Rossinavi unveils its first hybrid-electric yacht

“Seawolf X” is the first hybrid-electric yacht from Italian shipbuilder Rossinavi. The new build has now been launched.

The exterior design of the hybrid-electric catamaran was created by Fulvio De Simoni Yacht Design, while New York-based Meyer Davis Studio is responsible for the interior design. The Rossinavi yacht bears the BluE label, indicating environmentally friendly solutions on board.

According to the shipyard, the most important technical features of the “Seawolf X” include the following three performance scenarios:

  • On one-day trips, the catamaran can run 100% in electric mode.
  • On multi-day voyages, the catamaran can sail 90% of the time in electric mode.
  • On transatlantic voyages, the catamaran can sail the Atlantic 80% of the time in electric mode.

The hibernation mode, activated when the catamaran docks, reduces consumption to a minimum and, according to Rossinavi, allows the energy generated to be returned to the quay or a private property. The propulsion system also includes two diesel generators, which can quickly recharge the batteries. Thanks to Rossinavi’s AI technology, the yacht can be fully recharged in just five hours.

Rossinavi relies on artificial intelligence

The artificial intelligence on board, known as Rossinavi AI, was developed by the Italian shipyard itself. The aim was to improve comfort and maximize the yacht’s green potential. The artificial intelligence constantly analyzes the operation of the ship, learns from observations, and predicts the needs of guests on board. The AI is also in constant dialog with crew members, advising them on environmentally friendly behavior and guiding them towards conscious cruising.

The result is error-free and seamless navigation tailored to the needs of the guests on board. The AI software also monitors the battery to keep it within a range of 20 to 80%, which is the ideal range to ensure a longer battery life.

In its quest for sustainability, the Fulvio De Simoni Yacht Design team has integrated solar panels into the vessel to maximize energy recovery. Additionally, the efficiency of the hull has been improved through the development of lightweight solutions, including an innovative anchor installation.

“We wanted to design the boat of the future that is not bound by convention, but still achievable with cutting-edge technology and minimal environmental impact,” says Fulvio De Simoni, founder of Fulvio De Simoni Yacht Design.

Rossinavi’s BluE philosophy

In 2022, Rossinavi prioritized the environmental sustainability of its ship designs. BluE stands for hybrid-electric yachts powered by batteries and solar cells. In electric mode, the yachts can run on up to 100% electricity during day trips. The solar cells absorb sunlight during the day and convert it into energy using photovoltaic technology. This energy is then stored in batteries.
