Dragonship 25 is a 25m-luxury trimaran with an environmental prerogative. A PI Yachts subsidiary, Hydrogenisis, will be showcasing its new Blue Box technology on board.
Blue Box is a patented system that will extract hydrogen from acidified seawater for use in a hydrogen production generator, making the vessel self-sustainable with regards to energy production and usage. CO2 production by means of land, air and sea has resulted in the heavy acidification of the oceans and Blue Box technology may be one more step towards righting some greenhouse wrongs.
Another significant technological addition to the Dragonship 25 is the Jack Manners-Spencer designed Autosail. Supported by a single fully rotating carbon mast the sail requires no external running gear. Its spitfire wing shape offers style and performance and the solar panelled sails help further reduce any carbon footprint.
At 80 metres the Dragonship 80 sistership accommodates 12 guests and 17 crew and at 55 metres shorter, Dragonship 25 still houses 10 guests, however only four crew are required to maintain the significantly smaller vessel. Her master stateroom may be found in the main hull with fixed port lights in the transom. Four ensuite guest rooms are situated on the main deck with the two crew cabins located within the amas.
Her compact form has been considered to maximise living space. Dragonship 25 boasts 291 square metres of living space. An open plan aft cockpit, salon and flybridge include large dining and lounge areas as well as port and starboard helm stations. An extended deck accommodates a 5.2 metre tender and hydraulic crane.
