SunCat 58 is not only a solar passenger ship, that can transport up to 60 people- it also redefines the words navigation or shipping. SunCat 58 doesn’t travel over water, it glides across the water surface, since SunCat 58 is as silent as a sailboat. Best of all, no environmentally damaging emissions occur.
With a length of nearly 18 meters and a width of close to 7m, SunCat 58 is powered by two very efficient electric motors. With these two machines the catamaran can reach a top speed of up to 15 km/h. The solar modules installed on the roof guarantee unlimited travel time as soon as there is sun. But even without sun – the vessel can travel up to 10 hours non- stop due highly efficient batteries.
Not only is SunCat 58 a technical marvel, but also a very relaxed location for a variety of occasions. Inside the interior offers lounge ambience and provides space for around 30 passengers. SunCat 58 can be used as a passenger ship, ferry or charter boat.
Berlins major Klaus Wowereit baptized the first vessel of this make in August 2009. It was named Solon. This boat can be chartered from Schiffskontor for a variety of occasions.
