The Wind-Sun-Waves driven sailing machine is a yacht concept, meant to be environmentally correct, where energies from Wind, Sun and Waves are utilized for ballasting, propulsion and on board energy maintenance.

The ultimate goals are:

  •  to make easy to use, environmentally friendly sailboat
  •  to make the boat more energy self-sufficient
  •  to make the boat faster by using: solar energy, waves energy and wing-sail for propulsion - sometimes all types of energy are utilized  simultaneously 

It seems to be possible to achieve these objectives by two innovations:

  •  the first one is by using automatic controlled multimember active lateral ballast system
  •  the second one is by using automatically controlled technology from inside a variable wing-sail
