Amsterdam-based Isaac Burrough Design unveils their latest project, the Kiwa superyacht concept, which is designed to maximize energy efficient technologies. Starting from the exterior, it features a narrow hull, with a low volume-to-length ratio to lower fuel consumption and improve efficiency, while up top, you’ll find 2,000-square-feet of solar panels.
Kiwa sports a hybrid propulsion system that enables the one to switch to electric-only mode for near silent cruising, and without any emissions or fumes. As solar and battery technology advance, the electric-only mode will be extended from just a few hours to near unlimited range. There’s room for up to 14 guests and 29 crew, thanks to an expansive main deck with cantilevered glass-bottomed pool, a sundeck boasting elevated 360-degree views, as well as 1,800-square-feet of storage space for all your gadgets.
- 25000mAh Massive Capacity: The high capacity solar panel charger enables to power up an iPhone 12 for 8 times, or a Samsung S21 for 6 times or a tablet for 3 times after once fully recharged. And it can provide power about 1 week.
- 4 Foldable Solar Panels: With 4 high-performance portable solar panels, the charging speed of battery charger is 4X faster than that of single panel. Besides, the foldable design makes it convenient to hang on your backpack when outdoors.
- 2.1A Power Delivery: This solar battery pack with dual 2.1A USB A output ports allows you to charge 2 devices simultaneously, reducing charging time. High power output design enables the portable solar charger to quickly charge your phone 0%-50% within 30 minutes.
The intention for Kiwa was to design a yacht that is both modern and elegant. Her sleek silhouette combined with curvaceous surfaces gives grace despite her exploration capabilities. A yacht that will look sophisticated whether cruising the Mediterranean or the Arctic,” said Burrough.
