We believe that luxury living
and preserving the planet can
and should go hand in hand.
This is why we make
exciting luxury sailing yachts
that do not harm the planet.
MADE FROM RECYCLED ALUMINIUM
The design of every Vaan is based on circular principles from the start. It is mostly made of recyclable materials and it is almost completely recyclable itself.
The hull is made of more than 50% recycled aluminium like old window frames, traffic signs and license plates. Some parts contain even more than 85% reused materials. Aluminium also has an excellent track record for its strength, safety and flexibility. And of course it has a great look.
For more information on this, please have a look at our page about recycling and circularity >>
ALL ELECTRIC: SWIFT, SILENT, SAFE, SUSTAINABLE
Fitting our ‘Sail The Planet’ mission, a Vaan is all-electric, from induction cooking to electric propulsion. The large or extra large battery banks are charged from the solar panels, the hydro-generating engines, or the wind. A back-up generator can be added to the energy mix to provide extra assurance on longer journeys.
Not only is all-electric more sustainable, it also saves space and eliminates smells, noises and vibrations.
MADE FROM CIRCULAR MATERIALS
We are commited to use only the best, sustainable materials. The hull is made of recycled aluminium and for the interior the finest sustainable materials are used: lyocell as an alternative for silk, a plant-based alternative for leather made of pineapple leaves, cork decking, linen, and certified wood. This makes the R4 not only ‘circular’, it also creates a warm, cosy atmosphere. As it turns out, the ‘fair’ material is usually also the most refined.
By supporting many smaller initiatives around the globe, we aim to protect and restore coastal habitats, both in the water as on shore. So we can all continue to enjoy the beauty, today and tomorrow. #SailThePlanet
