Ark Angel LSV: The Nature Friendly Luxury Megayacht
Do you like this article?
Designed by Sauter Carbon Offset, this megayacht is a celebration of green technologies, being the fastest and most eco-friendly in its class. With Daimler EPA turbo compound engines, the hybrid vessel, called Ark Angel LSV (Life Support Vessel), amazes with its low fuel consumption and GHG emissions.
We called it a hybrid and here is why: Ark Angel LSV takes its energy from four different renewable sources. Solar cells, MDR, currents and winds. If you add to this some plug-in power, the Lithium-ion batteries will help the vessel go at full speed with zero emissions. Not only that, but all the services inside (five star hotel services, that is) will also be available 24/7.
Even when it doesn’t sail all green, the luxury megayacht boasts impressive emissions and consumption figures: at 28 knots, they are reduced by 50%, when sailing at 18 knots, they are reduced by 75%, and at 14 knots, they are reduced to an impressive 85%. This means that Ark Angel LSV can save some 4,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year. And that really matters!
