MAK­ING WAVES

Prestige Hong Kong - - AGENDA | TOYS -

Boast­ing what its man­u­fac­ters call “best-in-class hy­dro­dy­namic ef­fi­ciency and an op­ti­mised hy­brid propul­sion sys­tem”, the 109-me­tre-long Bravo Eugenia is a rad­i­cal new su­pery­acht from Dutch com­pany Oceanco and naval-ar­chi­tec­ture stu­dio Lat­eral. The ves­sel, which uses 30 per­cent less fuel than a com­pa­ra­ble su­pery­acht yet can cruise at speeds up to 19 knots, also of­fers more than 100 square me­tres of lower-deck space — suf­fi­cient for six guest suites, a beach lounge, a spa and a gym — thanks to its sin­gle-tier en­gine room. Its propul­sion sys­tem har­vests ki­netic en­ergy un­der sail that can be used for elec­tric power — and if that weren’t suf­fi­cient, it looks amaz­ing.
