Heesen's latest launch, superyacht Alive, is the first to be Equipped with an under water foil, called the Hull Vane, developed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects.
This video shows the sub-sea wing, which is designed to harness waves to produce power. As a result, Alive is 35 per cent more efficient than any other yacht of her size, in flat sea conditions. In seas with 1-2 metre waves, the Hull Vane generates 20 per cent more thrust and comfort is improved as the pitching is reduced by 40 per cent.
