Green Hydrogen Propulsion 


The racing yacht Genuine Risk, a 90’ super-maxi with international race winning pedigree, has been recommissioned and re-launched. This innovative super-maxi will start an exciting new comeback campaign with Genuine Racing and aims to disrupt the yacht racing world for the better.



One of only one five super-maxis currently in Australia and 12 racing globally, Genuine Risk is part of a unique group at the leading edge of yacht racing. Genuine Risk started life as the cutting edge of maxi yacht design and has enjoyed success throughout her career. Genuine Racing is committed to returning Genuine Risk to that role though a host of development projects. Not only to make her faster and lighter but also to showcase sustainability as an asset for race success through the creation of a world first infinite range closed loop nano-photonic solid state green hydrogen fueled electric propulsion system. This is a product that we intend to take to market following onboard trials, in order to eliminate the need for internal combustion propulsion and power generation in the marine environment and meet net zero carbon targets.
