Unveiled at last month’s Monaco Yacht Show, the spacious and luxurious 50m (164′) super yacht NOVA (YN 17850) is an efficient and powerful vessel, currently under construction at the prestigious Dutch shipyard HEESEN, with launch scheduled for 2017. Luxury yacht NOVA represents the world’s first Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) motor yacht fitted with hybrid propulsion. Take a look at this highly innovative vessel in the beautiful video below, released by the shipyard.
NOVA yacht is an ultra-efficient, low fuel burning vessel, delivering a super quiet cruising. By adding two water cooled DC electric shaft motors of 127 kW each she can cruise at speeds up to 9 knots using the generators alone. The main engines can be switched off and do not need to be used. At this speed the consumption is predicted to be a staggering 45 litres per hour.
