Nuvolari Lenard for sustainability in Venice

The Venice-based design studio Nuvolari Lenard recently completed work on a pioneering luxury Venetian water taxi that will help to preserve the historic city through the use of “green” technology, complemented by the studio’s renowned attention to detail and uncompromising luxury finishing.

A project that takes on an almost symbolic value in a moment like the one we are experiencing, in which we have the opportunity to direct our choices towards a more sustainable way of life. In this perspective, the choice to base this project on a hybrid engine is a fundamental component.

Here, Carlo Nuvolari gives an insight into how he, partner Dan Lenard and their team designed this exciting new project that is set to make an impact on their local Venetian community and the wider yachting world. Venice therefore as an ideal laboratory for modern technologies capable of guaranteeing the minimum environmental impact and combined, in the Nuvolari Lenard project, with elegant and classic lines and with the use of wood.

The first unit of the 14-seat luxury water taxi, Thunder, has been built at Cantieri Vizianello in Venice which developed the mechanical and electronic coupling system of the hybrid system. After a test period of about a year, it has obtained complete approval by the classification bodies. It is therefore now a marketable product and no longer an experimental prototype. We hope that this progressive model for transportation in the city will change the mindset of the historically conservative transport companies in Venice.
