Who says luxury can not be green! Green yachts have been in the world of high sees for some time now. Danish Yachts have come up with a brand new 38m super yacht called the Project 116. Designed by Espen Oeino the yacht comes with a carbon fiber hull which will save at least 25% material as compared to the conventional composite build.
For the ultimate in speed the yacht is fitted with twin diesel engine that gives it a cruising speed of 50 knots and a high range of 900 miles. Thanks to jet propulsion she will also be incredibly easy to navigate through the ocean waters. Located in Skagen, Denmark, Danish Yachts is committed to creating yachts with a minimal impact on the Earth’s environment from the beginning of the design process until each project is ready for launch. The yacht maker also puts each of its projects through a strict research and testing process to ensure the optimum weights and measurements are used. Project 116 will even include reflecting glass that has been specially tinted to eliminate any energy loss.
To provide the minimum negative impact on the environment, the team at Danish Yachts is dedicated to incorporating environmentally sound, biodegradable recyclable products. The super yacht shipyard takes full advantage of wind power for electricity and all yacht build areas are insulated efficiently to reduce heat loss.
No expense was spared in creating the sleek and sporty interior of Project 116 designed by Espen Oeino with its comfortable and spacious quarters. A Bang & Olufsen entertainment system with central controls is included in the yacht and it also features an air conditioning system with custom made ducts and dual core frequency controlled air handler twin semi-hermetic compressors. Project 116 will also feature several tenders including an Akoya aircraft made from light carbon fiber material from LISA Airplanes. The aircraft features folding wings for easy storage and low fuel consumption.
Project 116 will be launched in the summer of 2010.
