New Model: Alva Ocean Eco 60 Explorer

Alva Yachts, the German designer and manufacturer of electric floating solutions, has just revealed the new electric catamaran Ocean Eco 60 Explorer.  The Alva Ocean Eco 60 Explorer stands out for it enclosed upper deck which drastically increase the space on board, as it creates a climate-controlled and protected area which can be enjoyed all over the year, even in cold conditions and bad weather.  The layout of Ocean Eco 60 Explorer features large spaces, flooded in light thanks to the glazing and the light hues of the interiors.  The main deck has two wide cockpits outside, one to aft and one in the foredeck. Inside, the large saloon features the galley on the port side, completed by a separate island with bar and stools. In the center there's the dining table for eight, while to starboard a couch complete the layout. The front part is taken by the large L-shaped sofa and freestanding tea table and armchair. A TV pops up from a center cabinet and behind its a round staircase takes to the flybridge, while two side companionways lead to the lower decks.  The Ocean Eco 60 Explorer can be chosen in two different layouts, one sporting three staterooms, with the owner's one taking the whole starboard hull, and one for a charter use, with four cabins. The crew can be accommodated in two or three cabins, for a total of four members in three cabins.  The flybridge can be reached by the mentioned, rounded staircase or by a second one, outside, which connects the cockpit to the upper balcony and the side decks.  Inside, the space is taken by a comfortable double cabin with exceptional view, and by the helm station to fore.  The technical part is shared with the traditional Ocean Eco 60 and features two electric motors and a large battery pack. The batteries are powered by solar panels and by an auxiliary generator, which can be replaced by a hydrogen fuel cell for a completely emission-free yacht. In any case, the battery packs grant enough range for exploring recessed and protected areas without emitting any noise and exhausts. The Explorer versions can also be operated with Hydrogen Cells instead of a fuel generator.
