What if someone could combine wind power – which is universally available, costs nothing and creates no emissions – with the on demand convenience, speed and safety of motor power, to make something totally unique? You’d get an entirely new, more sustainable form of boating pleasure. Fast and fun like a powerboat. All the efficiency of a sailing craft.
Enter Morrelli & Melvin and the indikon k4.
Morrelli & Melvin has shattered the preconceptions of what a motorsailer can be by combining sail and power ergonomics to a level previously unrealized and creating a hull form that favors both propulsion modes. k4 is a fast and lively sailboat that rejoices when the wind is blowing, a powerful motorboat that glides effortlessly when the wind is not. And when the k4 unleashes indikon’s proprietary ISIS technology to blend wind power AND horse power, it redefines what a hybrid motorsailer can be. More speed, greater comfort and a new standard in efficiency.
The k4 has been reviewed by some folks who know a thing or two about making great boats, and the power of the vision and the Morrelli & Melvin design has been confirmed. Indikon has been enthusiastically adopted by the worlds leading brands who have joined the team as project partners:Volvo Penta, North Sails, Hall Spars, Harken and Atlantis are all now all part of the indikon team.
This will be the most innovative vessel to hit the water in years. It is the indikon k4, it is right on time, and it is now available for sale.
The indikon p4 reflects the design innovations that Morrelli & Melvin incorporated into the k4, along with the sleek design, that today’s catamaran owners are looking for. Powered by Volvo Penta’s relieable D3 diesel powerplants, an owner has the choice of 170, 200, or 220 HP options and can achieve excellent fuel efficiency, cruising comfort and speed.
