Turkish Yacht designer Aras Kazar reveals Noy electric trimaran concept
Powered by solar and electric propulsion, the Aras Kazar Noy electric trimaran concept was developed with the biblical inspirations of Noah’s Ark. The announcement of Noy follows the 150m Ono from earlier this year.
“My designs have always been minimalist and futuristic,” said Kazar. “I love sharp edges rather than lots of curves. I got inspired by Noah’s Ark. I wanted to design something unique and almost indestructible even.
With the benefits of hydrofoil technology, the Aras Kazar Noy electric trimaran concept will be able to hit max speeds of 24 knots while lowering drag and increasing its efficiency, allowing it to withstand powerful winds and overpower large waves. Aluminum would be used to construct the hull, and fiberglass and tempered glass would be combined to create its superstructure.
“The flatness and the extreme width combined with the hydrofoil technology means this massive trimaran will always stand,” Kazar added.
Due to the 76m beam and the abundance of glass in the bulkheads and overheads, Kazar imagined the trimaran to have 360-degree vistas. For a crew of 16, there are six guest cabins and three master cabins available. Features onboard include an indoor and outdoor pool as well as an area for a gym, sauna, and Zen garden. Additional features include a theater room and a swim platform on the aft deck balcony.
Solar panels installed on the metallic roof of the trimaran produce clean, green energy to run the onboard amenities and electric motors. This means the Aras Kazar Noy electric trimaran concept could freely and effectively sail off the grid.
