In common with shipyards around the world, the pandemic crisis has been a great challenge for Greenline Yachts. Production slowed down but did not stop, and every order was respected.
Greenline’s decision to turn only to local suppliers has helped to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Moreover, since most of the parts come from within Slovenia, production can continue to operate.
Greenline 45 Coupe
At BOOT Düsseldorf 2021 Greenline Yachts will launch the 45 Coupé. Based on the hull, transmission and layout of the famous 45 Fly, the Coupé can be used all year round thanks to its electric sunroof and, with a reduced draught of air, is well suited to cruising on both inland and offshore waterways.
The roof surface houses 8 solar panels for a total of 2.4kW. On a sunny day, they can produce a charge of over 15kWh – more than enough to operate the boat with four people on board.
Sharing its DNA with the 45 Fly, the Coupé boasts naval architecture by J&J Design and an interior by Italian Marco Casali from Too Design. In addition to a range of engines with or without Hybrid Drive, the boat is available with Volvo Penta IPS600 (twin 440hp) for a top speed of 30 knots.
Greenline OceanClass 68
The new OceanClass 68 is a milestone for Greenline as the largest hybrid production yacht ever built. Using a combination of two 1,000hp Cummins diesel engines and a pair of 60kW electric motors, the 20-meter flagship maintains 7 knots of power alone, offering a quiet, emission-free cruising range of 40 nm thanks to a 138kWh battery bank. As an option this capacity can be doubled.
The maximum speed is 25 knots. With a fuel capacity of 5,000 litres the cruising range at 7 knots is 1,800 nm.
Onboard, the yacht is equipped with Simrad multifunction display and navigation equipment with digital switching. In addition, a complete set of high-end Miele appliances that run on a 20kW alternator eliminates the need for a diesel generator.
The yacht can accommodate six guests in three ensuite cabins and two crew members in separate accommodation.
Luca Raumland, Head of Sales and Marketing says: “This has been a challenging time for the business but we have used it productively. We have taken the time to improve our hybrid technology and bolster our position as a builder of responsible boats.”
