“The layout is an important feature, conventional yachts have two large engines right in the middle of the hull, connected to two propeller shafts. The best part of the yacht is given over to the engines, these can create noise and vibration that can disturb the owner and his guests.”

The battery system
When the sea trails of this vessel were succesfully completed, the vessel has shown that is can easily be maneuvered and the battery system worked as planned. Tilli Antonelli said to Luxury Today that the battery tests were a great succes.
“The battery tests were a great success, the yacht ran comfortably at 5kts in ZEM consuming no fuel whatsoever….but the most remarkable and memorable aspect was that she ran in total silence!”
