Meet AQUON ONE, a smart and solar catamaran powered by fuel cells

The yachting company Fraser Yachts has unveiled its new 64-foot catamaran powered by the eco-friendly fuel alternative. The new AQUON ONE is a smart and solar catamaran yacht powered by fuel cells offering true independence at sea.

AQUON ONE comes with a holistic approach – combining modern comfort, performance with innovative green technologies for sustainable cruising sans noise and emissions. Designed by Christian Grande and built by Latitude Yachts, the ‘Pocket Superyacht’ is designed, built, and finished to the very highest of standards.

The superyacht will be fitted with 64 square meters of solar panels on the roof of the flybridge that will allow it to harness its own renewable energy. The renewable solar energy will then be used to create green hydrogen fuel to power the two electric motors and the onboard amenities. AQUON ONE has an estimated top speed of 16 knots (30 km/h). It offers silent cruising without either noise or fumes from the engines or generators while furnishing energy to all other onboard devices and off-grid for several days.

The hydrogen-powered catamaran accommodates up to 8 guests in a 4-stateroom arrangement but is also offered in a two or three cabin layout. The main deck houses a large living room and dining room, and the lower deck is dedicated to the guest cabins.

In addition, the eco-friendly interior features a range of sustainable materials, such as light bamboo and recycled leather. The LED lights can be controlled from your phone, and the staterooms can be customized with different-sized beds and ensuites.

The AQUON ONE hydrogen-powered vessel is priced at €6 million and is set for delivery in 2023.
