Black Pearl

Black Pearl Eco Friendly Superyacht

Black Pearl is the world's most advanced superyacht, offering true zero-emissions cruising, which is unheard of on a boat of her scope and size. The yacht's controllable pitch propellers feed power back into the ship via a pair of shaft generators, providing enough power to support the yacht's hotel load.

The owner's brief for the 106.7 metre sailing superyacht from Oceanco included building a "zero impact" yacht. As was revealed in the full feature in Boat International's June issue, the owner wanted to prove that it was possible to not be dependent on consuming natural resources.

Energy is saved at every turn, from the HVAC system to her advanced DynaRig sails that allow Black Pearl to take advantage of the eco-friendly natural resource of the wind. Black Pearl also will only have reusable water bottles on board to prevent needless waste from being created.

To hear more from the designers behind some of the world's top eco-friendly superyachts, as well as leading marine scientists and environmental campaigners, join us at the Ocean Talks, hosted by Boat International Media in London on 13 June. Register your attendance for the Ocean Talks here.

Feadship-Savannah-is-an-eco-friendly-super-yacht

It's not just her seafoam exterior that makes 83.5 metre Feadship yacht Savannah a green machine. This 2015 launch uses the Dutch yard's pioneering Breathe propulsion system - which allows for five different operation modes from diesel and diesel-electric combinations to fully electric.

Power comes from a 30-tonne lithium-ion battery bank capable of holding a million watts of electricity. But even in diesel mode, Savannah is highly efficient, with 30 per cent lower fuel consumption than her contemporaries thanks to her dynamic hull shape and steep entrance angle.

eco-freindly Ice superyacht

The first yacht fitted with Azipods, this 90 metre Lürssen, originally known as Air, has exceptionally low emissions. Ice's diesel-electric generators supply power to two azimuth thrusters, which have the added benefit of giving a comfortable, vibration-free ride.
