An unconventional hull has been engineered on the Enea electric catamaran concept
London-based designer Sebastiano Canto has unveiled his brand new Enea electric catamaran concept that uses an unconventional hull aimed to improve the boat’s efficiency at sail. As a result, the Enea has less lateral wind resistance and is lighter than its predecessor without sacrificing seakeeping performance.
Not only does that increase the catamaran’s maneuverability, but it also greatly enhances its personality. Due to the fact that the Enea electric catamaran concept will be powered by two Yamaha Harmo electric motors, each of which produces 3.4 kW or 10 horses, it’ll also consume less energy than its beefier, holeless competition.
Canto emphasizes that reduced weight and water resistance allows for more efficiency. Without making noise or emitting any pollution, the catamaran can hit eight knots, though no mention of the expected range has been confirmed.
The Enea has a beam of slightly over eight feet and provides a respectable amount of interior space. Customers can completely design the deck and add clever modular furnishings to make the most of the available area. The design depicted in the renderings contains a sizable sunbed that may be used as a dining table. Additionally, the captain’s seat may be turned around to accommodate up to four people.
Additionally, there is a swim platform at the stern that allows for easy access to the water as well as another lounge area up front for especially hardy seafarers.
Sebastiano Canto‘s Enea electric catamaran concept won the design competition at the Venice Boat Show this year, which is evidence of Canto’s talents. At the 2022 NY Product Design Awards, the concept won first place in the Electric Boats category.
