Green Voyager


Green Voyager is a unique 45m motor yacht of which the building process started in late 2009. It was designed for the owner who seeks a low impact motor yacht to cruise the globe responsibly, but who doesn’t want to compromise on luxury and comfort. The foundation of Green Voyager’s lowered impact is in compliance with RINA’s Green Star Plus Class notation. This means the yacht will significantly exceed the requirements of MARPOL. Kingship intends to achieve the highest Platinum level of Green Star Plus and even in some areas to exceed it. This means Kinships’ engineers and designer Axis Designs of Viareggio are concentrating on increasing efficiency in every area. Solutions will include heat reflecting glass, high efficiency insulation, heat recovery, heat pump calorifiers, gas treatment, ultra efficient props, bio lubes and fuels environmental operations manuals and much, much more. The aim is to reduce the power demand by an average of 20% compared to a conventional yacht of the same size and to go even lower at night. The hull efficiency is helped by a waterline length a mere 50cm shorter than the yacht itself, tank testing is underway now to refine it further. Through intense load, R & D sizes will be optimized so machines run at their most efficient load with smallest fuel burn. Efficiency rewards the owner twice; once for protecting the environment and then in operational cost savings. Green Voyager will be the first yacht in the world under 50 m built to Green Star Plus.
