The First Eco Hybrid Marine Cruiser now realised with a physical model

Furyan F35 the first Eco Hybrid Marine Sports Cruiser modelled by Arts University Bournemouth, with thanks to Flexiteek and 3D Consultancy.

An electric boat with unique technological and environmental credentials, starting a new chapter in luxury marine cruising.

The high detail model was created as a visualisation tool for the engineering team and for potential buyers to get a better feel for the concept design.  A useful feature in the model is that the Coupe roof section lifts off to allow both of the proposed versions to be visualised as shown below.

A range of digital and traditional modelmaking processes were utilised throughout the build. The hull section was CNC machined for high detail and accuracy for aerodynamic surfaces and preserving crisp detail on edges.

Many of the interior parts, furniture and sterndrive assembly were 3d printed using SLA process in resin. The Coupe roof was made from vacuum formed clear plastic created from a forming tool.

Benefits of the Furyan F35 Eco Hybrid includes:

Improved performance:

Greater torque enabling full power from a stationery position and quieter running (less noise pollution) than fossil fuelled alternatives;

Lower costs:

A 70% saving on diesel fuel costs and 90% saving on routine maintenance – combined saving of up to £50,000 over the first five years of ownership;

Eco friendly:

ZERO harmful emissions (NOx, SOx, HC, CO2 and PM) on electric propulsion and a 60% reduction when in hybrid mode.
The Furyan hull is made from natural fibre with a negative CO2 footprint, is fully recyclable and has a low CO2 manufacturing ratio;

Safe at sea:

Battery packs and e-motors are on separate circuits; the range extending generator recharges the batteries when required and can drive the boat safely back to port at 12 knots.  Almost uniquely amongst this type of boat, it is designed to meet Type Approval CE category B offshore – boats operating offshore with winds of 40 knots and significant seas to 13 feet (4 metres); and

Regulatory compliance:

Fully compliant with the increasing regulatory environment across Europe.
