The technical launch of the 50m/165’ Hybrid Tankoa S502 Elettra is on schedule at the Genoa shipyard. Following final fit out and dock trials, the yacht will pass intensive sea trials before delivery to her European owner next summer. Designed by Florence based Francesco Paszkowski in collaboration with Margherita Casprini, the model S502 Elettra is a style a sister-ship to the first 50 meters “Vertige” delivered in 2017.
As onboard “Vertige”, she reveals a balanced and timeless style with a layout designed for optimal circulation. Owners and guests can move from deck to deck without interference with crew members who have their own dedicated pathways for servicing the yacht, providing complete privacy for owners and guests.
But differs from her predecessor under four key aspects:
- Project Elettra powered with a hybrid propulsion package.
- She will be a 5-cabin with a main deck owner’s suite and four guest cabins on the lower deck.
- The galley is on the main deck, instead of a lower deck.
- Her foredeck features a touch-and-go helipad.
Let’s look closer to the main innovation onboard this new 50m superyacht, her hybrid propulsion system with four different operation modes:
- Diesel-electric mode. In this operation mode, the electric motors have powered by the two variable speed generators, allowing for a 10.5 knots speed and a range of 4,900 nm.
- Hybrid mode. One of the two main engines drives feeds the same shaft electric motor to generate electrical power to run the second electric motor for propulsion and hotel load. At 12 knots, the yacht will have a cruising range of approx. 4,000 nm. The two diesel generators are inactive in this mode.
- Traditional mode. The yacht can sail at 17 knots using both main diesel engines for propulsion and a diesel generator for onboard services.
- Full-speed mode. With both main engines and generators supplying power to the two electric motors and for hotel loads, the yacht will reach a top speed of 18 knots.
