AQUANIMA CONCEPT

Solar electric yachts form a new class of their own. They offer an unprecedented sailing experience in perfect symbiosis with the ocean. They combine the silence of sails with the convenience of engines. Their propulsive energy is harvested from the sun and stored in a high capacity battery bank turning our yachts into mobile solar power plants with minimal maintenance requirements. Catamarans have been used for millennia around our planet for their unique characteristics: vast decks, high efficiency, great stability inducing limited sea motion discomfort and low draft allowing to reach otherwise inaccessible areas and supreme handling. Marrying solar electric propulsion and catamaran design represents the quintessence of modern yacht design and invites you to a new world of limitless eco-sailing experiences, day and night and as far as you want to go! Our Aquanima Catamarans are yachts packed with ongoing innovation. The Azura Marine energy management system lets you master your yacht at a finger touch and enjoy the full potential of this powerhouse. Thanks to her unequaled solar roof power and impressive energy storage capacity, you can enjoy comfort levels only found on much larger yachts while being free of refueling logistics burdens and heavy costs. Set your destination, sit back, relax and let your Aquanima take you there with a complete peace of mind!

EVOLUTION PACKAGE

Upon her acquisition, a conventional yacht immediately starts aging whilst your Aquanima will only keep getting better throughout her life! With our unique “Evolution Package”, we regularly upgrade both the software and the hardware of your Aquanima as more efficient technology becomes available. You sail, we make sure your yacht is always state-of-the-art! At Azura Marine, we strive to design and build evolutionary yachts applying cutting-edge technologies to offer the most enjoyable experience onboard. Our R&D department currently develops an Artificial Intelligence powered Skipper Assistant and a Dynamic Positioning system rendering anchoring obsolete.

The Aquanima 45 is our flagship. Built in aluminum, with a deck of 100 m2, a speed of up to 12 knots and a range of 120 nautical miles over 24 hours, she is ready to take you and your crew to dreamy destinations in complete silence and an unrivaled level of comfort. The Aquanima 45 is designed for round the clock offshore sailing with 8 people.

The new dive and exploration boat generation is here! The Aquanima 35 Solar Electric Catamaran, the ultimate dive and exploration eco-boat! No pollution, no fuel, no noise, no fumes, no maintenance, no operation costs. The time has come to reunite with the ocean we treasure!

You love the Ocean and it gives it back to you tenfold. You are privileged to visit the Earth’s most exquisite marine paradises for your passion or because you live off them. However, unwillingly and inevitably, somehow you are biting the feeding hand. Why? The boats that faithfully bring you to the most admirable and sometimes remote sites do have an important environmental impact. This is easily observable in those areas with high tourist density where dozens of boats are idling around or sailing full throttle up and down to bring more people to the treasured dive sites. In those areas, coral reefs perish fast and marine life vanishes over time. In many countries, these boats are powered by old engines often leaking oil into the sea, releasing thick smoke into the atmosphere and even those using more modern outboard engines release 100% of their exhaust gases through water, leaving oil trails in their wake. What’s more, the noise and smell emitted by these engines are often sickening and spoil the experience of what could be the boat ride of a lifetime. Lastly, boats used to reach dive sites or touring some of the most magnificent areas are more often than not, narrow, uncomfortable and packed. At the end of a heavy diving day, we feel fatigued and a little dizzy. Against our values and against our intentions, every time we take a boat trip we pollute and damage the very eco-systems we came to admire.

Imagine that one day boats could be clean, silent, spacious and also have so much power onboard that you could refill up to two dive tanks per hour, recharge your cameras, underwater thrusters or watch and edit immediately your photos on a big screen. Imagine boats using sun energy as a fuel, sailing every single day for free. Imagine boats for which anchoring is a thing of the past because they are equipped with a dynamic positioning system locking the position of the boat on her GPS coordinates. Lowering and lifting the anchor would be as easy as pressing a button…and there would never be a worry about damaging corals with your anchor or seeing the boat drift away and having to anchor again. Imagine boats with a huge stern platform to prepare the gear for the dives and that is equipped with an innovative basket to lift the tanks, bcd’s or other equipment effortlessly from the water to the main deck. Imagine boats that glide through the waters silently, letting you immerse once more in the infinite beauty of the ocean while respecting them. Imagine a new realm of union between modern comfort and symbiosis with nature. This day has come! After sailing our prototype “Surya Namaskar” for over 2000 km across Indonesia (Bali to Komodo and back and multiple other voyages), the hardworking and passionate Crew of Azura Marine is proud to present to the World our brand new AQUANIMA (the soul of water) 35. The embodiment of a new class of dive and expedition boat, rendering any other conventional boat completely outdated. A 10 m catamaran with a customizable deck layout with an area in excess of 55 m2, sun lounging and sheltered areas, tons of storage space, big shower, WC, galley, noise-insulated dive tank electric compressors… And most important, solar powered! Capable of up to 100 nautical miles per day, a top speed of 10 knots and a cruising speed of 6 knots, all that with the power of the sun. With the Aquanima 35, your “fuel” tanks are always full, there is no need to bother about fuel and lubricant logistics anymore. No more fumes, no more vibrations, no more oil leaks, bad smells or dirty bilges. A jewel of engineering at your service, the service of your clients and the service of the Oceans. With the Aquanima 35, you only leave solar glitter in your wake! And thanks to its large battery bank, the Aquanima can sail full speed under overcast skies and even sail all through the night (tested and validated with our prototype!). Thanks to our proprietary energy management system, all parameters are constantly monitored and appear live on tablets via Bluetooth. Welcome onboard the next generation of dive and exploration boats!

How much does it cost? Hardly more than a conventional boat with a few powerful outboards at the stern. And since solar power is free, it is FREE to operate your boat EVERY SINGLE DAY. The solar electric technology and the design concept of the Aquanima make them virtually maintenance and operation cost-free. Electrical propulsion involves far less parts in motion than conventional combustion engines, rendering this technology incomparably more reliable and less prone to unpredictable breakdowns. The electric motors are designed for 10,000 running hours without maintenance (after which two mere bearings have to be replaced) and the energy system is designed for 25+ years operation. No propulsion system maintenance, no downtime, no fuel costs… You will never make such a fast return on investment and your ecological boat will be seen as real premium by your customers who increasingly care for the planet and specifically for the ocean! Aquanima 35 – built-in fiberglass or aluminum – is open for order, book yours

The PlakMan is a sea plastic muncher. Just like any of our Aquanima catamarans, this solar-powered floating debris eradicating machine can roam the seas 24/7 leaving nothing but solar glitter in her wake. This is Azura Marine’s response to the increasing marine plastic pollution. We allied our best solar power technology, robust hull design and vast deck areas with plastic collection scoop, compacting and shredding units. Thanks to the abundant electrical power available, while the plastic is brought onboard, it can immediately be sorted, separated and pre-processed in order to reduce its volume and increase its value on the recycling market. The PlakMan creates a sustainable business model in itself. The more PlakMan will be launched, the more plastic will be removed from the oceans before decomposing into micro-particles and being ingested by marine life and entering the food chain.
