Sarissa win means hat-trick of Eco Awards for Hyper TP yachts

Everyone at MAR-IX was delighted to see the stunning 60-metre sailing yacht SY Sarissa win the 2024 Eco Award at the recent Boat International Design & Innovation Awards. Beautifully built as always by Royal Huisman Shipyard, the award jury was full of praise for Sarissa’s “multi-faceted approach to cruising with minimal environmental impact.” One of the key eco-friendly solutions in place which helped Sarissa take home this prestigious prize was the Hyper TP system from MAR-IX. Among the specific benefits of the custom-designed solution we developed for Sarissa was the integrated recovery of waste heat from her generators, chillers and fresh-air system.

No coincidence

This is now the third year in a row that a yacht with a tailor-made MAR-IX HVAC system has won the Eco Award. Last year the honour went to MY Rocket One from Gulf Craft and in 2022 it was the turn of Baltic’s SY Perseverance. It’s no coincidence that our innovative solutions are being embraced by visionary owners who also benefit from smart system integration and energy savings of up to 80%.
