Hybrid marine technological improvement is one of the best systems that compromise between sun and wind powers by reducing CO2 almost to zero during sailing. The system also contributes to renewable energy by using sailing, as well as, solar power and wind energy in seaworthy manners. Future Transportation is a fascinating compilation of material and energy which explores and defines the way the future is imagined in the present and tries to answer that ever more pressing question of how we move forward. The FOSCAT (folding solar catamaran) is designed at very highest calibre which provides high exhilaration performance and unashamedly fast sailing solutions. The FOSCAT is a new alternative concept cat sail-vessel that consumes no fuel with high energy efficiency. Instead, she uses alternative energies and one of a new alternative symbol of raising awareness about sustainable use of resources on the sea.
Sailing should be a recreational activity that has no adverse effect on the environment. By drawing an attention to its dual eco-powered and non-polluting attributes, the FOSCAT increases users’ awareness of environmental problems. She is a new generation cat-boat which encourages increased environmental responsibility that is due to the fact of its secure, stable, eco-friendly and outstanding design capabilities.
The unique hull shape of the FOSCAT makes light work of big waves even smoother and smaller. Hence, the FOSCAT is able to put many larger cats in the shade. The hulls incorporate skegs rather than dagger boards, which beaches the cat in safer and simpler waves. In addition, the lightweight folding hulls are easy to handle ashore and require virtually no maintenance. The FOSCAT is one of the first folding cats which can easily be folded on docks and on any sand shore. She can easily reduce the wind profile during docking and well landing the hulls can be easily retracted with folding rudders and mast.
