Welcome to the Sales-Site of Solarwave-Yachts (Solarwave AG, Switzerland)
and Hyperion-Yachts (Sunwave Ltd., Malta).
We have launched this site to make you find us, the official distributor of Solarwave AG and Hyperion Yachts, well. Anyway you are very welcome to visit our official website Solarwave and Hyperion-Yachts.
Why Solarwave / Hyperion Solar Yachts?
Conventionally powered boats have a range of 300 to 500 nautical miles under diesel-engine. With a sail the range can be extended - if wind is coming from the right direction and in matching force.
We have developed a system that reduces the operation-hours of diesel-engines and thus the consumption to close to zero.
Our solar-system is more simple, needs less maintenance and costs less than any conventional fuel-depending propulsion and energy-supply. It grants more luxury, comfort, independence, relyability and safety. And it is proofed. It runs since 2009 on the Solarwave 46.
At the roof of the Sunwave / Hyperion yachts high efficiency solar-panels of the latest generation are recharging the light-weight lithium-batteries.
The special configuration of the components provides an unique energy-balance: Solar-panels produce more power than household and electric motors consume. So the batteries are beeing charged while driving the yacht!
Please visit us in Cannes, Monaco and Düsseldorf or directly on board.
History of HYPERION / SOLARWAVE
The worldwide first fully self-sufficient bluewater-catamaran
Solarwave offers a unique concept of an independent energy-supply. The first Solarwave 46 started a rigorous 5 years sea-trial in January 2010. She crossed Europe by river (from Bonn to Istanbul), sailed the dangerous Black-Sea, the stormy Aegean and the Med. This experience of more than 140 weeks was also enjoyed by hundreds of guests and visiting journalists. The functionality and sea-capability of this yacht were fully scrutinised and passed with flying colours.
Solarwave accommodated 6 - 8 guests with electrically prepared full board, water-production, cooling and heating. And on top of that Solarwave was able to power the engines - every day in any weather-conditions. In storms of force 9 as well as in calm, with sun, rain, cloudy sky, snowfall and ice. All exclusively with solar-power. During this period of 5 years there was no need for maintenance or repairworks, neither the solar-plant nor the batteries or the electric-engine.
The generator, which has to be on board for safety-reasons, was working for 30 hours in five years - primarily to avoid becoming rusty .... during the same period of time the electric motors worked more than 2.500 hours ...without any maintenance, more than 12.000 miles in all conditions.
This is the proof for the suitability for everyday use of the "Solarwave-System". The "Solarwave-System" has been awarded with the "Energy-Globe-Award"
