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.
Gio was born and raised in the UK teaching sailing and windsurfing from a young age before travelling to the Mediterranean and the Middle-East. Later on he settled in Australia to study for a degree in marine science, graduating top of his class with 1st class honours. He specialized in underwater acoustics and spent the next two years witnessing the impact of global industry while monitoring marine mammals from seismic survey ships in the offshore oil and gas industry.
Eventually he fulfilled his childhood dream and bought his own 50ft sailboat, using it to lead documentary filmmaking expeditions thousands of miles around the Caribbean and resulting in work published by National Geographic. After four years he sold his boat and moved into the luxury yachting industry where he continued to develop expedition style charter experiences that focus on marine life, photography and film. The latest project involved music playback experiments while swimming with humpback whales.
He is also an expert freediver, kitesurfer, paraglider pilot and a PADI Dive Instructor. In his spare time he enjoys reading non-fiction literature, listening to music and playing his guitar.
Gio finds great fulfilment empowering others to experience the sea, striving to use his background in science and film to create an inspirational and transformative experience for E's guests.
