Construction is proceeding apace at Kingship Marine Limited on the world's first hybrid green boat under 50 metre, Green Voyager. On 19 April 2011, her keel laying ceremony was held on Kingship’s yard in Zhongshan. and the yard has just send us some images of the finished hull and superstructure. Green Voyager is a new design concept which combines luxurious comfort and environmental responsibility. It is for the owner who seeks a low impact superyacht to cruise the globe; one who wants to do so responsibly but doesn’t want to compromise on luxury and comfort.
Green Voyager, is a 44 metre superyacht that combines luxury and environmental responsibility. She is the first superyacht in the world below 50 meters to have a truly hybrid propulsion. The vertical plumb bow is not just matter of style. The hull shape is an advanced displacement type, where the underwater main parameters and geometry have been studied and tank tested to achieve exceptional performances.
This hull geometry reduces the wave-making resistance and its particular bow shape minimises slamming and favours a smooth passage through the waves, improving fuel efficiency and speed. On this single item, the yacht’s efficiency has been increased by 18 percent. She is also a great example of how an engineering need can be turned into a design feature. She is scheduled to be delivered in 2013.
