CODE-X Solar-Powered Yacht from Switzerland

Jun 10, 2009
This amazing creation is called the Code X Yacht and is considered to be both high-end and eco-friendly motor cruiser. The yacht can reach a speed of 9 knots using twin solar-powered electric engines.

At the same time it is possible to switch from eco-friendliness to traditional twin Ilmor marine combustion engines, each boasting 720hp. Using both engines the yacht can reach a speed of 80 knots. Surely this less environmentally friendly way consumes a lot of fossil fuel, which brings doubts about the "greenness" of the yacht.

Nevertheless the yacht looks really great, with a futuristic design, and a touch of environmental friendliness with the idea of using solar/electric panels to power the machine. Code-X AG, is a company based in Switzerland and its latest creation has one interesting feature - its electric motors can also act as anchors, keeping the yacht stable when it's windy or when there are water currents.
