The new 65-metre (213-foot) superyacht concept, the Green Expedition, is an outcome of the teaming of Swedish superyacht designer, Dennis Ingemansson and the German-based Ned Ship Group.
The team are popularly known for their experience with zero emission yachts and solar-powered boats. True to its name, the Green Expedition has been designed with eco-friendly features that are par excellence.
The explorer vessel, the Green Expedition, built from steel hull and composite superstructure, has an Ice class hull (1A class), a GT of 1,400, and a remarkable globetrotting range in excess of 6,000 nm at 12 knots. The ICE 1A classification makes it perfect to sail through difficult icy areas and choppy seas. The vessel is reportedly considered as the real green footprint in yachting and features a solar cell area that covers around 150 sqm in total, and has a helicopter platform that has the ability to be converted to add an extra 60 sqm of solar cells. Apart from which, the skysail and the retractable wind turbines make it energy efficient.
The vessel can reportedly accommodate up to eight guests across four guest cabins, and also house four guests inclusive of the owner in a double owner’s suite. Apart from which, she can also accommodate a crew of seven on board and offers an impressive 360-degrees ocean view.
She comes with a hybrid solution, so whether one is going through rougher areas like Antarctica or Alaska, or one tries sailing through enormous waves in the Barents Sea, the Green Expedition would endure the diverse environment. She also has a dedicated dive centre and a decompression chamber, which makes it a green expedition icon.
She has a beam of 14 m (46 ft) and draft of 3,50m. The other technical specifications include an engine type that is Hybrid Power System and a Dynamic Position System, and the vessel is said to be available in a myriad range of colours. With her super-exciting features, the Green Expedition is all set to enthral the sailing community.
