Enjoying all the hallmark features of the ILIAD Catamarans range, including unprecedented living space, outstanding performance and the highest quality of craftsmanship, the new ILIAD 53E introduces innovative e-Motion systems that revolutionise yacht propulsion.

With a choice of parallel and serial hybrid system options, the ILIAD 53E delivers a drastic reduction in CO2 emissions, engine and generator running hours, navigation noise and scheduled maintenance costs.

The ILIAD 53E enjoys the same outstanding living space, flexible design and premium craftsmanship that define the ILIAD 53S and ILIAD 53F, but is distinguished by an extended coachroof embedded with an 8,000 watt bank of solar panels.

The impressive model reduces owners’ carbon footprint while achieving sustainable boating practices that help preserve oceans and marine life for future generations.

E-Motion Hybrid’s advanced technology allows the ILIAD 53E to seamlessly switch between electric and diesel propulsion, providing the confidence of both redundancy drive and charging systems in the event of emergencies.

With the ability to cruise in electric mode at lower speeds, the catamaran can reduce fuel consumption by up to 30% compared to traditional yachts, leading to significant long-term savings.

The ILIAD 53E hybrid model enjoys a significant reduction in noise and vibrations, running almost silently in electric mode for a serene cruising experience and reduced disturbance to marine life and surrounding yachts.

The model’s innovative E-Motion technology allows for longer periods of cruising in electric mode, making it ideal for exploring remote locations and sensitive marine areas.
