Photos taken by Peter Nieuwstraten. Project Solar or Y712 is designed by Nuvolari Lenard and will

feature a DynaRig and have the ability to operate entirely on solar power. She is the largest sailing

megayacht ever built in Holland. At the moment there are two large sailing yachts inside the Alblasserdam

shed: 85m (279 ft) Y711, and this new Y712. When the new drydock is completed in late 2014, the casco

of 110m (361 ft) motoryacht project Y714 will be the third yacht under construction at the yard.


Also it will be interesting to see how Nuvolari Lenard have solved integrating the radars and sat com

domes into the overall design. On Maltese Falcon there is quite a large mast near the bow with all that

equipment. Y712 or “project Solar” will probably be launched late 2015 and delivered spring 2016

Price / cost:  175 million euros  (Estimate based on her volume / Gross Tonnage of 2,700 GT, and lots of clean energy

producing high tech features, her dynarig, software and large battery packs / hybrid propulsion systems)
