    Code X Yacht

    Code X

    Code X
    Solar and Formula 1 engines unite two worlds in one boat, this is the Code-X Yacht. It is a 47¡ä 7¡± catamaran can either be thrust along at a brisk 80 knots by twin Ilmor formula one engines, delivering a hefty 710hp a piece, or at a more leisurely 9 knots by the twin electric motors. These can provide up to two hours of service when running off the lithium batteries and when they run dry there is also the option of continuing for an unlimited period using power generated by the catamaran¡¯s on-board solar panels. It also includes touch screen control, a Kevlar/carbon shell with phototropic-shaded screens and windows and a GPS-controlled ¡®virtual anchor¡¯ system that utilises the electric motors to maintain a stationary position regardless of wind or currents.
    Note: Code X is based in Meggen on the shores of Lake Lucerne in Switzerland.
