The Dixon Yacht Design Juno concept utilizes a hybrid-propulsion system
Renderings of the Dixon Yacht Design Juno concept have been revealed and they show a unique crossover approach that brings the best designs from both motor yachts and sailing yachts. According to the company, she will have a waterline length of over 100 meters and a hull speed of 23 knots.
To increase sailing opportunities and decrease sailing efforts, Falcon Rigs were used on the Dixon Yacht Design Juno concept. This vessel may be directed and operated single handedly by one person, unlike the usual rig, which needs a sizable crew.
Triple rigs ensure an exciting sailing experience and provide a good sail area to displacement ratio. Additionally, the ship is equipped with outstanding technical equipment, including an energy recovery system that uses the motor propellers to generate electricity while the ship is sailing and an cutting-edge hybrid propulsion system that optimizes the use of energy onboard.
Other features of the Dixon Yacht Design Juno concept include a 26-foot swimming pool aft, gym, sauna, and a theater. A beach club space with opening side shell doors is accessible via the open transom and bathing platform. A tender platform has also been installed, providing access to the main deck lobby.
Juno will be built in accordance with the Passenger Yacht Code and provides accommodations for guests on four decks. With a spacious interior including an owner’s suite and eight guest staterooms, the design offers the owner a private deck.
“This is a future-proof statement yacht, for a customer who is not afraid to do something different,” said Dixon Yacht Design in a statement. “It defies sailing convention but not the sailing experience.”
