Zaha Hadid Architects Unveils a Solar-Powered Catamaran for Rossinavi

Oneiric CatamaranSay hello to Oneiric, a new catamaran concept designed by Zaha Hadid Architects and developed by the Italian superyacht builder Rossinavi. Inspired by the fluidity and dynamism of ocean waves the sleek 144-foot (44-metre) craft has been created to showcase the company’s commitment to green technology.

Built in aluminium this jewel on the water features three levels of solar panels to allow for fully electric navigation on a day trip and and 70% of the time in full-electric mode during transatlantic crossings; its energy consumption is managed via artificial intelligence. Rossinavi estimates this allows it to save approximately 44 tons of CO2 emissions compared to a conventional yacht.

When the yacht is not in use it can be used as a mobile power source; hook it up to your remote island retreat and it’ll provide enough power for a family villa on land.

Flowing lines characterize the ship’s interiors, as well, Oneiric has space for ten passengers and seven crew, with an owners’ cabin and four guest cabins. The yacht offers multiple lounges and dining areas, as well as an elegant media room with entertainment technologies.

Oneiric catamaran will be officially presented to the public during Milan Design Week, Via Tortona 27 starting June 6 at the Fuorisalone exhibit “BLUe, The Underwater Experience.”
