Italian designer Pierpaolo Lazzrini introduces yet another innovative watercraft called the ‘pagurus’ or the ‘crabmaran’. formed as a 25-meter long amphibious catamaran, the newly designed vessel uses solar power to make its way through water and land.
Pagurus is a 25-meter (82-foot) solar-powered hybrid catamaran that can accommodate a total of 8 guests and 4 crew members. Living spaces are available in the two side hulls, in two or three rooms on each side, with kitchen and bathrooms.
Sailing propulsion is achieved with dual stern drive propellers, coupled with twin 890hp diesel engines, capable to move the ‘pagurus’ to an estimated top speed of 24 knots. in the immersed part of the yacht, the hulls are designed with a recessed space that guests two steel cylinders on each side, each one with a helical spiral flange like the thread of a screw. With the help of water friction, the screw cylinders generate energy to recharge the yacht batteries while sailing. Each cylinder is interconnected to an independent engine, which is connected to a trans fluid transmission and is able to generate motion in water (5 knots), along with simultaneous energy.
