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.
