Greenline 65 Oceanclass Yacht: Cleaner and Greener
Sonika III, a Greenline 65 Oceanclass motor yacht, got the Propspeed treatment before a voyage from Slovenia to Greece.
Propspeed’s ability to reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions while boosting performance makes it a perfect fit for the Greenline brand. Eco-friendly Greenline yachts feature a solar array that collects and stores the sun’s energy as well as an engine-driven generator providing a constant AC power supply of 230 or 120 volts.
Preliminary tests have yielded remarkable results. Says Bostjan Lojo, owner of LNC Marine in Slovenia, “The Greenline 40 has a maximum speed of 19 knots. With Propspeed, we saw 21 knots!”
In May 2018, Propspeed was reapplied to the 65 Oceanclass Sonika III, a semi-custom motor yacht capable of Class A navigation, or ocean crossing. When in Hybrid Drive, she sails without pollution, noise or wake in electric mode, drastically reducing fossil fuel use over a boating season at sea, on lakes or inland waterways.
- More speed, less fuel
