Even if your luxury boat has a functional sail for passive propulsion, yachting still generally impacts the environment negatively when any engine is also employed. For those buying into new aquatic toys with eco-friendly features, the S2S Project would greatly enhance your experience on the water by supplying green energy to run your on-board systems.

Marco Paolucci’s innovative concept takes advantage of tidal power within the Gulf of Campania. The hi-tech raft works with BioStream devices installed across the seabed, harnessing the renewable energy of the tumultuous surf and gathering 1MW each. The floating S2S Project stations serve to distribute power to passing boaters while consuming some for themselves to provide information about the weather, perform water desalination and more.
