SIBS - Greenline Hybrid 33 launch
Sydney International Boat Show, July 29 to August 2
The Greenline Hybrid 33, the first truly hybrid boat utilising solar, diesel and electric power, is set for launch at the Sydney International Boat Show (SIBS).
North South Yachting (NSY), the Australian importer, said the multi-award winning Greenline Hybrid 33 is a production built, single-cabin boat with a patented "superdisplacement" hull, powered by a combination of diesel engine and solar-electric generation. The awards won include the 2010 European Boat of the Year, several national Boat of the Year awards, Swedish Environmental Boat of the Year, and a nomination for a European Award for the Environment, the national dealership sadded.
Greenline sales director, Tilen Jakopin, will be attending SIBS with North South Yachting to specifically support the Australian launch.
Bob Mulkearns from NSY visited the Greenline factory recently and had the opportunity to sea-trial the new boat.
"The sea trial showed the boat to have a solid sea-keeping motion and she was unbelievably quiet on both electric and diesel motor," said Mulkearns.
"Internal space is excellent and the boat exudes a warm, comfortable and luxurious feel with a high-quality finish.
J&J Design have created an astonishing craft using some of the most advanced manufacturing processes. The technology is clearly evident throughout with the new solar-diesel hybrid power, infusion lamination and advanced production capabilities. This is a real 21st century boat," he said.
The first Greenline Hybrid 33 is available to drive-away in Australia for $333,333 (including a number of option upgrades), NSY said.
