In 2013 Nakhimov Yachts signed a contract for the construction of 55 metre yacht to be build at Admiral shipyard. The yacht has a revolutionary hybrid power system enabling the yacht to cruise 10 knots on electric engines consuming just 95 liters per hour.
Naval architecture is by Vripack, who have just finished tank testing the yacht’s hull. By a 5-axis milling machine a 1:10 bright yellow scale model has been made, which was tesed in a computer controlled water basin of 170 by 40 meters.
Albert Abma, Chief Naval Architect at Vripack commented: "The results coming out of this unique ships motion basin are showing that we've created one of our most modern hull shapes ever. And with 7000 plus lines plans in our Library that counts for something we believe in."
