Cruising Area of Solar Wave
Solar Wave Description
Imagine cruising in silence. The rush of wind and waves the only noise, interrupted now and then by the calls of seabirds. The SOLAR WAVE 64 electric propulsion catamaran is noiseless and without any emissions, pollution free. You move through nature peacefully, without startling wildlife, or disturbing the environment. Cruising aboard this state-of-the-art build is a seductive experience.
SOLAR WAVE is a luxury villa afloat. Dual hulls and a wide-beam superstructure allow for expansive social areas and enhanced privacy in the cabins. Open architecture on the main deck seamlessly integrates the spacious saloon with the expansive fore and aft decks. Forward, guests can relax seated in the cockpit, or enjoy sun rays and sea views from the trampolines. The protected aft deck is the prime spot for al fresco dining. Sun pads on the flybridge provide comfortable lounging with spectacular views.
Accommodations are for five guests in two, king-berth cabins, one cabin has an additional single berth. Both ensuite cabins have walk around beds with under-bed storage, closets and cabinets. Large windows let in plenty of daylight, keeping rooms airy and bright. Full air conditioning maintains a comfortable temperature at all times.
SOLAR WAVE beckons relaxation. This is not a yacht for people in a big hurry. This is a yacht for those who want to meld with nature, to savor the sights and especially the sounds of the islands. It is a yacht for everyone who wants the journey to be as amazing as the destination.
Two spacious cabins for guests, one with king bed, the other with king bed plus single bed. Crew cabin is port aft.

Solar Wave Crew Profile
Captain Ufuk Turkes
Captain Turkes grew up in a small farm village in Çanakkale, Turkey. Like Istanbul, Çanakkale province has both European and Asian parts, which straddle the Dardanelles strait, connecting the Sea of Marmara and the Aegean Sea. No surprise that as a child Ufuk was already passionate about the sea and was always boating. He also liked carpentry and began making wooden boats at age 10.
When Captain Turkes was just 15 years old he moved to Marmaris, Turkey, to pursue his dream career in hotels and tourism. He immediately found his first job at a hotel and launched his career in hospitality. Captain Turkes has always loved working with people and boating. It was a natural progression to merge these two passions into one career. At 27, when he began yachting, he truly found the perfect calling.
Captain Turkes has crewed on motor yachts worldwide. Most recently, he captained SOLAR WAVE all around the Med, Canary Islands, Cape Verde, on the Atlantic crossing to Barbados, to West Palm Beach and the Bahamas. He is honest, fearless and kind, even to pigeons. He recounts, “In Canary Islands, a tired pigeon joined my boat. She was tired with no escape to nearby land. She spent nine days total, as a guest on SOLAR WAVE. She traveled all the way from the Canary Islands to Cape Verde. She has a new life now, in a totally different country.”
In his spare time when not on the water, Captain Turkes takes to the roadways with his wife, riding his motorcycle all over the world, especially in the mountains and beach towns of Turkey. He is a charming host and a highly qualified Captain, holding a 500 Gross ton yacht master and RYA power boat certificate level 2. Guests chartering SOLAR WAVE can anticipate an extraordinary experience.
Chef Lauren Viviano
Guests rave about Lauren´s menu. She grew up working in several Italian family restaurants and bakeries. Her repertoire includes many marvelous recipes handed down through the generations. But she is certainly not limited to Italian cuisine. She says, ´Given my background, Italian/Mediterranean are obvious favorites, like Penne Pasta ala Vodka and mushroom leek soup. Modesty aside, I can cook almost anything without limitations, and can execute all types of meals, from formal diners to great beach barbecues.´ Friends describe Lauren as loyal and creative. She also has a playful sense of humor, evident in her motto: Life´s short, eat dessert first!
