ARCHINAUTE

Development of a third way of navigation using wind energy as main power source for the ship.
Using a wind turbine allows to sail directly into the wind and generally speaking provides operational capabilities quite similar to those of a motor boat.

Sectors of Activity:
Shipbuilding (excl. leisure boats) and ship repair
Funding other:

First step with mediatic partnership with a group of sponsors

Objective:

First step : build a prototype about 40 feet long - trimaran based - to demonstrate the potential of the principle.
