Edward Green |
PI Super Yachts launched their new Dragonship 25, a luxury Trimaran with innovative Hydrogenisis Blue Box technology, electric propulsion and the unique Autosail with built in solar PV technology.

At 25m the Dragonship 25 comes in a more compact format, but with the same innovative power and ecological technology that embodies the Dragonship range. There is currently no luxury Trimaran like the Dragonship 25m on the market and the bespoke product offers a total of 291 square meters of sumptuous luxury living space and incorporates the very latest technology. The Dragonship 25 is designed to comfortably accommodate ten guests and four crew members for extended cruising.

The master stateroom is situated in the main hull with fixed portlights in the transom. Four ensuite guest staterooms are situated on the main deck, while the twin crew cabins are situated in the amas. Huge salon and dining areas with further dining at the aft cockpit and flybridge which has port and starboard helm stations. An extended deck accommodates a 5.2m tender and hydraulic crane. Each ama houses a lazarette with fold-down swim platform aft, which offers the perfect spot for water sports fun or simply a place to store water toys.

The Dragonship 25 is carbon free, Hydrogenisis Blue Box technology powering electric propulsion and solar PV panels on the coach roof and integrated into the Autosail wingsail. This of course means zero carbon fuels, zero emissions and nearly silent when running on full power, offering owners a truly ethical sailing experience with zero impact on the environment. The Autosail rig, a wing sail that will work in synch with prevailing wind conditions, so that sailing is simplified.

Pi Super Yachts is in the final stages of funding for the production of the Dragonship 25, which he expects to be completed in 2016. The company has also created plans for a 263-foot trimaran called the Dragonship 80, a three-masted vessel that features the Autosail and hydrogenesis systems, as well as a folding-wing keel that narrows its width for entering ports. Like its 82-foot sibling, it is designed to be completely emissions-free and self-sufficient.
