The world’s first and only true hybrid yacht

New generation Greenline is coming to Australian waters.


The team at eyachts are excited to announce that they will be the exclusive distributors for Greenline Hybrid yachts for Australia. The new Greenline 36 and Greenline 48 will be featured at the eyachts exhibition at the Sydney International Boat Show in August this year.


Greenline, ‘The Hybrid’ yacht, is environmentally friendly boating at its finest, with a focus on comfort, luxury and efficiency, while reducing its impact on the environment by using up to four times less fossil fuel than a planing powerboat in similar conditions. Not only does this innovative boat reduce fuel consumption, it also allows efficient electric propulsion using power supplied by the battery and solar power.


Peter Hrones, managing director of eyachts, says, “I didn’t expect to enjoy the Greenline 36 as much as I did. The new hull design is so efficient that we powered effortlessly through rough waters. The interior was spacious, light and highly specced. The contemporary trawler-style exterior with a classic edge turned heads wherever we went.”


The team at eyachts believe that hybrid yachts are the way of the future, and that Greenline is leading the way. The hybrid motorcar market has taken hold across the world with Toyota chairman, Takeshi Uchiyamada, predicting that one in five motor vehicles sold around the world will be powered by a hybrid powertrain in 2020. With mainstream motorcar consumers wanting luxury, performance and comfort but also now considering their environmental impact in their choice, it was only a matter of time before this philosophy transferred into boating.


Famous design and world-class build


Greenline is European designed and built by people who know more about volume boat manufacturing than any body else in the world. It is designed by famous J&J Design studio created in 1983 by Jernej and Japec Jakopin, whose designs (over 80 of them) have gained Boat of the Year, Design, and Environmental awards from around the world. SVP Yachts develop and manufacture all new models, and continue to lead the path for the future of modern boating.


The contemporary yet classic exterior


The Greenline range has a distinctive head-turning appearance with a unique, modern concept yet classic retro design. The combination of contemporary design and materials and classic, beautiful woods gives it a great look. Safety features include electric fold-down transom for safe and easy access when boarding at marinas and after swimming, opening driver’s side door, and the safe easy walk around access up to the bow.


The innovative hull design


The revolutionary super displacement hull (protected) with twin stabilisers is the secret behind Greenline Hybrid’s ability to use less fuel, generate lower CO2 emissions, and produce less wake. It has unmatched anti-roll and tracking stability, and offers a comfortable and safe ride in all weather conditions, or when mooring in any wind.


The stylish interior


The interior is spacious, versatile and comfortable with easy flow through cockpit, galley and dining area with 360-degree panoramic views. The single level interior is open and light bringing the outside in while also offering plenty of shade for the hot Australian climate, as well as eyebrow covering of the windows and windscreen and a fully covered cockpit.


The new interior finish in modern light oakwood or classic teak, plus new leather door handles and furnishing, give a luxurious and modern feel. These are highly specced boats featuring twin electric hatches, bow thruster, full fridge/freezer, induction stove, air con, solar pack microwave, and more, as part of the standard specs.


The hybrid electric engines and driving performance


The Greenline is now onto the third generation hybrid electric engine, with Volvo and Yanmar engines as the new standard. New top speed for Greenline is 26 knots on the new GL36 with a single shaft drive Yanmar engine. It covers the speed range from zero to over double displacement speed – up to15 knots in case of a 10-metre waterline, and up to 20 knots in case of a 12-metre waterline.


The fuel consumption per nautical mile is less than that of a comparable displacement hull, and as little as one quarter of a semi-displacement, twin-engine planing boat.


Value for Money


Smaller Greenlines are classified as Category Ocean B, while Ocean Class Greenlines are classified as Category A. Greenline Hybrid is more cost-effective to buy and use than any comparable boat, thereby offering fuel efficiency savings, incredible value for money, and resale value. They are competitively priced when you consider the high level of standard equipment fitted, so a true drive away price will be offered on all Greenlines from 36 feet and above.
