Sauter Carbon Offset Design presents the World’s First Zero Carbon Superyacht Tender - the Emax Solar Hybrid Jet Propelled Tender.

The Emax Solar Hybrid Jet Propelled Tender is powered by twin CMD TDI V6’s coupled to GM Allison Hybrid Transmissions. Each 450hp Diesel Electric Power Plant is revolutionary in the fact that it weighs no more than its gasoline equivalents while consuming 40% less fuel!

When employed as a Zero Carbon ship-to-shore Shuttle the Emax Super Marine 45 relies on a 32KWh Lithium UPS to propel the Solar Hybrid boat at up to 25 knots in virtually silent electric mode. Push the throttles full ahead and the infinitely variable transmission kicks into low gear engaging the V6’s and loading the Hi-Torque RR Waterjets to deliver unsurpassed acceleration.

Once on a plane the transmission selects the most economical rpm for the load at all speeds up to 80 knots.

Available from Ned Ship Group the 900hp (1160 ft.lbs of torque) Carbon Epoxy Super Marine 45 is the fastest most powerful tender in the world. Even so she is 50 to 100% Greener than other tenders in her class, due to her Solar Hybrid Propulsion and the ability to store and use energy harnessed from her 4KW Photo Voltaic SunPower Solbian array.

The Emax Super Marine 45 utilizes Allison’s Hybrid technology, a dual mode (Series & parallel EVT) Electrically Variable Transmission that delivers the highest level of economy with the best performance. This system with years of proven reliability from Arctic to sub tropical environments is employed in thousands of Hybrid buses the world over as well as the GM fleet of Hybrid pickup trucks, the Hybrid Cadillac Escalade and surprisingly the Hybrid Bluetec S Class Mercedes Benz.

Allison’s global leadership in Hybrid Technology is underpinned by the more than $300 million dollars that they and Remy have received in US DOE grants to develop this system.

Whether shuttling passengers and supplies back and forth or embarking on an exhilarating adventure, the luxurious teak decked Super Marine 45 can seat up to 10 people, plus 4 sunbathers on the sun bed. Inside the cabin beneath the Solar Center Cockpit she provides a shower room with stand up head and a sumptuous double bed. For excursions there’s a kitchenette with fridge/freezer, stove, microwave and a foredeck table for setting out a buffet or having a sit down luncheon for six guests.

Richard Sauter Head of Design commented 'With a top speed of 80 knots, no other Superyacht tender compares to this upper echelon of performance combined with luxury, style and versatility.'

As a jet propelled Zero Carbon recreational watercraft she is the safest and by far the most Eco Friendly boat of her kind.

The EPA estimates that registered recreational boats in the USA produce a staggering 330 million metric tons of CO2 per year. Switching from gasoline to Emax Solar Hybrid propulsion can reduce that figure by over 50% thereby reducing 'global warming pollution' by more than a 160 million metric tons per year.
