Frequently asked questions

Solar panels and (when applicable) wind turbines charge the ship’s battery bank. The battery bank then provides power to the electric motors propelling the ship and the electrical systems powering the ship.

Sovereign Ships are designed with long voyages in mind and incorporate plenty of storage space for such voyages.

Build time will depend on the ship and the shipyard selected. You can expect anywhere between 4 and 18 months after the build is started.

Details such as the paint scheme, fabrics, cabinet materials, floors, and the like are selected by the buyer. We will also incorporate non-structural changes to existing designs within reason.

Sovereign Ships are designed to meet or exceed CE-A certification standards. They are designed to operate in winds less than Beaufort Force 10 (24.4 m/s or 47 kts) and significant wave heights of 7 m (23 ft).

This will be where Sovereign Ships shine for three main reasons: 
    1. Electrical propulsion systems require virtually no maintenance. 
    2. You will also be harvesting energy via solar panels instead of buying fuel.
    3. You will be harvesting food from your garden instead of buying groceries.
 
Sovereign Ships are currently designed with Aluminum hulls.
Sovereign Ships are designed to be self-sufficient ocean-going vessels suited for extended voyages. This design philosophy necessitates four significant differences from conventional yachts:
    1. Solar panels (and, in some cases, wind turbines) generate power instead of fuel stations.
    2. Battery banks store power as opposed to gas tanks.
    3. Electric drivetrains propel the ship as opposed to combustion engines.
    4. Interior gardens/water treatment systems sustain the crew as a supplement to (or replacement for) the market.
