Ned Ship Group and Swedish designer Dennis Ingemansson have teamed up to present a new 65-metre superyacht concept with eco-friendly functionality at its core. Named the Green Expedition, the explorer vessel has a GT of 1,400 and is designed with an Ice class hull and an impressive range in excess of 6,000 nm at 12 knots.
The Green Expedition features a solar cell area, covering 150 sqm in total, with the helicopter platform also able to be converted to add an additional 60 sqm of solar cells. The skysail allows for energy efficient movement together with the retractable wind turbines.
On board, she accommodates up to eight guests across four guest cabins, as well as an additional four guests including the owner in a double owner’s suite. A crew of seven are also accommodated for on board.
Ned Ship and Ingemansson explain: “She is a true green yacht with eco-friendly features such as hybrid solution, skysail, solar cells, wave turbines and onboard recycling systems. Whether you’re going through rougher areas like Antarctica or Alaska, or sailing through enormous waves in the Barents Sea, she is built to endure. All equipment is stored indoors, and there is no risk of losing the helicopter or tenders during stormy weather.” Further demonstrating her exploration capabilities is a dedicated dive centre with submarines and a decompression chamber.
