Ganto Project

With naval architecture and engineering by the Roberto Starkel studio in Trieste, and interior design and exterior styling by Filippo Rossi, the propulsion technology is based on systems already employed by some cruise ships whereby a small diesel engine provides the initial power to turn over the electric motors.

Starkel paid close attention to the hull’s hydrodynamic characteristics to provide an efficient, slippery hull without penalising the maximum beam, while the full-electric main motors ensure that both vibrations and emissions are reduced to a minimum. The power systems are also designed to be modular so that upgrades can be applied as technology develops, including the use of fuel cells, without major structural alterations. Solar panels on the fly deck and aft main deck are designed to supplement power requirements.
