Turquoise waters expanding out flat, smooth, gleaming mirror-like. Sails down. No wind. No sound apart from the waves gently lapping, as your catamaran glides towards the next dream cove. Discover a world of sailing in silence.
To harness the power of the sun, sea and wind. To create a truly natural and innovative sailing experience. To embark on unique discoveries without the disturbance of shafts turning or generators running. To hear nothing but the beautiful oceanic environment surrounding us. We had a dream to combine that with sumptuous design and refined touches befitting the highest of luxury cruising experiences. Our entrepreneurial spirit, fascination with cutting-edge technology, dedication to performance, safety and efficiency, our care for the environment – and most importantly – our love of sailing, combine to create ‘E’. This is the first luxury eco-catamaran of its kind developed in partnership with Sunreef Yachts.
We’re excited to share our dream with you.
Embark on your first voyage where you can truly enjoy and immerse yourself in your natural surroundings. ‘E’ offers an exclusive luxury sailing experience that runs entirely on an eco-electric propulsion system. Responsible boating, abundant in comfort, elegance and dependable performance. The reality pristine waters. Lungfuls of fresh air. Peaceful stillness. Complete and utter silence…
‘E’’s two high-performance electric engines generate power whilst sailing. The efficient battery bank and solar panels provide enough daily clean energy to sustain all your yacht needs, including the unrivalled comfort of a silent, fast-cooling marine aircon system. ‘E’ sports unique thermoplastic composite sails by innovative French manufacturers Incidence Sails. We promise you a luxury yachting experience onboard ‘E’ – no compromises.
Let us welcome you onto the expansive aft-deck. Indulge your senses over sunset with an aged single-malt sipped from a hand-cut Moser crystal glass. Relax into our Tribù and Dedon designer furniture as we treat you to some of our culinary creations; a bespoke menu specially curated to your tastes, complete with Raynaud fine porcelain, Christofle cutlery and Stölzle Lausitz glassware. Move through the spacious interiors, opulent and sleek in handcrafted and couture detailing: sustainable Burmese teak flooring, Carrara marbles, Missoni fabrics – all complimented by a stylish and soothing palate of black and metallic grey tones. No details left untouched.
With its eco-electric propulsion system, ‘E’ promises sustainable performance sailing, in safety, efficiency, and ultimate comfort. This is the magic and excitement of state-of-the-art sailing; the freedom of the sea, the enjoyment of clean air and peaceful nature, the security of dependable power for unique experiences without leaving a trace. The world is yours to discover.
We want to show that luxury sailing is possible without consuming natural resources. That it can be combined with a gentle care for the environment. We believe in producing our electricity and water from the sun, sea and wind – thanks to our energy efficient propulsion system that runs on rechargeable batteries. We have incorporated reclaimed and recycled materials into our design – all without compromising on style or luxury.
John was born and raised on the coast of Oregon in the US where he developed his passion for the oceans. A very experienced sailor, John is never more at home then at the helm and has sailed across the Mediterranean, North Sea, Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and nearer to his adopted country of England around and across the English Channel.
John’s career has been spent in or around the water including eight years in the United States Coast Guard, where he honed his knowledge of marine safety and security. Upon leaving the military he used his training and entrepreneurial spirit to build and run his own marine electrical business where he designed and developed electrical systems for superyachts and contracted with cruise ship companies, developing an in-depth knowledge of the boating industry.
Moving to London in 2008 he retrained as a landscape and architectural photographer, allowing him to connect with nature and use his skills as a visual craftsman in new ways. During this time he was able to continue sailing, participating and skippering boats in various races around the UK and southern Europe.
John will be taking his many years of experience as a sailor and outdoorsman to the helm of E where will continue to spread the message of marine conservation and responsible tourism, teaching others how to enjoy the best the water has to offer and how to ensure it remains a sustainable resource for future generations.
