our solar electric yachts concept
Sovereign Ships provides residential solar electric yachts focused on self-sufficient, ocean-going homes.
Our mission is to inspire and enable the next level of freedom by creating self-sufficient, ocean-going homes powered by renewables using existing technologies.
The idea behind these designs is to make floating, modern-day spaceships… To offer rugged platforms that can support independent and self-sufficient lifestyles and empower occupants to live and travel comfortably without refueling or resupply.
our solar electric yachts Are
SIMPLE – Designed to be used and maintained by a single owner/operator.
SENSIBLE – As near to entry-level price for full-time ocean living as practicable while still offering the creature comforts of a modern home.
STURDY – Well suited to handle the hazards associated with the marine environment.
SOVEREIGN – Capable of sustaining its occupants’ independent lives at sea.
Our solar electric yachts are designed for:
- Those that value political freedom and flexibility.
- Those that value geographical freedom and flexibility.
- Self-sufficient individuals that like taking care of themselves.
- Those looking to escape the hustle/bustle of modern life while accessing it as desired.
- People who tend to move a lot or would like to.
- Nature lovers who want to immerse themselves comfortably.
- Adventure seekers and explorers.
I have always been very creative and grew up obsessing over all things futuristic, flying, and space-related. Those traits motivated me to study engineering and become a pilot in the U.S. Air Force.
After leaving the Air Force, I started contemplating what the future could be like and turning that future into reality. My thoughts kept gravitating to my ideal kind of dream homes—spaceships—for the independence, flexibility, and freedom they could provide. I decided to run with those thoughts and see where they’d lead.
Ben Woodason, Founder & CEO Sovereign Ships
Sovereign Ships sprang from the idea of creating modern-day ships that could turn into spaceships with the simple addition of a ‘warp engine.’ Electric yachts that would enable the lifestyle you’d expect as an independent space traveler. Yachts that inspire and empower individuals to realize the next level of freedom.
It all starts with a preliminary design. This consists of a general layout (floor plans) and a 3D model of the ship to help visualize the design.
You can choose from our available ship designs, modify our current plans to better suit your needs, or request an entirely new design.
When you’re satisfied with the preliminary design, the next step is preparing the detailed construction drawings. These drawings will incorporate weight, stability, strength, and performance calculations following the applicable standards for ocean-going vessels.
Upon completion, take your construction drawings to a qualified shipyard to start the build process, or, if you prefer, we will collaborate with capable shipyards to complete your project on your behalf.
