Eco-minded luxury yacht lovers are undoubtedly eyeing the Code-X-Yacht; a hybrid catamaran which according to Code-X, “unites radical purism, the optimal benefit of renewable energy and the sheer power of a racing machine in one boat.” The yacht, built by Switzerland-based Code-X, is powered by two Ilmor Marine 710 horsepower V10 Formula 1 engines, along with a bank of solar cells that store power in on-board lithium ion batteries.

The yacht moves at an unimpressive nine knots when powered solely by solar energy, but it speeds up to 90 knots (with a 90 kilometer range) when petroleum is added into the mix. Code-X doesn’t skimp on the yacht’s luxury details. The two-bed yacht contains a Kevlar/carbon fiber hull, a canopy that tilts up to the rear swim deck, and a hot tub. Code-X only divulges the yacht’s pricing with an application; and we imagine this type of smooth sailing comes with a hefty price tag.
