In Macho Yachts, we develop highly advanced electric boats with a sophisticated AI-driven autopilot system allowing seamless autonomous control via VR or mobile phone.
Yes, it is like Starship, but on water.
From the concept to completion, Macho Yachts are innovation-driven, professionally built electric boats with outstanding performance thanks to the latest marine technologies and finest modern materials, in combination with our forward-thinking methodologies, engineering expertise, and careful attention to detail.
Unlike land transport, water transport is developing more slowly and we would like to cover part of the market needs with our project. We believe that unmanned boats can be offered to the market, initially for the transportation of small volumes of cargo. To reduce the level of pollution of water bodies to 0 we remove dependence on the human factor, reduce logistics costs, using green technologies. As the project develops and in case of success with the use of new technologies, we will be able to offer more capacious watercraft with a longer range. We are also planning now to reduce the cost of the «last mile» of logistics and enable courier services to connect delivery by water. Using our smart berths, we will offer the market new opportunities to expand its activities
We bet you've never seen an innovation-driven self-sailing electric boat, equipped with sophisticated AI-driven autopilot systems and seamless autonomous control via VR or mobile phone.
That's what Macho Yachts came here for. We develop highly advanced electric boats equipped with a sophisticated autopilot system, among many other features. From concept to completion, Macho Yachts are innovation-driven, custom-built sailboats that show outstanding performance using the latest marine technologies and finest modern materials, in combination with our forward-thinking methodologies, engineering expertise, and careful attention to detail.
Macho Yachts will be equipped with state-of-art navigation technologies that allow users to safely and seamlessly sail in any environment and setting.
What’s more, Macho Yacht’s advanced autopilot features will be designed to help users sail in the most challenging weather conditions. Our built-in smart technologies will allow boats to proactively steer, accelerate, and brake-based on external factors, with absolutely no human assistance.
Navigation on autopilot is carried out via a mobile application. Your app prompts you to choose your preferred route, and then seamlessly controls your yacht based on your set preferences until the final destination is reached, allowing you to focus on other things.
The Macho Yacht mobile app unifies your boat’s systems and control panel in one single dashboard view, allowing you to easily manage your navigation from point A to point B just by using your smartphone.
With advanced cameras, sensors, and computing power, your yacht can find and automatically navigate the most optimal routes that will save you costs, and time, every time.
The absolute idea is to integrate our service with Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), a protocol that enables the secure functioning of a decentralized digital database. Distributed networks eliminate the need for a central authority to keep a check against manipulation. DLT is more commonly known as blockchain technology.
Such integration will help to establish and register the movement of boats in the blockchain, which will display information about the location of the boat and cargo in real-time. At the same time, such data cannot be changed or faked. Thus, the client and a service provider will always know where the cargo is in each unit of time.
So, how do you start your Macho Yacht? It’s simple as one, two, three:
Your mobile app will then calculate the accurate time of the trip and display the GPS coordinates of your watercraft in real-time. And when your boat reaches the desired destination, the system will automatically notify several parties of your choice with a text message if you’ve selected this option in the settings.
AI-Driven Autonomous Technologies
How does it work?
Macho Yachts’ self-navigation system will take data from the boats’ sensors and pair it with other information sources, such as GPS, radars, weather charts, and video cameras to guide the yachts on the safest and most optimal routes. Using its in-built artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies, each boat will be programmed to detect and proactively avoid any object it perceives on its route, such as ships and boats, floating debris, buoys, etc. Not only that but Macho Yachts will also be designed to understand and predict how such objects move or behave to safely navigate around them. The boats will intelligently scan their surroundings using a variety of in-built sensors, and later on, feed that information into its AI-based system to generate sophisticated algorithms.
Macho Yachts are going to be built with sustainability in mind. This means our boats are to be designed and developed only using sustainable materials and environmentally-friendly methods that contribute to zero harmful emissions into the atmosphere. Macho yachts will run on electric motors. In addition to that, we are planning to install solar panels on each boat to ensure alternative energy sources. This implementation will strengthen the yacht’s durability and mileage as each boat can be ridden for weeks after a full recharge. Like all modern ships, Macho Yachts are to be equipped with radars and will be visible on all marine navigation maps, to ensure compliance and safety. At this time, we’re developing a prototype that uses a gasoline/diesel engine, however a plan to switch that model to an electric motor is underway.
