Amels’ First Hybrid 60M Superyacht: Since its debut in 2007, more than 40 Amels Limited Edition superyachts have been launched, ranging in size to 83 meters. With the new Amels 60 Limited Editions model, the Dutch company will take another pioneering step by producing its first hybrid superyacht.
Developed in house, the hybrid propulsion system will also be a key component of all future Limited Edition models. The 197-foot Amels 60 will have twin diesel engines compliant with the upcoming international Tier III regulations that will govern all vessels exceeding 500 gross tons. The first Amels hybrid superyacht will be 830 GT.
Both the engines and the gensets will feature Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) filters, which reduce nitrogen-oxide emissions by up to 70%, according to the shipyard. The yacht should have a 4,500nm range at a cruising speed of 13 knots. Multiple operation modes are available:
• Serenity, battery power only while at anchor
• Silent Cruising, battery power plus two gensets to achieve 7 knots
• Eco Cruising, battery power plus both main engines for 7 to 14 knots
• Full Power, battery power, both gensets and both engines for a full-speed 15.5 knots and a full hotel load
Espen Øino, responsible for the design of the Amels 60, also created the first Amels’ 9-meter all-electric tender. Øino believes that once owners ee and hear the difference, electric tenders will become the wave of the future.
