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.
Paul was born in the UK and grew up sailing and racing boats since the age of four. He was brought up dingy sailing and successfully campaigned many highly competitive seasons in dinghy classes. It seems only natural with such a love for the ocean that Paul wanted to obtain further qualifications to match his experience and establish a career as a captain.
Since then, Paul has been captaining boats for 17 years and has sailed all around the world, from the U.S. East Coast to the Caribbean, South Pacific and the Mediterranean.
One of the highlights was winning Best in Show at the British Virgin Islands charter yacht show in 2011. With this vast knowledge, he is sure to take you on a unique sailing adventure!
Having studied Watersports Activity Leadership at Falmouth Marine School and holding his MCA Yacht-Master Offshore, Paul will take good care of you no matter where your sailing adventures might take you. His passion for watersports can provide unique assistance in diving, wakeboarding, tubing, and snorkeling.

Hailing from Virginia Beach, VA, Amanda was born and raised by the sea, and introduced to the water at an early age at her grandparents’ lake house and also sailing the Chesapeake on her uncle’s sloop. This inspired her to take to a life on the sea after college brought her to Florida. She has spent the last five years working on sailing catamarans, which have taken her from the U.S. East Coast across the Atlantic, through the Med, and feeling at home in ports all across the Caribbean.
All the while she developed her love of cooking and refined her culinary knowledge a few years back at the Ashburton Chef’s Academy in Devon, England.
She is passionate about healthy and delicious meals, trying to source only the best ingredients from local and organic sources. Her creative flair is always present working with what is available to provide comforting, wholesome, and satisfying fare with island infusions, and exciting flavors from different parts of the world. With knowledge of vegan and raw food traditions, stepping out of the box is easy for her to do. Although, catering traditional meals in a nutritious and delicious way is what she enjoys best!
As a PADI Rescue Diver, and watersports enthusiast, Amanda loves to encourage her guests in the water be it snorkeling, paddleboarding, wakeboarding, or kayaking! Her kind and gentle demeanor makes it easy for her to understand what guests need and want to make their vacation exemplary, all while they relax onboard in between unforgettable meals, sunsets, and their favorite sundowners!

Anna comes from a picturesque sailing town of Saint Malo, Brittany, France. It is there where she spent her formative years sailing and boating around the small islands in the area.
She started her professional career in the restaurant industry in France and England and then decided to move from land to sea four years ago while following her passion for adventure and exploration.
Since 2019 Anna has worked as a deckhand and stewardess onboard tall ships, yachts and catamarans in the Caribbean and Mediterranean.
Anna holds a French coastal boating licence, deck rating certification and is a qualified lifeguard. She is an avid hiker and passionate snorkeler so when she's not on board you'll likely to find her beneath the waves snorkeling or roaming through the jungle.
