James Munn at Fraser Yachts gives me the low down on his latest listing, the 28m Intec Marine Hybrid 90 motor yacht project.
The engineering team behind the boat has been responsible for some of the highest quality engineering in the Dutch superyacht industry. With a list of yachts and shipyards (Amels, Bloemsma van Breemen, Vitters, Jongert, Feadship etc) benefiting from its skills, Intec Marine has now used its knowledge of new technology in the first of a series of hybrid yachts.
The Intec Marine Hybrid Propulsion System makes use of the new Voith electric propulsion, powered by variable speed generators resulting in incredibly low noise levels (35dBA), silent running for manoeuvring in port and dramatically reduced emissions. At least 30% reduction in energy demand can be achieved through design and operation and the space saved through reduced engineering is used for guests or crew.
This first yacht is 28m but is a full three deck yacht. She has interior and exterior styling by Guido de Groot Design, naval architecture is by Doug Sharp in Holland and engineering and construction by Intec Marine Shipyard in Den Helder, Holland.
Construction of the hull should begin later this year and she’ll be ready for delivery 26 months later.
Sleeping eight guests in four cabins, the Intec Marine Hybrid 90 is asking €8.25 million.
