New – Greenline 33 Hybrid http://en.nauticwebnews.com/224

New – Greenline 33 Hybrid

The concept of the Greenline 33 was developed by J&J Design at the end of 2007. After computer based studies and simulations using CFD (computational fluid dynamics) and Velocity Prediction software, a full range of tank testing trials were performed. Based on the 4 geometries tested in the tank a full scale hull shape was developed. Similar research effort was devoted to the development of the hybrid, battery and solar drive technology. Volkswagen Marine joined the project early in 2008 in order to help develop a new hybrid diesel-electric system.

Nine months of testing

A fully functional prototype was built by Seaway and tested during nine months in a range of displacement, trim, propulsion variants and weather conditions. During the initial months of 2009, Seaway performed the production engineering for the Greenline 33 and installed the associated tooling. A preliminary run of 6 pre-production yachts was built in August and September of the same year. The Greenline 33 was exhibited at major European autumn boat shows and won both design prizes and Boat of the Year awards. The craft has been tested in a variety of conditions in several European countries, in the Mediterranean, on the North Sea, on large lakes and on the rivers and canals of Northern and Southern Europe. This extensive automotive-style development and testing programme, a first in the boating industry, has resulted in a reliable and user-friendly product in spite of the use of new technology. Full volume production started in January 2010.

Vision and ideas on the future of motor boating

J&J Design, Seaway and VW Marine shared a vision and ideas on the future of motor boating that have led to the creation of the Greenline 33. All of these companies are convinced that this compact yacht will not only bring boating closer to the public in environmentally and economically challenging times, it will also improve the general public’s perception of boating as a sport and pastime.
