Heesen Yachts has announced that the sea trials of Alive were successfully completed in open waters in a slight sea state (0.70 metre waves) with 3-4 SW winds. She was delivered in the first week of November.
The contractual fuel consumption prediction proved to be correct, and is 30 per cent less than on a conventional displacement yacht.
This is an important achievement and statement for this Dutch shipyard, as Alive is the first luxury vessel equipped with Hull Vane, an under water foil that harnesses waves to produce power.
