'Lowest Possible Footprint': Meet 80m Superyacht Aegir 2.0

By Jenna Mehdi

Tillberg Design of Sweden (TDoS) has officially unveiled its latest superyacht concept. Designed to enhance the platform of its predecessor Aegir, 80m Aegir 2.0 is a wind-powered trimaran which claims to have ‘the lowest possible environmental footprint’ of any yacht ever built.

Combining world-class design with advanced technology, TDoS opted for a trimaran hull to prevent heeling and provide a stable platform with increased deck space. With a wide beam of 18.5m, this allows for much more room for design maneuver than with traditional sailing yachts. 

TDoS Partner and Yacht Director Daniel Nerhagen said of Aegir 2.0 that the project was conceived to offer ‘unparalleled luxury with the lowest possible environmental footprint’. This was no understatement. 

Speaking with Superyachts.com about the design inspiration behind Aegir 2.0, Daniel Nerhagen said: 'We have been sailing for a couple of thousand years, but we only used fossil fuels the past hundred years. It was now time to go back in history and revisit proven concepts but with the improved technology of today.' 

With an infinity pool in the aft and Jacuzzi in the fore, Aegir 2.0’s pool deck becomes a platform for entertainment and socialising. In keeping with the latest trends, the yacht offers a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor spaces, panoramic glass walls and an open-air viewing platform with bar on the sky deck. She is also equipped with a gym and spa, two tender garages and accommodation for 12 guests and 16 crew. 

Aegir 2.0 has been designed to push the boundaries of space and volume optimisation. Her distinctive exterior is characterised by a black ‘wing’ connecting the generous open deck space with the trimaran pontoons. Her Swedish roots shine through in Scandinavian-style clean lines allowing for a streamlined and eye-catching profile. 

The megayacht has been designed to accommodate a DynaRig, the iconic rig system first designed in the 60s and brought to some of the world’s greenest sailing yachts by Dykstra Naval Architects. Combining cutting-edge hydronics with a hybrid wind-electric propulsion system that recharges the batteries under sail, Aegir 2.0 promises a virtually infinite range with zero fuel consumption. 

Her interior design matches form with function; a continuation of the yacht’s Scandi-chic minimalist style. Subtle colour tones have been paired with light, organic materials to give a feel of interior elegance, enhanced by light and spacious rooms. Aegir 2.0's signature style 'focuses on simple lines with attention to the small details and true workmanship'  to create a true at-home feel onboard.

Aegir 2.0 is the ideal home-at-sea for the modern yacht Owner looking to push the boundaries in green innovation, without compromising on luxury or expert design.
