She can burn 7.9 gallons of fuel per hr at a speed of 9kts and has a top speed of 18kts.

This Yacht can say that she is green from using solar panels to organic soaps and beauty products and the chef only using the finest organic foods to cook with where guest can enjoy in the aft deck. Solar can accommodate 8 guests in a full-beam master suite, a VIP stateroom and two twin staterooms. The interior is a contemporary with large windows from floor to ceiling windows in the saloon to let in the natural light.

"Guests can feel confident about their carbon footprint"
