Pierrejean’s Solar-Powered LOU+LOU Yacht Cruises the Seven Seas
Posted By Laura K. Cowan On June 20, 2011 @ 2:00 pm In Green Transportation,Innovation | 1 Comment
A new yacht  designed by Pierrejean Design Studios  is taking green technology to the high seas. The LOU+LOU uses solar panels  and a hybrid technology called “electrical motorization pools” to cruise completely silently up to 8 knots with a top speed of 25 knots. The technology is still in the experimental stage and is under wraps for now, but we love the idea that a yacht designer would create their own green technology  for a custom craft like this one.
The LOU+LOU focuses on relaxation and tranquility inspired by nature : the five-deck boat is designed to be a floating spa that can endure a wide range of climates – from the hot Persian Gulf to cold northern temperatures. Other details we love include an aquarium integrated into the swimming pool and large underwater windows that link passengers directly to the sea itself.
