Heesen 5000 Hybrid YN 19150 Project Electra
The exterior of this yacht is designed by Omega Architects and it’s our second yacht with hybrid propulsion. In this case ‘Hybrid’ means that the yacht can draw on two sources of power for propulsion: diesel mechanical and diesel electrical. Either or both sources can be used at the same time. This provides less noise and vibration, a more flexible power management which means better efficiency.
This yacht has a transatlantic range of 3,750 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots. Her top speed of 16.3 knots is remarkable for a displacement yacht of her size. The hybrid propulsion operates near-silent in electric mode. Moreover, she achieves lower fuel consumption and a higher top speed when the diesel engines and electric motors are combined
