ELECTRIC CLIPPER 180
— Electric Clipper 180 – 24 and 180 – 36
— A zero carbon cargo schooner for the 21st century in two versions with a cargo capacity of up to 850 tonnes or 36 TEUs. Provisional specifications.
— Room for 12 guests in beautifully appointed cabin suites.
— Full width sheet tracks and gaff vangs set the sails just so, and downwind the studding sails sheeted out to windward help to power her up to 17 knots if you’re game.
— There’s a new ship’s boat – flexible, fast and fit for purpose – a whaler for the 21st century.
— There’s solar wherever it’s feasible and canted dagger boards in Vesconite sleeves damp the roll and sharpen upwind performance.
— Pitch damping and anti-friction devices, stabilizers and a NACA shaped dovetail sectioned keel are also planned.
— With a crew of up to 12 she is a smart, versatile ship for feeder, short sea or ocean routes.
— Development continues but the foundations are sound and we are encouraged to progress to digitalisation and optimisation.
