Nemesis Yachts has launched a 332-feet futuristic hydrofoil catamaran design – world’s fastest luxury foiling yacht, able to break the 50 knots speed barrier, while flying on computer-controlled hydrofoils. The all carbon fibre Nemesis One has futuristic, yet comfortable interiors and looks more like a stealth fighter jet, than a conventional sailing yacht.

The sailing yacht is powered by Ayro’s patented ‘Oceanwings’ wing sail and has been engineered for top performance by French multihull experts VPLP Design. Contrary to being a stripped out racing vessel, the all carbon fibre Nemesis One has futuristic, yet comfortable interiors.

The excessive speeds the sailing yacht is capable of under sail, required the Nemesis team to completely abandon the classic operating concept of ‘Pulling lines and handling sails.’ To further minimise crew requirements, the team has implemented state-of-the-art hydraulic and electric controls throughout the design, replacing bulky winches in the size of a car’s tire and line cluttered cockpits, commonly conceived when thinking of large sailing yachts.

One of the design’s cornerstones is the fully autonomous Ayro Oceanwings wing sail, powering the Nemesis One. The wing automatically adjusts its angle of attack, camber and twist, eliminating any need for manual sail trimming. Additionally, the reef and furlable wing sail is 2.6 times more efficient than a conventional sail plan of equal size. But flying on water at speeds in excess of 50 knots, leaving most performance motor yachts in her wake, does not compromise security and comfort. Nemesis One is being equipped with the latest generation of smart LiDar (laser radar) sensors, precisely capturing the yachts surroundings. The current sea state, especially wave height, shape and frequency, will be live monitored by LiDar as well.

All the data will be processed by the yacht’s mainframe and translated into precise control commands for the automated hydrofoils and rudders, making the yacht stable and safe at any given speed. The Nemesis One offers the unique option to exchange the port and starboard facing living modules, for ones with different interior configurations. Making it a breeze to transform the interior layout from owner to charter setup for example. To boost its performance even further, both modules can also be completely removed, transforming the already very fast yacht into ‘Ultra-Light Race Mode’ configuration.

Even without wind, Nemesis One will remain a zero emission vessel. Powered by a retractable hydrogen-electric propulsion, the yacht has no need for any fossil fuel. In addition to the hydrogen fuel, up to 750 sqm / 8073 sqft of solar panels, will generate up to 150kW of power, to recharge the yacht’s batteries.
