Italian yard CCN has launched the first model in its new line of hybrid propulsion yachts.
Now named Vanadis after a goddess from Norse mythology, the 31 metre displacement yacht is also the fourth model in the yard’s Fuoriserie fully custom line.
Unveiled to its owner on May 16, the yacht features interior and exterior design by Guido de Groot and naval architecture by Ginton Naval Architects. Moreover, it was described as a “truly European project” by the yard for its Italian construction, Dutch design and German technology.
Power comes from a pair of CAT C9.3 engines for a top speed of 12.5 knots. However, the yacht is also equipped with two Schottel STP 150 FP azimuth thrusters and an electric engine for lower consumption and limited environmental impact. In electric mode, the yacht has a cruising speed of eight knots.
Accommodation is for a total of six guests in a master cabin and also two guest doubles on the lower deck. The main deck saloon features a large L-shaped sofa, dining area and open galley while two more lounges sit outside, fore and aft.
The yacht features two pilot stations; a covered bridge and station on the flybridge, which is described as “entirely devoted to outdoor life”, with sun loungers, a bar and dining area.
CCN chief executive Diego Michele Deprati said the yacht “opens up a new era for CCN” in environmental innovation.
“We want to be pioneers in promoting a cultural revolution that we deem essential to truly respect our planet. ‘Green technology’ is the way ahead our shipyard has chosen for the future,” he said.
