Code-X Hybrid Luxury Yacht: Renewable Energy; Extreme Power
Until recently, a green lifestyle didn't include many options for boating or water recreation. Now we have solar-powered and electric watercraft, like those available from Buffalo Solar Boats, and the new emissions-free electric jetski that should be on the market by next year. But for true luxury, as well as extreme power, Code-X has combined the unsurpassed speed of Formula 1 engines with clean, renewable solar energy for the ultimate eco-yacht.
Who is Code-X?
Code-X AG was founded with the goal to produce exclusive products that make the best use of renewable energy without sacrificing high-end performance. Based on Lake Lucerne in Meggan, Switzerland, Code-X aims to go "far beyond the common perception of luxury goods". The Code-X yacht proves to do just that.
Luxury, Speed, and Eco-Responsibility
Aside from the sleek, futuristic design, The Code-X solar powered boat is loaded with the luxury features you would expect from a high-end yacht. Kevlar and carbon fiber compromise the boat's hull, while 2 beds make it an ideal weekender yacht. The Code-X also features a swim deck in the rear and, of course, an onboard hot tub.
The Code-X yacht doesn't skimp on performance either - boasting two 710-horsepower, V-10 Formula 1 engines. These powerful motors operate on nonrenewable fossil fuels and provide extreme speeds of up to 90 knots. While these engines may not sound too eco-friendly, the Code-X combines the petrol-based power with a bank of solar panels - offering a clean, emissions-free option for coastal areas and occupied inlets.
