Nemesis Yachts has unveiled a 101m luxury foiling catamaran concept designed to travel at tremendous velocity and provide the comfort of a superyacht. Photo: Nemesis YachtsNemesis One has been touted as potentially being the fastest luxury hydrofoil yacht in the world as she would theoretically travel at a top speed of over 50 knots and a cruising speed of 35 knots.Photo: Nemesis YachtsIn an attempt to minimise crew requirements and increase the comfort of Nemesis One, state of the art hydraulic and electrical controls have been integrated into the design. As a result of her integrated autonomous design, the Nemesis One concept achieves minimalism by getting rid of bulky winches and cluttered lines.Photo: Nemesis YachtsPhoto: Nemesis YachtsPhoto: Nemesis YachtsPhoto: Nemesis YachtsThe design uses AYRO’s patented ‘Oceanwings’ sails, and VPLP Design’s multihull expertise to ensure high-performance. The Oceanwings adjust their angle of attack, camber and twist, eliminating the need for manual trimming. The wing sail is both automatically reefable and furlable and is 2.6 times more efficient than a conventional sail plan of equal size.Photo: Nemesis YachtsPhoto: Nemesis YachtsThe Nemesis One is designed as a zero-emission vessel, even without wind power. Powered by a retractable hydrogen-electric propulsion setup, the yacht will use hydrogen fuel rather than traditional fossil fuels. Additionally, up to 750 square-metres of solar panels will recharge the yacht’s batteries.

This information will be translated into pinpoint control commands for the automated hydrofoils and rudders to ensure the stability and safety of the superyacht.

Both modules can also be removed to allow for an ultra-light racing configuration.Photo: Nemesis Yachts
