Busy times at our shipyard in Oss!
On Saturday 10 November 2018, at our facility in Oss we joined together the hull and superstructure of YN 19150 Project Electra.
Based on the success of her award-winning predecessor - Home (YN 17850) - Project Electra marries performance and efficiency by combining the FDHF with Heesen’s innovative hybrid solution, which uses both diesel and electric propulsion.
Compared to a traditional diesel engine arrangement, the hybrid power and propulsion system is quieter and more fuel efficient. In addition, it offers cost-reducing benefits and flexible power management.
Electra’s technological heart is wrapped in a contemporary design package that comes in just below the 500GT threshold. Frank Laupman of Omega Architects created a bold exterior design where aesthetics meet functionality.
Twelve guests are accommodated in five lower deck suites and a master stateroom located on the main deck forward, [...] fully enjoy the panoramic vistas from the floor-to-ceiling windows.
'Project Electra' is the 3rd hull of this 50m design by Omega Architects, and sister to M/Y 'Home' (ex Project Nova) and Project Boreas (under construction).
