Yacht Of The Week: MY Vanadis
MY Vanadis, the fourth vessel of the CCN family Fuoriserie was recently delivered to her Owner, and had its world premiere at the Cannes Boat Show, September 10 to 15 , and then moved from 25 to 28 September in Monaco.
A 31m fully custom aluminum capable of expressing architectural harmony, external lines of classical flavor and timeless and cutting-edge technological features with great attention to the issues of eco-sustainability and environmental efficiency.
The MY Vanadis is, in fact, the first motoryacht Made in Italy to be certified “Hybrid Power” by Lloyd’s Register, the result the result of intense collaboration between LR, CCN, and Siemens, the plant supplier of energy resources management and supplier of batteries, to ensure navigation in diesel mode, diesel-electric or full electric for maximum comfort and zero emissions.
The boat is equipped with two azimuth thrusters Schottel STP 150 FP double helix controlled with hybrid system which provides both traditional diesel engines and electric motors powered by generators or batteries. This configuration allows a low-power navigation and reduced environmental impact, in addition to an increased comfort on board thanks to the reduction of noise and vibration that is at anchor in navigation.
Two CAT C9.3 B engines propel the vessel at a maximum speed of 12.5 knots which are reduced to 8 in the electric mode. The yacht is equipped with a set of batteries lithium-ion battery with high energy concentration AKASOL (175 kWh) capable of powering most of the utilities on board, allowing the stationing at anchor zero-emission up to 17 h in a row, and navigation at low speed for 120 minutes in complete autonomy, depending on the electrical load.
We have been lucky to be given some exclusive look at brand new yachts at the Monaco Yacht Show, so this week will be very yacht heavy.
