Eco-friendly IPS technology for the newly launched Amer 94 twin

Written by Laura Nicholls

Italian shipyard Amer Yachts have successfully launched their latest superyacht, the Amer 94 Twin. Launched in Viareggio, Italy last week, the 28.65-metre superyacht joins the Amer range which includes 86, 92, 100 and 116-foot vessels. The Amer 94 Twin features the new 1350 IPS Volvo Penta engine in double IPS configuration as the yard focuses on decreasing emissions. The D13-IPS1350 engine is the first IPS model to hit the 1,000-hp mark and the most powerful IPS unit to date.

As a result of the lower fuel consumption of the engine, guests can cruise for longer - reportedly at 9 knots for approximately 1,600 nautical miles. Otherwise, the engine can be powered up to a top speed of 27-knots, or a maximum cruising speed of 23-knots.

The shipyard’s environmentally friendly approach is promoted in the Amer 94 Twin’s exterior - which features green tones throughout its exterior and interior.
