IY Open60AAL Innovation Yachts

The IY Open60AAL – which was designed, developed and built by Innovation Yachts – will deliver ultimate proof of quality, safety, functionality and durability of the Innovation Yachts philosophy.

It’s being built using fully sustainable and recyclable materials and the project will test to the limits “real” boat building solutions – such as recyclable composites, harmless matrix systems and natural core materials.

No fossil fuel ! The IY Open60AAL is fully electric with two electric engines acting also as hydro generators to generate power while sailing.
Energy is also generated by solar panels and both sources allow the IY Open60AAL to be energy self-sufficient.
