STX Europe, builders of some of the world's most well-known cruise ships such as the Queen Mary 2 and the Oasis of the Seas, has embarked on an initiative to create an environmentally friendly cruise ship. The fruit of its labours is the revolutionary Eoseas.

Eoseas was developed as part of STX Europe's Ecohorizon project, which aims to develop practical solutions for constructing more environmentally friendly and sustainable ships. STX Europe is among Europe's largest shipbuilders and has been responsible for building some of the largest cruise ships in service today including the Oasis of the Seas. Eoseas is more than a design, it is a fully functioning blueprint that is awaiting orders from prospective buyers.

Eoseas is a mixture of traditional and new technologies. The ship uses alternative energies to run, and the traditional sail and trimaran design are complemented by state-of-the-art building techniques.

The Eoseas embodies practical solutions to problems inherent in current cruise ships, namely in emission control, power and waste management. Unlike many other projects still on the drawing board, this design is just waiting for an order to be brought into reality.

The double hull design of the Eoseas allows for the ship to have long promenade decks with direct access to passenger cabins. The glass covering of the promenades also double as solar panels generating electricity for the ship.

The cabins are constructed from fully recycled materials and provide all the modern conveniences expected by the modern passenger including direct access to your own balcony and ocean views.

The trimaran hull design allows for new entertainment and leisure spaces aboard the Eoseas. The aft pool deck incorporates generous sunbathing areas, bar and easy access to the rest of the ship from glass-enclosed elevators.

The emission reduction is achieved by utilising a tri-generation power plant, which operates on liquefied natural gas (LNG) as well as making full use of the computer-controlled 12,000-square-metre worth of sails on its five masts.
