COBOAT, THE COWORKING CATAMARAN TO BE POWERED BY OCEANVOLT
"Oceanvolt is pleased to work with Coboat team on this project to make an ecological and self-sustainable propulsion solution for the Coboat catamaran. Althought Oceanvolt has made several SEA – Silent Electric Autonomy - systems for catamarans earlier, this project is especially interesting and technically challenging with 4 x Oceanvolt SD15 electric motors. In addition to propulsion, the Coboat should receive up to 16 kw of regeneration power when the motors are used as generators under sails – this is the first time ever when such a high amount of hydro energy is created on leisure boats." – Timo Jaakkola, CEO, Oceanvolt
Coboat is an 82 feet retrofitted Nautitech 82 sailing catamaran and floating coworking space. Circumnavigating the globe and exploring uncharted waters, Coboat will be home and office for up to 12 digital nomads as they collectively set out on a sea-faring adventure combining life, work and play. Launching in Spring 2016, Coboat will be the very first coworking space on the water.
