SVP Yachts in Slovenia has announced the addition of a new 12m model to the Greenline Hybrid product line. The new motoryacht, being the 5th generation of Greenline hull lines, is aiming at top speeds in excess of 25 knots while keeping the efficiency and tracking ability for displacement speed sailing, the boatbuilder says.
SVP Yachts, the Slovenian company that took over production of the Greenline Hybrid brand of motoryachts last year, has announced that the product line will be expanded with the addition of Greenline 36. The yacht has been designed and engineered by J&J Design.
The prototype of the new 12m model, currently under construction, will be presented to the public at the Cannes boat show in September. Industrial production of the vessel, however, is scheduled to start in December this year.
This new addition to the Greenline Hybrid range is a single-engine, double-cabin model. The company says this project has been designed to bring “more speed, more comfort, more convenience, better value at purchase and reduced cost of ownership”.
The boatbuilder explains: “We brought another level of comfort and convenience on board introducing as standard equipment the large-capacity Lithium battery connected to a high-capacity inverter/charger to use regular home appliances: from high-volume fridge to TV, from electric cooking to blender or toaster.”
In addition, the company claims that Greenline 36 Hybrid is the first production yacht ever to offer air conditioning/heating unit as a standard feature.
The yacht has been designed to run throughout the night without the noise of a generator thanks to Lithium battery and solar panels also as a standard.
Greenline 36 Hybrid hydrodynamics are based on a series of tank-testing work to connect low drag needed for electric low-power sailing and to warrant fuel efficiency and long range and yet retain the high speed potential of the yacht.
The new model, being the 5th generation of Greenline hull lines, is aiming at top speeds in excess of 25 knots while keeping the efficiency and tracking ability for displacement speed sailing.
Headed up by Vladimir Zinchenko, SVP Yachts rescued the beleaguered Seaway, the builder of Shipman, Skagen and Greenline brands in July 2015.
Ilya Berezin, marketing and dealer relations director at SVP Yachts, told IBI that the company has not only resumed production of the Greenline Hybrid range but also has expanded the distribution network with the appointment of 20 new dealers around the world.
The new Greenline 36 joins the Greenline Hybrid range of motoryachts, which comprises the Greenline Hybrid 33, 40 and 43.
