Seabird Technologies has announced that it will be hosting a Lounge at the prestigious Yacht Club de Monaco on the 30th of September, during the Monaco Yacht Show, to unveil their vision for a sustainable maritime future and ambitions to accelerate marine decarbonisation.
Seabird has an exclusive relationship with the E1 Championship to develop and manufacture the revolutionary Racebird, an all-new fully electric hydrofoiling race boat. The racing partnership provides an ideal platform and testing ground to push boundaries and develop sustainable technology at breakneck speed, which will be used to drive industry-wide decarbonisation.
The Seabird Lounge
The Seabird Lounge, on the ground floor of the Yacht Club de Monaco, will offer visitors an exclusive opportunity to meet the Seabird leadership team, including visionary founder Sophi Horne.
Raised in Norway, Sophi is quickly becoming one of the most influential women in yachting, with her futuristic design projects notorious for pushing the boundaries of electric boating. After pitching the idea for Seabird to Alejandro Agag (CEO of Extreme E, Chairman of Formula E and Chairman of the E1 Championship), Sophi was able to secure him as an investor and pull together an incredible team to facilitate the build of her designs – including Richard Draisey as CEO and Nathan Baker as CTO, who both have backgrounds building high-performance cars for McLaren Racing.
Visitors to the Lounge in Monaco will be able to see the Racebird up close, chat with the engineering team behind the boat and hear all about the E1 Championship. The goal is to offer visitors a chance to experience the brand first-hand in a relaxing and fun environment, with an open bar and live DJ set throughout the afternoon. There will also be exciting sneak peeks of future Seabird projects across the business, revealed over the course of the day.
“We’re privileged to have the opportunity to share our vision at the Seabird Lounge and look forward to meeting with partners, press, industry professionals and the public against the incredible backdrop of the Monaco Yacht Show, at the Yacht Club de Monaco.” – Sophi Horne
