All-electric, whisper quiet, one sail and comfort as a top priority.
The HopYacht 30 is designed for relaxed island hopping, coastal hops or simply bay to bay.
Our new HopYacht 30 catamaran makes sailing easy and effortless, by simplifying the things that make traditional yachts feel like hard work.
Designed specifically for couples or families with young children (perhaps not yet able to help out), HopYacht is easy to sail short-handed. With the stability of a catamaran, anxious newcomers to sailing will quickly feel at home, and that means you can relax.
Perfect for bay, coastal or short island hops. But why stop there? To explore another region of the world, the HopYacht 30 has demountable hulls and will fit into two standard 40' containers. Assembly at your new destination is straightforward.
With the same beam as a typical 36'- 40' monohull, you'll have more options to secure a berth in busy marinas and of course mooring fees will be much lower than a typical wide beam catamaran!
With just a single sail to manage, HopYacht lives up to the promise of effortless sailing. The genoa sheets are led to one winch at the helm station, making sailing single-handed a breeze. Positioning the mast further aft optimises the sail area and significantly improves upwind performance. An asymmetric spinnaker can be added as an option.
All on one level.
The cockpit, saloon and forward cabin areas are all on the same level with full standing headroom throughout, eliminating the hassle and hazard of climbing up and down companionway steps.
One level also introduces more light into the interior with large wrap around windows. HopYacht's layout creates a natural flow of air throughout, keeping you naturally cool, without the need for air-conditioning.
E-sailing ... all-electric.
Equipped with electric sail drives plus electric water heating and cooking, fossil fuel pollution is eliminated. There's also no noise pollution. With whisper quiet electric motors, re-charged by four solar panels, HopYacht is truly eco-sensitive.
Unlike yachts with diesel engines, motor sailing now becomes a real joy. We call this E-Sailing! A great way to enjoy more efficient sailing, especially when you need to beat the tide or get home before dark. A bit like riding an E-Bike!
Relaxation super-yacht style.
Our design team have extensive experience creating interiors for larger luxury catamarans and have borrowed a number of ideas to enhance the overall comfort of our HopYacht. A good example is the wrap-around cockpit seating which is fully upholstered and converts into a day bed with room for two!
A proper island bed.
Standard yacht berths can feel a little like you are on a camping holiday! The forward cabin features a proper walk-around queen sized bed (1.92m x 1.53m) .
Sunbathing can be thirsty work!
If you take relaxation seriously, you'll love the trampoline area at the bow. No more tossing a coin to see who will fetch the refreshments, because built into the aft section of the anchor locker is a cooler box with drink holders.
Galley integrated into the cockpit area.
For relaxed holiday style sailing, having the galley in the under-cover cockpit area makes a huge amount of sense. The cook is able to socialise and enjoy the view while cooking. In warm weather, it's much cooler and the heat (and smell) from cooking isn't trapped inside the saloon.
