Searide 66, a hydrogen-powered, anti-covid and AI custom luxury Catamaran

The London-based company Searide International has unveiled the new and revolutionary Luxury Cruiser. Called Searide 66, this elegant and modern catamaran is 100% eco-friendly with zero-emission, green-hydrogen powered, anti-covid, assisted by artificial intelligence for sailing autonomy.

The Searide 66 is fully equipped to function as a true 500 square-meter houseboat, with a length of 24 meters, an oversized aft platform of 4 meters, and a beam of 11 meters. It offers a 100 square meter crystal seeing the main deck, a configurable number of rooms for (up to 6) suites, gym or office room, invitees’ bathroom, and crew cabins.

The catamaran generates its own 40 kWh renewable energy thanks to the combination of supercell solar panels, helicoidal wind turbines, and hydraulic turbines. The two units to be presented are Hydrogen-Powered, equipped with their own PEM system to produce green hydrogen, stock it, and convert this hydrogen into electricity through an advanced fuel-cell, powering two electric engines of 400 kW (548 hp in each hull).

The Searide 66 uses only water-based paints and varnish as well as recyclable materials, avoiding chemical particles contaminating the sea ecosystem. The Artificial Intelligence Navigation (AIAN) is used to make this boat simple to drive and maintain by connecting to the weather system and a complete set of sensors in the boat in order to calculate the safest and efficient route, control both engines and automated sails and navigate autonomously to the selected destination. Most of the functionalities of the boat can be managed by a smart voice interface and remote control.

Inside the catamaran, all the elements have been adapted to be “Anti-Covid.” All surfaces were designed according to the protocols of the intensive care units of the German health agency, like the application of Nano-Technology antivirus surfaces and the inclusion of individuals AC air purifiers with HEPA filtration same as used in aviation.
