Sauter Carbon Offset Design recently introduced the superyacht Ark Angel with a design claiming to be faster and far greener than any megayacht in her class. The 78 m hull and decks are of Carbon/Kevlar composite construction, beam is 10 m and draft 2.4 m (at 50 per cent load): the superstructure is aluminum giving a displacement of 450 tons. The total propulsive power of the ship is 4,000 kW, split between three electric pods with counter rotating propellers (CRP).
The main engines ares four 400 kW diesel electric gensets powered by Daimler Bluetec Turbo Compound DD16 engines. BlueTec emission technology is a fully automatic system used for automotive applications to comply with the more stringent (than marine) emission regulations. A generous battery capacity of 3MWh permits propulsion solely on battery electric drive, electric power generation is also by solar cells Motion Damping Regeneration.
