Taking its name from the flying fish living in the Mediterranean, the Volitan, is an environmentally friendly boat considered as one of the alternatives of the future. Using sails, wind and solar power to get around while storing the energy in its batteries, it also obtains fresh water from sea water and does not produce carbon dioxide emissions. The secret of Volitan — which can operate in 60 knot winds — is the way its four wings react to weather conditions thanks to its sail design. Beside the solutions it brings to the current balance issues, it is described as the boat of 2014 since it hosts so many innovations which can be accepted as revolutions in boat design. The Volitan is the new symbol of raising awareness on sustainable use of resources on the sea.
