The vessel is currently under construction and less than a year away from completion. Once launched, she will be one of the first luxury yachts built to new IMO Tier III emissions regulations which are designed to reduce environmental impact. The Owner will also benefit from engineering advances and first-of-its-kind technology to create an on board experience as incredible as the destinations PROJECT 790 will visit.
“From the beginning of the project, a primary focus of the owner was to minimize the environmental impact of the vessel using advanced technology,” Captain Aaron T. Clark stated. “As a result, there are many unique and environmentally friendly aspects of both the operational and engineering design in this project.”
Gregory C. Marshall Studio was responsible for her exterior appearance with a design that incorporates extensive glazed surfaces into a contemporary hull and superstructure. Inside, the rooms are styled by multi-award-winning Reymond Langton Design.
A number of technical aspects have been incorporated for greater efficiency and a reduced environmental impact:
- The engines use Electric Pod propulsion using a DC bus system with both batteries and variable speed Diesel-Electric generators
- Solar panels and a large battery storage system ensure that vessel can operate for a limited period of time without internal combustion engines in operation
- The electric pod propulsion system is combined with a Dynamic Positioning System (DPS) to hold position without dropping anchor in sensitive areas, such as coral reefs, and
- Waste water can be recycled and used as technical water
Holger Kahl, managing director of Nobiskrug further commented: “This project is a true example of the Owner’s focus and his vision to build a distinctive state of the art hybrid superyacht with as many integrated environmentally-friendly features as possible.”
